"A while back I bought Kent's "flow forming tool".  Basically hard plastic that can be set into a air hammer tool.  These are neat! I've mentioned before my rotator cuffs are shot, so I have a harder time with a hammer these days.  So I love this tool.  Ya, I still need to buy/build a shrinker/stretcher tool to get something done."

"Kent, I ordered a white insert from you. It works perfectly (the orange one we had in it was too soft). We form window openings in our teardrop custom camper trailers in .040 5052 Al. By doing it by hand with a plastic faced mallet it took two hours, now it takes 1/2 hour! Plus, we were able to leave the plastic film we get on the material to protect the surface while we are hammering, leaving a better finish. I am atttaching a picture to show you a formed window opening. To see what one of these looks like done go check out our website www.tinycamper.com. Thank you very much."
