    Slide Hammer Safety Modification

    Hi Everybody,
    I have a Harbor Freight Stud Welder that came with a slide hammer, for pulling out dents.
    it works pretty good, but the last time I used it, I smashed the bottom of my hand between the slide weight, and the handle.
    Hurt like the dickens! Here’s how I fixed it, so that it won’t happen again.
    Thanks for looking! Tony B
