Karl Fisher at Make It Kustom just keeps coming with DIY tools and techniques for shaping metal with professional results. I love what he does, his enthusiasm, and his way of conveying these lessons to all of us in YouTube land. In this video, he’s going over the ins and outs of the Tucking Hammer which is used for shrinking metal and getting out your frustrations. Using one is pretty simple in principle and makes big changes to your sheet metal in no time at all. That means you get to start seeing results right away, even if things get way uglier before they get better. Check out the video below and let us know what you think.
