Welders Helper 3X3 Set Flat/Curve/Angle Copper Plates is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product, But Little Expensive Bought this set along with flat 8" & 4" copper plates. Copper plates easier to use but magnets are whimpy and ultimately fail, so these spoons become a must. Odd shapes does help find a flat surface behind the weld to reduce blow-out. Minus some form of a welders helper when working with thin sheetmetal and/or aged floor board/fender sheetmetal, you will face constant aggravation from blow-outs. These spoons help solved the problem and do work. Handle does warm some when doing extensive work, but not enough to be a problem. If flat plates had better magnets, they would be the ultimate choice. But they don't so this set remains good alternative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beefy When I opened the box this tool was obviously far more beefy than the photo.. It really does do what it was made for.. so the handle gets warm well, if you go swimming you get wet, play with fire you can get burned.. dip it in water or buy a second set so one can kool while you grab the next, get better gloves.. simple fixes to the heat issue.. I only wish that for the price they would put a handle on each piece of copper or at least offer extra handles.. my handles came in red.. I like the red.. I love these tools..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would highly recommend for bodywork. This product is borderline mandatory for body working. I have an old imported rust bucket, lots of patch panels. This has made it considerably easier to cleanup and finish the body- no more blow throughs! If you value your time get these!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good sturdy tool i used this to weld my patch panels and reassemble panels that i cut spot welds from. good thick copper and the ability to offset the handle with 3 different copper pieces makes this tool worthy over other copper spoons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT I recently bought this to help me restore my first of thre Austin Healey Bugeyes. I was having trouble welding in some holes in body parts, and did not resort to brazing or body putty. I did not know of such a product until I looked through my newest Eastwood catalog. Great product...works great, easy to use, solves a ton of problems for me. Thanks Eastwood.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Handle grip melted first use First use and after welding up 5x 7/16" holes in a chassis rail in a row, the handle covering got too hot and started to melt. You have to be careful and constantly dip it in cold water to cool it down even while wearing welding gloves. I expected better from something made in the USA as even a wooden handle would have been a better choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from indispensable tool for older body restorations recently purchased this tool and have pressed it into service immediately. welded pinholes in floors and used for a backer when welding in patch panels for no blow through. would be nice if it was cheaper,but well worth the expense. well made product!
