    Great product. Only thing that would make it better would be to order a stand with it, but can clamp in the vise. 2 thumbs up.

    It took a little time to get the hang of using them but once you understand how they work you can make alot of different replacement sheetmetal parts that saves you time and money.

    I have a little experience constructing replacement sheetmetal panels and after a little practise found the tools perform better than I hoped. It has opened the way to making all kinds of replacement parts from wheel well lips to trunk lip filler pieces . The foot operated stand would be alot handier than the vise I now use.

    The standard for short throat shrinkers and stretchers.

    A little filing and sanding on the jaws helps them work even smoother.

    Although mounting an L shaped bracket in the bottom and then securing them in a bench vice works OK.

    A floor mounted stand with foot pedal allows you to use both hands to move and steady the work piece.

    The shrinker/stretcher combo is a decent tool for the price. I've used it to make some window channels as well as some other patch pieces for my project car and it has worked as advertised. Worth the money.
