This wiki has been updated 9 times since it was first published in August of 2019. Hammer and dolly sets come with shaped metal pieces that can be used to form materials by serving as a curved surface to strike. These kits usually include several different styles of anvil and hammer, to provide users with the flexibility to fabricate metal as required. Our list takes into account the price, the ease of use, and the quality of the components. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

August 22, 2019:

Forming sheet metal or working out deformities is a labor-intensive process, particularly when what you're working on is still attached to a car. The difficulty is compounded by the double-layered doors found in most modern cars which impede access. Hammer and dolly sets like the Gearwrench 82302 and the Martin 647KFG provide the tools necessary for successful body work. The dollies included in these sets are well-ground and the edges have been nicely chamfered.

The primary reason I ranked the Gearwrench higher than the Martin simply comes down to the hickory handle vs the fiberglass handle. Fiberglass has a tendency to break off, particularly when the fiberglass does not go all the way through the head (often, they are merely glued superficially). With that said, Martin makes good tools, and their handles are probably reasonably robust. You don't often have to swing body hammers very hard, but at those times that you do, the hickory inspires greater confidence than the fiberglass.

Auto body repair can be dangerous and so proper safety precautions should be taken to avoid personal injury or damage to property.
