    Thanks! The shrinking disc is one of the best learning tools there is for sheet metal. You have probably already seen my shrinking a reverse shape technique. A great, intuitive way to make a difficult shape easily.

    I'm working on a section of dent repair this week for my video that shows traditional methods as well as a faster, easier to learn technique that is slightly less puzzling than hitting down with a hammer to bring the metal up, as in on dolly stretching.

    The shrinking disc is so much more than simply the best metal finishing tool there is. My DVD: Custom Metal Bodywork will have a section showing two ways to build your own shrinking disc as well. Can you tell I love this tool? Now if there were a way to make it more quiet..

    Don't mean to hijack the thread but John are you going to be able to make it to the Westport Super Cruzz again this year. I have had a few people tell me that they didn't even know you were there. I thought we announced it alot and all but I guess they were not paying attension. Gumpa
