    this is a must have door skin dolly

    I recently discovered this door skin dolly and it's the best one I've used by far! It has dimples in it so it actually does mild shrinking of high spots which raises low spots, all while you're...

    yes, the soda pop top look is from tucking forks. You then hammer on the walls gingerly to lock it in, then on top to smash the metal on top of each other so shrink it by making less space out of it...

    I'm not good enough to do all the metal work up front. It's much easier to tack here and there and do more planishing. It just makes sense.

    not thrilled with these first welds. This was with my 110. I later got a 220 and the welds are much smoother. I also improved technique at that point, but here, they're not very good.

    turbine supplied air masks

    I was thinking Hobby Air as that's a cheaper one that's NIOSH approved. I don't think the Breathecool units are certified. Anyhow, any opinions on full mask, half mask, and hood would be awesome.

    I have a small gap and I'm thinking if I use a couple screws it would help more than a clecko. Anyone know? I might as well just try it out.
