Smarter Than the Metal - Contouring and Finishing Sheet Metal Welds
Body panel repair and fabrication are a primary reasons people want to learn to weld sheet metal. "Smarter Than the Metal - Contouring and Finishing Sheet Metal Welds" explains how to use a hammer, dolly, torch and file to stretch, shrink, and metal finish sheet metal panels and welds. Metal finishing is making a welded or repaired body panel smooth enough to paint without using any filler! The black art of "heat shrinking" is fully explained. There are practical exercises that you can practice, practice, practice on and then grade to see what you are doing right or not so right. Finally, the early exercises lead to practicing metal finishing on simulated door skin repairs and patch panels.

Save on shipping by combining purchases with MIG, TIG, or Plasma parts. Any item which ships by priority mail for $5.95 and has an additional item cost of .50 can be combined with the first item shipping for $5.95 and each additional item shipping for .50. So, for example, if you purchased 1 set of nozzles, 1 set of ,035" tips, and 1 set of .030" tips, the first item would ship for $5.95 and each additional item would be $.50, for a combined shipping charge of $6.95 for the 3 items. However, you must combine your purchases into one payment for this shipping discount.
Again, if you want a shipping discount on multiple items, do not pay for any items, and we will send you an invoice. Separate payments for each item by paypal are not eligible for combined shipping. Single payments for multiple items with invoices which E-bay has created with the incorrect shipping amount are not eligible for combined shipping. We can not refund shipping charges once payment(s) have been made for the incorrect shipping amount. When in doubt, wait for us to send you an invoice!!
