Hi Mike. I described my hand EW in this thread. Larger EWs in hand can combine all the tools from my large EWs.

Hi Jaroslav,

Thanks for your reply.

Sorry I should have been clearer. I'm interested in the hand held tool based on the vice grips. You appear to be using it as a bead roller to tip the edge of the aluminium sheet.

Thanks,


Mike

Mike. I use it to smooth the shape. It will lift its shape a bit where you need it. But it smoothes well shape.



Did you mean a hand tool with jaws? I don't have it.

I finished one back part and I hope that the shapes will follow smoothly.

Very impressive work! What for a car/brand it is? A question to you-> how you make the shrink of the last panel -with a kick shrinker or with thumbnail dies?

Moritz. I use Eckold and tools and EW. On the paper template you can see where it needs to be reduced and which line you have to follow.
