Rachel, one way to pull nails after the head breaks
off is with a nail puller. It's kind of hard to
describe, but it has jaw that grip the shank harder
the harder you pull. Usually the way it is used is
by setting the jaws on either side of a flush set
nail head then useing integral slide hammer to
drive the jaws into the wood and under the head.
You can use them to pull a headless nail, but if
the nail is rusty and/or the wood very hard, they
may just bite a piece of the nail off. They cost
about $40, so be sure you can return it if it doesn't
work for you.
Another option might be to just drive the headless
nails in then set them deeply with a nail set.
