yeah it does flex quite a bit , altho I have gotten used to it an have gotten decent results making dupelicate parts , but I mostly use it to roll out dents in motorcycle fenders , theres no feeling thats better for me when I tell a guy I repaired his tins filler free an they are just like the factory intended them . I also do lead work to repair tanks that are damaged , but thats getting harder an harder to do these days finding the right lead is very hard anymore.
