Dent killer stud gun attachment...can anyone vouch for it?

Trying to skim off some time and feel if this thing works decently I will save a lot of time with this. Just haven't heard any feedback on it.

Anyone?

Does it work? Yes but here was my issue, one I was using a 9000 series stud gun and they weight about twice what a normal stud gun weighs and I just thought it was to aggravating and I really did not see the point as the stud gun by itself would do everything that thing would do and twice as fast.
A third hand would have helped a lot.

Think I used mine three times and retired it to either attic in play garage or attic above garage at house, years ago.

My 2 cents is take that money and up grade the stud gun you have with either a better stud gun or the multi hook pulling attachment where you can pull a 1/2 dozens studs or more at a time.

If I wanted to pull multiple studs I could just take a cheap duck bill vise grip, mark up the mating surface with a cutt off wheel, and weld on a ring to the end. I guess I'm just looking for a cheapie way to get a studless stud gun but thinking it's not possible unless I just purchase the real deal.

Anyhow, it sounds cumbersome.

The closest you can get is simply not burning in the studs. Just a tap on the trigger and after pulling wiggle the stud with your fingers and pull it off. That is as close as you will get.

Yeah, I already know that. I could get closer with this dent killer thing but it looks big and clumsy. I can totally see it working for tiny dings right before filler.

If you still have it I imagine you don't value it much. Would you mind selling it? I will buy it. I can imagine this thing having some use. I usually do an initial metal bumping but always fine tune right before filler. I can envision this thing being helpful if it's not too big and cumbersome. Do you think you'd have the same opinion if you had say a normal h & S stud gun?

It's a puller, how can that be faster than a regular stud puller?
I could pull a dozen studs on a dent with my puller before
you could get that thing set up for one.
And the other studs would get in the way of useing that thing.
I don't see any benifit.

If working a larger dent, you have to go back and forth on
all the studs to pull the dent out gradually, working from the
outside in. If you want to do that faster, change your puller
to have pliars or Vise-Grips on the end like I did.
I grab and pull and go back and forth very fast by just holding
them with this puller

The 9000 when you pull the trigger you also have to press a side button as the 9000 sets the stud perfect, without you guessing how long to hold the trigger.
I have entry lever stud gun and a Stinger, now those would be a lot easier to use but I never use them out of habit.

If I can find the item I would sell it but won't have time to look till Saturday as we are swamped making stuff.

clecos are awesome! If you're doing intricate parts that you have to mock up a few times it has its place. A screw is second to none in that it holds your panel on tighter but if you continue to screw it and unscrew the hole gets to big and it loses holding power, but if you use the clecos for mock up and THEN use the screws for the final time you'll see your screws holding much tighter.

I hear you. I like the standard app of using a stud gun for initial metal bumping but right before I fill I like getting the small stuff so I don't have to put my filler on thick. THat's where I assume the dentkiller would be handy. I wouldn't expect it to actually work out good sized dings. Just the finesse stuff would be good enough for me.

I see why it could be annoying cause your other hand is on the dentkiller handle holding it up. Sounds like you need three hands with that stud gun. I have the yellow marble H&S gun that doesn't have that. If you find the dent killer let me know, I'll buy it from you for sure. Just find it and name a price.
