On this episode of You Need This Tool I feature the Wiss Hand Seamer or hand brake. This may be a tool most are not familiar with but its a pretty cool one.

Welcome to The Fab Forums. My name is Kyle Voss and I am a automotive fabricator that produces Custom Automotive Fabrication content of all kinds. Including Carbon Fiber, TIG Welding, Metal Shaping, Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, Custom Choppers, and everything in between. I work hard to bring you new content on a weekly basis.

Here are some of the builds you can find on this channel.
I have built several Chevy trucks. The first was my 1964 C10 named Crown Spoyal and the most recent C10 truck project was the 1969 I recently sold to a friend named the Black Pearl.

I am also finishing up a custom twin turbo Ford Mustang build I call the Gray Goose. It’s a 400 cubic inch Windsor style engine with twin 70mm turbos. I am hoping to make around the 1000 horsepower mark to the tires on this particular build.

Last but not least is the one off custom hot rod build called the Bibbster. This is what I call a modern day hot rod. It’s made from an old Ford Mustang foxbody, but made to look like an old school open wheeled hot rod.

I also feature other fabricators and shops like Cutworm Specialties hand formed aluminum wide body kit for a BMW e46. Jeb Greenstone has also built a twin turbo, coyote powered model A style hot rod from scratch, and is currently building a Toyota TE72 wagon drift car powered by a 1UZ Lexus v8. Jeb’s custom fabrication skills are fun to watch and always make for good videos.

Check out my playlist to see some or all of these builds.

Christopher Hendricks says:

Using mine to do a a mounting surface for custom mount for my rocker switch panel in a truck. Works well for small jobs. For large jobs a brake is definitely what you want.

Joe Patterson says:

Jess Colliflower says:

My eyes crossed so many time that thing waves across the screen screaming for action and detail on uses.. love tool reviews where it’s the look and functionality what matters.. no way could you possibly have any pros and cons to visualize in detail. Don’t forget to like and subscribe for more great content !!

Great video I learned a lot, thank you!

Roger Smith says:

No thanks. I do siding work and have for over 30 years. I use this style of tool but the Vice Grip kind which locks down and doesn't slip like the Wiss or Malco brands do. I have no interest whatsoever in this type of tool.

TOBAR Apprentice says:

So….. I “need” this tool…… but you haven’t taken the time to research what it’s called, what industry uses it. You seem like a nice guy, but a very amateur video.

The pinch welds on my mustang were folded by the previous owner using them as jack points, think this tool is worth trying to straighten them?

David Newman says:

you are looking for "home built" aircraft aka "experimental aircraft."

I bought a 6 inch harbor freight seamer years ago for making ducts and vents for my racecar. I have two for wider bends and it works pretty well.
