Here is a little video of the stud welder in action, both pulling and shrinking.

If you will notice I just TAP the trigger, holding it there burning the stud into the metal. You will notice the stud comes right off the metal after pulling. An even lighter tap will do the job. Being under pressure of the camera I didn't do it as I usually do, even faster tap on the trigger. On many dents the stud doesn't need to be anywhere near that well welded on. I will usually put it on so light I have to very carefully slide the slide hammer on being careful not to push it to the side AT ALL or it will simply fall right off.

Here is the shrinking tip. It will work, but I don't like it, does more damage than good.

Here is the slide hammer I use. I really like it, it comes off the stud very easy.

Working out dings

I watched metal finishers in the factory use a lot of different shaped J or L tools. A T handle welded to the end of a hood or deck lid torsion spring and various lengths. Work the tool in through an access hole or punch a hole in a hiden area and pry then work like a finish picking hammer, then a daub of sealer over the hole. They used those more than the weld studs.

In the seventies I was guilty of drilling, screwing and snatching with the dent pullers but then I evolved! I now use my old slide hammer dent pullers for seal pullers.
