Hello I have a small cabin in Northern MN. When we built it, we tied the logs together with large spikes. Now we want to cut in a window in the loft end wall. If i use a large say welding magnet will it go through the logs enough to find the spikes??? So we can cut with a chainsaw to get through then maybe a sawzall for the rods??
