Tips For Removing Glued Particle Board?


I am currently ripping out a 1/4" particle board glued to 3/4" Plywood T&G with strips of subfloor glue (and nailed with sheetrock nails..WTF?). Anybody have any tips or tricks to make it easier? Basically I've been using a hammer, pry bar, chisel, scraper, floor sander and elbow grease. There has got to be an easier way!

You may try a small hand held jack hammer with a paddle bit.

I have a Bosch Hammer drill/demo hammer, that will go to town. Besides busting tiles with it I use it fo about anything I need to chisel up. Go around a room, taking up tackstrip, and a 12 x12 room takes me about 2 minutes, instead of 15, with a hammer and nail/pry bar

Thanks Floordude... I used a roto hammer with a chisel bit and it worked like a charm. It least got it down to a point where I didn't have to sand too much of what was left or kill my hands in the process.
