History: During the past 39 plus years Allen Buresh, owner of Coachsmithing, has been commissioned to re-body and or refurbish classic Ferrari cars as well as Porsche, Delahaye, Cobra, Lotus and others.
As usual, when a refurbishing/ restoration project begins, extensive sheet metal repairs are required. Fabrication and welding in of panels and patches, annealing and straightening of old and tired sheet metal, welding cracks and finally planishing and metal finishing are all part of this exhaustive process. In the past, the standard method of straightening and planishing were employed via hammer/slapper and dolly work, then "metal finishing" by means of pick and file work of the entire car which involved an enormous amount of time and labor to achieve the desired high quality finish. During this process, the best planishing results were obtained with the hand held slapper used in conjunction with an auto body dolly. This smoothed and readied the material the quickest and most satisfactorily.
While being involved in such a task, the thought of a hand held power planisher came to mind. A unit that could "iron out" wrinkled and damaged sheet metal, without the need to use a pick and file would be wonderful and a "game changer"! Previously developed "hand held" planishing hammers for such tasks weighed approximately 15 - 25# and consisted of an air hammer mounted on an alignment hoop that positioned a small anvil under the hammer head, this being fastened on the other end of the hoop and the metal was planished in-between. Allen had an entirely different idea in mind.
He created rough drawings that envisioned a small, easy to position, ergonomic, light weight tool, that was independent of hoops. Several years elapsed and Coachsmithing evolved into a company that did "one offs", rebodies and complete "ground-up" builds of various classic models. Not knowing what to expect and thinking this could be the "secret weapon" for metal finishing, the hammer was plenty powerful but it proved cumbersome, much too heavy, u.
Sing the smallest hoop the unit weighed at least 15 pounds. Difficult to control and keep in a position that wouldn't crease and damage the sheet metal. Soon afterward, we began developing our own planishing hammer based on the aforementioned drawings.
After several more years and prototypes and extensive testing, the patent pending, OX Planishing Hammer is available! Created by professionals, for professionals and "DIY" in the sheet metal shaping industry.
