    Has anyone tried this tool? I would like to get it. Can it go into corners? The reason I want this, is my welder will not go cold enough to do a full stitch weld. This way, I can use plug welds. Thoughts, oppinions plz.

    I've got one. Great on straight or slightly curved material. Can't really get into corners with it. Not very good on tight radius stuff. The hole punch feature is awesome. Sure saves a lot of work when prepping for plug welds.It's a neat tool to have around, (especially for the price).

    yup, what Dcubb said... i have snappys version, works awesome.. i also use a version that you run in an air hammer.. little better in corners.. can't find it on their site tho..

    plug welds are the way to go... :D

    My sister's ex informed me that him and a friend made one with a pair of big vise grips. So, I'm going to try that first and see if I can do that.
