Ive got a 3000 that i am going to try it on.. Just bought the new dynabrade buffer, so cant use it as it spins and orbits too... Supposed to be the newest gig in rotary buffers.. Guess that makes it not a rotary now huh??

Anyways, I always like a good excuse to have to buy another tool... A new Makita or Dewalt that spins up to 5000 wont hurt my feelings

Well I got it! I don't remember who suggested it, but using the stud gun with no stud worked great! It took awhile, about an hour or so. I started outside of the oil can area and worked my way in, spray quenching with a water bottle. I could watch it shrink. In one section the metal actually tore...yep ripped about 5-6 inches. Welding that up actually helped shrink it more. I'll try to post some pictures later.

You guys are the greatest!.


humble pie tip of the day # ??, if the tip of the stud gun falls out while shrinking metal, don't immediatly try to pick it up and shove it back in, you'll burn you fingers....like I did.

As my dad said,
"Didn't take long to look at that did it?" OUCH!!!
One thing you really want to watch out for on the disk is the CLEARANCE between IT and the side handle. Grinders seem to have different "heads" and some put the disk REAL close your hands so an extension or handle mod might be required. I got a 3M buff adapter I've been meaning to try to extend mine out a little farther.

As promised. Pictures of "oil-canned" panel area now repaired using stud gun with NO tip, all firmed up nice and solid. (Now panel is bondo'd, smoothed, and ready for more epoxy primer).

Suprise hidden accident damage was found when I stripped the old paint off, door is suicide style, with leading edge damage. Metal stresses tore panel. I welded rip with "20 guage" .030" wire. Quenched all hot spots with spray bottle.

I had no idea this van was wrecked. 9 years I've had it.

It was really important for me to take care of this area since it in the lower door, below latch. I forsee a hard door slam and have it " bloop-bloop " pop bondo out after it's all finished.

Pictures are in no partucular order.

Thanks for the help guys.

Glad the nail gun trick worked...it's worked for me in the past...glad to see it helped you here too!

What I really want to know is where are the picture or video of you picking up the "slightly warm" tip from the nail gun?

Don't feel bad we all do it from time to time...I was welding some stainless steel for the first time and grabbed and area that I had just finished - BBQ anyone?
