At the moment I am not using it, but that has nothing to do with the usefulness of the tool. Since writing my review we moved from WI to CA and I have not started any new car bodies or metal working projects since finishing the sedan delivery. I would still say, for the beginner or the hobbyist, this is a decent tool for the money.

Hf planishing hammer

My son has put a lot of hours on the one in the shop, the dies are now a little rough from some metal sclupture he was doing, I need to spin them in the lathe then re- harden them with some casenite, heres a pict of him working on the Lakester bucket. A 2 X 6 hung from the chain hoist on the gantry crane, some old weight lifting irons on one end to balance it.
cboy , the southworth 4 X 4 lift table is in the left side of the pict and a vise is in the corner slide in. IT retracts into a iron frame sunk into the floor. when it is down the top is level with the floor. the planishing hammer has a steel plate bolted to the base and a 1 " solid bar that fits in the slide - ins.
