Anyone ever used the type of dent puller that is electric and tack welds a small stud to the metal then you use a slide hammer to pull it out.Eastwood sells them for around 300. I saw a fella on e-bay was selling them NEW for around 160.

They workl fantastic.
The hole is so much smaller than drilling one and threading a slide hammer into it.
they use them at Coast Mountain Bus co
(BC Transit)
It Fires a "nail" into the panel and welds it there. Than, you can slide it out.
You can get ones that as well, pull out the panel, so it does it all in one tool.
Afterwards, you just grind the nail off. It fills the hole with the remaining part, so it's all good.


Bit of a rambling there, but
They work great.

I was talking about the type that just tacks a pin to the metal no hole, and you attach a slide hammer to it and pull the dent out.My buddy said he's seen them used to remove dents from oil pans without removing them.therefore their is no hole made.
anyone else?

That's what I was wondering. Watched a guy use one and it was slick. No holes.
