I don't use it for trim, only 16d and 8d framing nail and also sheeting nails. Trim is so easy that I pull the trim off with a small thin pry bar and knock the nail through with pliers then grabbing the heads on the other side to pull them out. It's so easy and fast that it would be ridiculous to drag an air hose around to do it. Hell I would have the nails already pulled before the compressor even filled up with air. I pulled all the base board trim for the entire 5 bedroom house and removed the nails in a little over an hour maybe 2 hours at the most

This time around I was pulling 4'x8'x3/4" T&G sub-flooring so I couldn't get to the edge to pry it up first and had to pull all the nails before removing the plywood

Your more of a man then me, I would have put a full hazmat suit on before doing what you did. As it is I put several thick layers of clothing and jackets and full face ski masks on before ever crawling under my house to do repairs. Lucky for me I live in Washington state where there are NO black widows, just little fake widows.

I have funny story about spiders if your interested. I think I told this years ago, but I wouldn’t be able to find it now. Anyway back when I was an electrical contractor a very close friend who was a Builder got into a jam financially while in the middle of remolding a house so all of us subcontractors volunteered to help. I was already doing the electrical, but the plumber quit and walked off the job so my friend got his brother-in-law who was union journeyman plumber to help out. The only problem was that he did not know how to layout a job, it was always done for him so all he had to do fit all the pieces together.
I had seen so much plumbing in my construction days that I stepped in, made up a materials list and laid it all out for him just as a favor. In return my builder friend wanted to have another relative be my helper free of charge so I sent him under the house to push wires up from below and staple them.
Now this guy was a big biker type that belonged to a pretty tough MC club, but I heard a blood curdling scream as soon as he got under there. I didn’t know what to think, maybe a foundation wall fell on him crushing his legs or maybe he got bit by a rattlesnake I just didn’t know so I ran down there as fast as I could and found him outside shaking and screaming that he quit. He said he was attacked by a giant spider so I ran in to find a little daddy long legged spider walking across the wires.
I just couldn’t stop laughing as this big bad ass mussel guy riding off on his Harley flipping us off.

My father was as hard and tough as they come ... but he was deathly afraid of spiders.

I learned that fact when I was just a little kid. I used a jar from the kitchen cabinet to capture a large black widow spider that I found in the "jungle" part of our yard. That really cool spider was so jumbo that I had to show it to someone. I brought the jar inside to show it to my dad.

OMG I'm so sorry Faith, but I think I just got bit by a black widow this morning on the back of my neck. I had a spider web wrapped around my head this morning and then a mosquito was attacking my ears so I just assumed it was a mosquito bite. I can't see it, but it feels huge and hurts just like a spider bite. I'm going to have my wife take a photo of it when she gets home so I can see if it is
