It is important that the panel be clean to bare
shiny metal for good weld contact.
Attach the ground cable to a bare metal surface
on the same panel that is to be repaired.
Never allow the welding electrode to make contact
with the grounding clamp.
A magnetic grounding clamp has been provided,
please make sure that the ground is kept clean and free
of metal debris that will be attracted.
Ground must be kept quality will be

appropriate pull electrode:
Short rod in conjunction with lever puller or by
itself for straight pulls by hand.
Long electrode in conjunction with slide weight
may be purchased separately for heavier damage.
The copper electrode is used for shrinking and
applying wiggle wire.
Wiggle wire is used for pulling creases evenly.
This item may be purchased separately.

start welding with minimum welding time.
Increase weld time only when necessary.
Long electrode may need a slight increase in weld
time over the short rod.
Wiggle wire of 1/16 (.60).
Thickness should be welded with a shorter time
than 3/16 (.90) wire.
When proper weld time is used it will be very
easy to remove the wire by simply wiggling it up and
can be done with the attached wiggle wire electrode on top
of the pull handle. Use
the wiggle tip when only a few high spots need shrinking.
Wetting the panel with a spray bottle first can enhance the
shrinking effect. As
with anything, practice and experience will lead to greater
weld times do not increase adhesion of the pull rods
and wiggle wire.
Note: Extensive shrinking may cause
the unit to overheat.
The transformer has a temperature fuse and will switch off
welding, the best way to break off the pulling rod
is by twisting.
Wiggling from side to side may cause a hole
in the panel.
Wiggle wire is removed by rocking up and
the machine on.

dents such as hail can be pulled “free-hand” without
the use of the leverage bar.
Once the electrode is attached to the bottom of
the dent, firmly pull the handle directly away from the
panel while simultaneously taking a bodyman’s hammer
in the other hand and tapping on the high spots on the
perimeter of the dent.
Continue this tapping process until the dent is
pulled to the desired position.

holding the handle will break the contact to the panel.

USING THE LEVERAGE BAR
The leverage bar is generally, the easiest
way to pull most dents.
The leverage bar, when used correctly, allows you
to finesse a damaged panel back to an original state.
the leverage bar in one hand, place the padded foot on
the sturdiest section of metal closest to the desired
pull point as is possible.
the other hand, hold the handle and place the electrode
through the two rails of the leverage bar, ideally 3”
to 6” away from the foot.
pull up on the handle of the leverage bar until the spot
is pulled out as desired.
When using the leverage bar, make sure the
electrode is pulled straight back from the metal and not
at an angle.
same hammer-tapping technique on high spots can be used
with the leverage bar.
using the tool it is periodically necessary to clean and
regrind the tips of the pull rods.
The tips are not being worn down, but actually are
adding material that needs to be removed.
The rods work better with a sharpened point of 3/32
to 1/8 of an inch across the top.
