Dagger Tools Steel Surface Finish Slapper/Flipper - SLBS-55

  • Description
  • Reviews
  • Latest addition to the Dagger Tools product line are Steel Surface Finish Slapper/Flippers for metal shaping and auto body repair, our SLBS-55 standard length finishing slapper can do smoothing (planish)-blending-stretching-shrinking on all metal type surfaces. 1 1/4" wide blade x ¼" thick x 7" effective blade length (very slight blade curve) slight spring feel of the blade, 14" overall length, with a generous blend radius on the working blade edge.
  • Carbon steel construction, heat treated and high luster polish on working blade surface.
  • Use on mild steel and aluminum materials.
  • Foam handle grip for comfort and surface feel.
  • If you haven't used a metal surface slapper they are an excellent complement to any existing panel beater or auto body hammer. But, different than the auto body hammer the steel slapper blade allows you to disperse forces over a much larger area and enhances your control of surface changes.
  • The steel slapper will bring up low areas in a panel if worked with a hand dolly-handle dolly-T Dolly-forming head, our supportive surface. You can also lower and lightly shrink high surface areas using similar techniques as with the low spots.
  • The large surface area of the blade provides smoothing quality than a panel beater would normally not provide. All with a non-marring surface quality. Need to initiate some lineal stretching in targeted areas the steel slapper working on a solid backed dolly or a leather shot bag will effectively perform to expectations.
  • We've also developed these steel slappers to allow working on the late model heat treated aluminum bodies for smoothing and blending of dents and surface marking. We also offer a stubby version SLBS-55S when you want slapper weight to be slightly less or surface access with the SLBS-55 maybe more desirable.
