Kent, I have used the lessons from the Nov 14-15 class and beat the daylights out of everything, but I have a
question. When starting to work out a dent with hammer/slapper and dolly is it best to start from
the edges and work toward the point of contact or vice versa? I saw the procedure on that aircraft
part but the full order of working points didn't sink in. Thanks again for a great class. GP
The Tin Man Respondeth:
On dents larger than a golf ball would make: bump up, then support firmly with dolly while slapping down the
high area surrounding. The low will rise, the highs will fall. Dents smaller: don't bump up, just
support the low firmly, while thumping the surrounding "high". The low will come up.
Both methods allow for the metal to "lever" into position, like the reverseof the denting process.
