    Very disappointed in he adapter for the mig gun and the slide hammer. I practiced for over an hour using the adapter, I just couldn't get the tip vs stud vs mig wire to marry up. won't use it. As far as the slide hammer goes, disgusting. The head wouldn't catch the stud, the cam on the end of the slide hammer would NOT hold the stud. Talked with an Eastwood rep, he did replace the slide hammer with a better grade slide hammer, but I haven't used the new tool yet and I had to pay return shipping ($13.10) on the slide hammer that came with the kit. Poor business practice!

    Again, tthe start of something good. Iwill be drill and tapping a large thunb screw to hold the studs and do awau with the cam lock which is engineedered at the scrong spirial, which is why it wears prematurely and does not griv properly. Bad design, fixable.

    Watched the video, practiced on flat stock and similar metal, but when trying to use this in any areas that were other than very flat and wide access, the stud welds didn't take, or the stud posts didn't set
    For serious hobbiest not for production use (Posted on 3/11/13)

    Ordered dent puller kit to work on father/son project truck. Could not justify cost of stand alone stud welder for such random, occasional use. We followed the instructions and the added warnings to keep the roller taught before slide hammering. Had no issues at all. It may help teach a little patience to some individuals.
    Not the quality I expected from Eastwood (Posted on 2/22/13)

    The nozzle worked ok, unless it was a sharper dent, then the wire doesn't hit where it is supposed to. The dent puller did not grab the pins after I used it on 8 pins. Do yourself a favor and do not purchase this tool.

    Eastwood Comments:

    To assure secure pin retention and avoid premature wear of the cam wheel, follow the below procedure. This process will eliminate the issue mentioned in the customer reviews, prolong cam wheel life and assure pin retention to easily pull dents.
    · Insert slide hammer cam wheel over pin to be pulled.
    · Insert as much of the pin into the slide hammer cam wheel as possible.
    · Grasp cam wheel with either left or right thumb and pull back while applying tension on the slide hammer with the other hand.
    · Hold thumb on cam wheel while activating slide hammer weight to slowly pull dent.

    Note: It is best to weld multiple pins around the outside perimeter of the dent in a spiral pattern toward the center of the dent ( see instructions for details). Slowly pull on each pin multiple times and remove dent in an even fashion. With the above procedure on securing the cam wheel to the pins you will avoid premature wear to the cam wheel.

    I consider myself a good welder and teachable but I've almost worn out the knobs on my welder and the set screw on the adapter and still can't get this silly thing to work.
    I've tried .025 and .030 wire, changed speed and heat and the pins either pull off or burn in half. I've moved the adapter up and back and get the same result. Thought maybe the fender wasn't clean enough so spent close to an hour trying to set it up on new steel.
    I finally got so frustrated that I abandoned the effort and bought a cheap stud gun from a discount tool supplier (which works great!).
    I'm very sorry I wasted money on this tool and would gladly return it for a full refund!
    holder for pins wears out way too fast (Posted on 2/21/13)

    wore out both sides of both knurled wheels in no time..now system is useless. contacted Eastwood told to send entire system back for replacement. all we need is better wheels(harder metal) and availability of replacement wheels...very disappointed. working on our first resto and this has made it more difficult than easier..

    I have used a stud welder and would not spend $99.00 on something that wares out so quick. With a actual stud welder you dont have to drag your welder out. Plus, the slide hammer that came with the stud welder did not ware out on a truck i'm working on that had multiple dents in amost every panel. Do yourself a favor and buy a real stud welder for $250.00 that comes with a good slide hammer, plus studs.
    Stud Welder Nozzle is Great / Slide Hammer is junk (Posted on 1/19/13)

    I really like the stud welder nozzle. It was easy to install and use on my Eastwood Mig 135 that I like a lot.

    The recommended settings in the instructions were just right for the metal I was working on.

    The problem is with the slide hammer. As the other reviewer stated the "knurled wheel" wears out, it can be reversed and spare is included with the kit.

    The "knurled wheel" or locking cam as the instruction booklet calls it only lasts for about 20-30 pins before it needs to be replaced.

    Eastwood should provide a better locking cam or at least replacement cams for purchase or provide a better slide hammer with this kit to make it viable.


    Welder adapter is great; Slide hammer makes the system a pain. (Posted on 12/22/12)

    Welding the pins on is a snap with the adapter. It was easy to set up and work. The annoying part about the kit is the slide hammer. The small knurled cam on the slide hammer is weak and wears out quickly. They provide a second cam in the kit however about twenty pins is about all the cam can handle. You can flip the cam for additional use but the slide hammer ruins this product.
