4.0. MAGNETIC DENT REMOVAL
MAGNETIC DENT REMOVING AND BURNISHING
Dent removing and burnishing with magnet and ball is an ideal supplement to traditional methods when you have to remove
dents from conical and bent instrument parts. Its best application is in smoothing out dents in tubing from dia 20mm, as in
French horn, tenor, baritone, euphonium, tuba, saxophone.
Caution: You should not use these tools for jobs in the bell area and on larger straight surfaces - risk of bulges and streaks!
And you should not use it with barrel-shaped dent balls, only with perfectly round balls without hole.

MAGNETIC DENT BURNISHER


A really handy and practical dent burnishing tool with a strongset of magnets.
Two magnetic tools in one: the set of magnets has different magnetic
strength quick change from superstrong to less strong side.
Comes complete with exchangeable hardened and polished discs in different
shapes (flat and slightly rounded). The rounded disc makes it possible to use
the tool on the inside radius of bent tubing.
The discs also protect the magnet and prevent scratches.

-451- Magnetic Dent Burnisher, complete with 2 hardened and


polished discs and 8 pc. hardened steel balls dia 20-45mm
451
Nr. 451 is a must for each brass repair shop!

MAGNETIC DENT TOOL


Very strong magnet for eliminating dents. This magnetic tool is stronger
than our magnetic dent burnisher no 451 (+about 40%) and can be used for
thicker material.
Complete with 2 hardened and polished discs. We supply this tool with a
clamp: put the discs in this clamp and you can repolish them easily.

-452SM-40- magnetic dent tool, with 2 hardened and polished discs


(flat and slightly rounded) 452SM-40
with clamp (holder for repolishing the discs)
without balls!

Caution: The magnet in 452SM40 is even stronger so you must be even more careful!

EXPANDABLE DENT BALLS FOR TROMBONE SLIDES


VALVE SLIDES FOR TRUMPET - FRENCH HORN
This tool set is excellent at both removing dents from slides and expanding and rounding out loose or badly fitting
slides. It consists of oval-shaped expanders that are screwed on a rod. Each expandable ball (nos.147) can be
combined with each rod (no.146/1-3), which makes our expanders a very economical purchase and offers you the
option of adding to a basis set at any time you find it useful.
Our precision made, six-section expandable balls are expanded equally and smoothly by means of a long fine thread that
allows micrometer-type adjustment. They are of polished steel with hard chrome plating and do not scratch the tubing.
When removing dents the slide is moved back and forth over the ball, when widening slides you carefully expand the ball.
Apply lubricant during both operations. Tool can be hand-held or fixed in vise.
Top results are achieved if the expandable ball is only slightly less in diameter than the tubing. It is not advisable to use balls
which are more than 0.4 - 0.5mm smaller than the nominal inner diameter of the tubing.

CYLINDRICAL BOLTS (MANDRELS) FOR TROMBONE SLIDES
These chrome-vanadium bolts are used for straightening out and eliminating
dents in trombone slides. The appropriate bolt is screwed into an extension rod
that is supplied with the bolts. Available only in sets!

-157/1- cylindrical bolts, approx. 250mm long, set of 10 pieces:


13.3 13.4 13.6 13.7 14.2 14.3 14.8 14.9 15.2 15.3mm dia.,

with 3 extension rods, 11.5 13 and 14mm dia.

ROLLING DENT AND STRAIGHTENING TOOL FOR TROMBONE SLIDES


With this tool you can remove dents in trombone slides a lot more easily and quickly than
with a burnisher. Just insert a cylindrical bolt of appropriate size (nos. 157/1,2) into the
slide and move it back and forth between the two plastic rollers on the one side and the
hardened steel roller on the other side. Dont forget to rotate the slide! All three rollers are
adjustable, the steel roller puts pressure on the slide, the two plastic rollers guide it.
This tool is superior to similar tools with only two rollers because the slide is not bent as
inevitably will happen if you push the slide against the rollers by hand. With three rollers
pressure is only applied at a short section of the slide. Our tool can also be used to
straighten out trombone slides! Use three plastic rollers and no bolt inside the slide. 145

EXPANDABLE DENT BALLS FOR TROMBONE SLIDES AND


VALVE SLIDES FOR TRUMPET - FRENCH HORN
This tool set is excellent at both removing dents from slides and expanding and rounding out loose or badly fitting
slides. It consists of oval-shaped expanders that are screwed on a rod. Each expandable ball (nos. 147) can be combined with
each rod (no.146/1-3), which makes our expanders a very economical purchase and offers you the option of adding to a basis
set at any time you find it useful.
Our precision made, six-section expandable balls are expanded equally and smoothly by means of a long fine thread that
allows micrometer-type adjustment. They are of polished steel with hard chrome plating and do not scratch the tubing.
When removing dents the slide is moved back and forth over the ball, when widening slides you carefully expand the ball.
Apply lubricant during both operations. Tool can be hand-held or fixed in vise. Top results are achieved if the expandable
ball is only slightly less in diameter than the tubing.
It is not advisable to use balls which are more
than 0.4 - 0.5mm smaller than the nominal
inner diameter of the tubing.
