    Yee HAW!
    Is what you are describing sort of like the "English wheel" used by metal formers in custom autobody and other sheet metal shops?

    Mike -- Yes, I know the Z60 Dent Machine ... I watched Gary Ferree use it
    to remove dents from French Horns I would have never
    attempted. It works on all horn bells, Cornet thru Sousaphone.
    I don't have one (wish I did, too) ... probably $3000 US with all
    the proper accessories,

    Ed -- Yes, I believe it is similar to the "English wheel" as used by the
    "panel beaters" across the pond. I've watched Jesse James on
    one of those "Monster Garage" Public TV channels form custom
    motorcycle gas tanks with a similar machine.

    Don't know if they deal with folks outside the trade, but if you want
    to learn some interesting things about tools and such used in brass
    and woodwind repair, try contacting Ferree's Tools, Inc. at :
