Dent Removal Tools

Why stainless steel?

We chose to make this tool from stainless steel.  We know we’re spending our customers’ money, because that means that the tool price is higher.  Stainless steel costs more to buy and more to machine, and it’s harder to machine. So, why do it?  

We’re creating more and more tools that we hope will last a lifetime, and we think that’s worth a little more cost upfront.  Stainless steel is harder and stronger, and it’s much longer lasting because it isn’t susceptible to corrosion. 

At the Sax ProShop, I didn’t want my customers to see rusty tools in the shop, and I’m sure every other technician and shop owner can relate!  But regular steel tools rust quickly due to chemicals used in the industry, like vaporized flux, and it requires technicians to spend a lot of time polishing tools and coating them with oil, instead of doing what they do best. 

Stainless steel is also great because it’s non-magnetic.  Our tools won’t collect fillings and shavings, and that means you don’t have to worry about damaging brass with metal debris while you’re doing dent work.

Lastly, out of pride, I don't want to have the MusicMedic name on some rusty tool.  I want tools with my company’s name on it to be the best, to shine bright, so we make tools out of stainless even though we must sell them at a lower profit margin.

Thanks for choosing stainless steel and MusicMedic!

Just received my dent rod and oblong slotted dent ball. Never used one before. I thought it through, worked carefully and took my time. Removed a thumbprint size dent that was below the thumb rest on a 1946 Conn 6M. It turned out great. The thumb rest was pushed in a little too. Fixed that also. Wow, it turned out great. 
Thank you!
