I spent half a day just playing with my slip roll , just making stuff to see what all it will do . The coolest thing was a beveled trans tunnel . The next thing you need is a shrinker and stretcher for sheet metal .

I saw a couple of those at one of the stores i was at today and they are definitely on my list of tools. As well as a plasma cutter, a 7 ton 2 post lift, etc............

Those would all be quality purchases , I have six lifts in my shop but when I am building a car most of the time I use a set of jack stands that are 3 ft. tall . That way I can level evrything with shims to get the frame perfectly level and a creeper is no problem . If I have a lot of overhead work I will roll it over to a lift for sure .

How does the sheer part work. Back when I was in high school shop we had a big sheering thing that you press a foot pedal and the blade came down and chopped the metal off. Is that how yours works?

It is basically two sharp edges and it cuts left to right.......You can't do heavy metal like the ones in shop class.
