    Our Panel Beating Bags and mallets have been a staple in our product line for years and it's one of the first things you should buy when starting the road down metal shaping and fabricating greatness.

One thing you need to do when using the bag is to make sure you're comfortable and have a good base to use the bag on. Hammering on the bag takes a lot of force and you need plenty of space all around you to swing the hammer and move the part in all directions.

  • When to Use Each Type of Primer

    When it comes to doing body work, priming, and painting a car it can all be a bit overwhelming to decide on which products to use.
