This is not very elegant, but disconnect the ground clamp from the work piece. When you pull the trigger the wire spool will run without any current flowing to the work piece.

I tried that (while welding) and it works once in a while about 2 out of 10 trys. its very hard to do...
I did try cutting some wire and welding it to the metal and this worked so before I go any farther I'll get my fulcrum puller finshed (homemade)and see if the wire will actually be strong enough to pull a dent...I'm also working on a stud holding attatchmant for the tip so I can weld studs on from my stud welder...This'll work well for the bigger dents...
