Eastwood Pneumatic Perfect Panel Prep Tool®

Description

The Eastwood Pneumatic Perfect Panel Prep Tool® is an exclusive patent pending design, which easily provides a perfectly beveled 45° weld-prepped edge in 20 or 18 Gauge sheet metal to achieve solid, full-penetration MIG or TIG butt welds.

  • Each strike forms a perfect 0.062” x 45° beveled flange
  • Works great on 20 to 18 gauge
  • Proper weld-prepped edges allow strong, flush, crack-free welds in sheet metal
  • The convenient hole punch feature provides clean, burr-free 0.19” holes

A must for the beginning welder and professional alike. Minimizes blow through and warpage when joining panels. Great for patch panels or full quarter panel replacement. Simply cut patch or full panel. Overlay panel over repair area, scribe and cut panel on vehicle and use the Pneumatic Weld-Prep tool to create the “perfect weld edge”. The formed edge of both panels is now created that will accept the full penetration MIG or TIG bead with almost no post grinding or leveling minimizing warpage and crack potential around your repair. Patent Pending.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Works as described I have the hand one but the air operated one saves a lot of time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needs hydraulic fluid then works awesome! People saying it did not work need to read the directions. There is a set screw near the head. Take it out and fill with fluid. I have both the edge one and the flange one and I could not imagine not having them now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick crimp for patch panels This thing made quick work of a big job. I replaced rocker panels and floors and cab corners on my Chevy Truck. Would have taken longer with vise grips. Made welding the joints easier and neater, and a overall better fit and finish to the whole job.

Can the perfect panel prep tool (pnuematic) be used inverted to send the 45° the other way, say for door skins ?

Asked by: Chuck
you can send the 45 the other way but it can not be made any larger. a tipping die and bead roller is also excellent for making the lip of a door skin

Does this "shrink" the panel enough that you should allow a little extra material when cutting to fit the panel?

Asked by: T666
you will need to allow a very small amount extra metal, but as with any panel replacement, it is a cut and fit process.

I will be MIG welding in a number of floor pans. Normally I am told the metal should be butted together. IF I put a 45% bend on both existing and new do I need to overlap the two pieces so they butt at the V? If so how much. Tech just said a 1/2 inch !!

Asked by: MNTOM
If your using the Perfect Panel Prep Tool, all that is needed is for the 2 metal panels to touch. The 45° will than be filled with your weld. There is no need to overlap your panels.

I took it out of the box to use for the first time since Christmas. I squeeze the trigger and the jaws do nothing. Could it be low on hydraulic fluid?, the outside was cover in oil. If so what kind of fluid should I use?

Asked by: Flightmedic911
Yes, it certainly could e low on oil. This tool should be filled with air tool oil.

If welding causes shrinking or distortion can I still hammer and dolly the back of the weld after using this tool?

Asked by: Nicw
We have never attempted to hammer and dolly a weld in which we have used this perfect panel prep tool.
