anyone use weld tabs for multi pull on a standard stud gun?

The UK is so much more advanced for auto body. Find me one stud gun like this with these accessories in The US?

I think motor guard has a tip for small washers but I can't find it anywhere. I just see they sell copper washers but nothing about the tip. Anyone have that for stud guns that typically use studs?


what you get in The UK with a standard stud gun. Man, we need to get with the program in The US. We got a bunch of part swappers out here.

If you need to weld washers and use a hook, or tabs and clamp, for a heavier pull, use the MIG. For light pulls use wiggle wire. I don't understand why you bash the country you live in so much. Did you look at Spitznagel?

Or, something like this which blows away the stud welder. We have a few different ones at the shop, one being this one, awesome tool!

has nothing to do with bashing the country. In other countries the techs can fix more cause they don't replace parts as much. In metal shaping guys are better in other countries too. Not bashing the country, just stating a fact.

we have a car o liner version. Not sure if they have a tip for the multi pull tabs though. I will look for one and ask them to order it if they do. Still would be nice if the cheapie stud guns in The US had the accessories like the one I posted.

Not sure what your question is, exactly, but I have a stud gun tip that welds the linear zig-zag wires to a crease. This kit came with the "claw" style adapter for a slide hammer that pulls the multiple loops all at once. You can buy them on Amazon.

What the heck do you know about working in other countries when you can barely keep a job at Macco for more than a few months. Just Ridiculous. It must be tough being the only one that knows anything every where you go.
No old body men or painters or bosses to bash on today?
