BRANDON SCHMITZ was the Virtual Tech Expo (VTE) winner for the A-1 Tool Design Contest with his entry, the Hercules Tool!
The Hercules is 1/2” in diameter and 26” in length. It’s made of high quality stainless steel.
“The design I’m submitting is a tool that I use every single day. About 4 years ago I created this tool because I needed a large slow bend that was very stout. It is made with stainless but seems to be hardened. I use this tool on fenders, quarter panels, bedside dents that are above and below the tail light. I use it on most motorcycle tanks as well. I drilled and tapped the end to accept all of my tips. I have yet to see this tool in this shape being sold anywhere. It may look simple, because it is, but I can push a lot of metal with great control.”
