While these are obviously intended for basic auto body panel straightening, they have all sorts of uses around the shop. If you’ve ever found yourself trying to shape a piece of thin metal — sheet or otherwise — these are the core tools that’ll help you in the process.
And at just $25 for the set, there’s really no excuse not to have ’em in the drawer, even if you have no intent of learning sheet metal work. These are perfect for reshaping a metal bracket or putting a curve in a small piece of thin bar stock. They’re not the best hammers and dollies around, but they’re great for general shop use.
This set includes three hammers and four dollies, including curved, general purpose, heel, and double-ended — none of which I can recognize by sight. When I used the dollies I have around the shop, I just pick up one that looks like it’s shaped right for the job and go to town.
