Thanks for the tips
I have used that process before with great results. Use the disc to warm up the metal then can move that metal around that didnt want to move before.

If you are finding that disc is too big for that area take a small 3in rolec grinding disc and ground that disc smooth on some scrap metal. Then run that disc over the area to be shrunk. Works great on small areas, as ALL you are doing is heating the metal...Eric
