A slaters ripper is a handy item for sliding in behind items (shaving 
cabinets etc) that have been glued to walls with dobs of various types 
of goop. Sharpen the end of the ripper, or at least get it pointy. The 
ripper can be pushed through most pliable goops, or you can use the hook 
as a crude saw.

What's a slaters ripper? Google.

There are more efficient tools for removing items of walls. A 
sledgehammer for example works quite well.

I've always thought it would be interesting to compile a list of new 
for older tools  -- not, for example, singing the ergonomic virtues of 
hand saws, but collecting new applications.
