Re: Dent tool

what you mean is a known as a 'stud' gun.. The head of the screw has a small amount of weld on it, when the current passes thru the screw the heat melts it and fuses the screw to your panel. You can then put a slide hammer ovr the screw and use a nut to fasten it

THe cheapest way is to just tac weld a bolt or two to the panel, follow the slide hammer proceedure and grind the bolt off when you have pulled the dint out..

Re: Dent tool

You will be looking at big dollars for one of them mate and panel beating tools aint cheap.

We just bought a new nail gun at work plus it is also a spot welder aswell and it cost $17000, for a basic setup of panel beating tools you be looking at a minuim of $500 upwards

Re: Dent tool

That would be a neat way to do it - extra strong small electro magnet and pull . . .

Cogo. . OMG $17k for a whizz bang nail gun ? Wouldn't want to leave that at a work site
