sure for big dents that require lots of pulling that 'll work,.. even connecting 4-5 studs together and pulling them all at the same time.this would be more for golf ball size dents and dings...One quick zap with the welder then pull the wire with a pair of vice grips or vice grips welded to a puller. The thing is a welder is a neccesity and almost everyone has one but a stud welder ,Thats a luxury that;ll be used very little so most DIY's wont have one ..converting a mig to do this would be pretty handy...
