Since the beginning of automotive time, fixing body damage and pulling dents has been a necessary task. Unless you're one of the lucky few that scored a pristine barn-find, your going to have to pull some dents and repair some battle scars on your project vehicle. Sure you could just drop it off at the body shop with a trunk full of Benjamins ($100 bills for those not hip), and sit back and let them deal with it.. but what's the fun in that? Here at Eastwood it's no secret we love DIY projects and we also enjoy helping you save money. The new MIG Stud Welding Kit was designed just for that. We all have limited space in our shop and limited cash in our pockets, both of which disappear quickly when you have to buy an expensive, bulky stud welder. Our product engineers worked hard to develop a kit you could attach to one of the most common tools in your garage; the MIG welder. Slid the kit on, drop in an ordinary resistance welder stud, dial your welder in and your ready to go. With a quick press of the MIG gun trigger, your stud is attached and you can start pulling the dent with the slide hammer.
Make sure you check out the video above which shows you the basics for pulling a dent (even if you have one of those large resistance stud welders). It also gives some insight into how easy it is to use our new stud welding kit; you won't be disappointed. If you have any ideas for time-saving or money-saving products, feel free to drop us a line and we'd be happy to try and make your idea become a reality!
We just got our shipment of our new Eastwood Professional Hammer and Dolly Sets in from our factory. I managed to grab one right off the truck and snap some pics. These are top notch quality. I have been using and abusing our pre-production test set of these, and they have been holding up quite well. Luckily I have some rough projects to put the kit through the paces with!
