Nails!
 
I'm just wondering if anyone knows of the fastest, cleanest most inexpensive way to flush cut hundreds of nails..I tried a multimaster tool and not only was it time consuming and messy from the saw digging into the wood I kept thinking of how fast I was going to kill the saw blade I was using and those blades if anyone knows aren't cheap. So if anyone can give me a better solution I would very much appreciate it.? :detective: :help:

Take a min. and back up and tell us why you have to cut off so many nails.

And yes that was completly wrong tool for that job.
Super tool just the wrong one for this one.
If you use a lot of blades let me know and I'll let you in on a place I found I can buy them for about $6.00 a blade.

Air grinder with a cut off wheel.

Just a guess, you think it's a good idea to cut off all the nail shanks on roofing nails for some reason.

Electric grinder with cut off wheel is what I have used if I could not snip or pull out many, many nails. Be mindful of the hot sparks though.

Can you mar the wood a little?
As another said what and why?

ME ME! Please, Joe.
And I agree, the burning question is "Why do you need to cut off so many nails?

Since they never came back to answer us, I'm going to just guess..... he wants to cut off the nails poking through the roof so he can use the attic for storage space and not have to worry about giving himself a lobotomy while working up there.

Mouse, if that's the case it would be real easy to shove some insulation board up there and tack it in. I usually use those nails to comb the blown in insulation out of my hair B4 i come down from there.

Or as a form of coarse acupuncture.
