    I got this last Friday but just got a chance to work with it today. Once you get the hang of it it works real smooth. Works nice for repairing rusted wheel openings.

    I've only used these a couple times so far, and they work fine. Get on Youtube and view Lazze metal shaping for a great tip on how to set up the jaws on the shrinker.

    One problem, Eastwood should also at least include the mounting bolts for each unit... I wish Eastwood would bring the price to realistic levels for the deep-throat shrinker!!

    i tried the shrinker/stretcher at a friends house about 5 months ago, i seen it online a million times and in video's, but after i tried it i never thought it would be so easy to use, i picked mine up about a week ago, and i've already mastered it, only took about 20 minutes to be a pro at it, i would love to get a proper stand for it, maybe some type of quick disconnect for it so i could easily and quickly change between shrinker and stretcher but i'll have to wait till the perfect one is available!

    I've used these a couple of times now and am happy with them - the bodies are heavy cast iron and everything else is heavier duty than I expected. Shrinks and stretches metal faster than I thought it would.

    I purchased this combo to work on aircraft aluminum. Just used the shrinker to make some end caps for a fuel tank. Tool preformed well and really quite powerful, had to stretch where I over did the shrinking:-).

    A good price for a quality product, fantastic to have the possibility to order from Scandinavia and have it shipped for less money that I could by it for in my own country.

    The shrinker and strecther worked very well. I was able to make lower lips for my inner wheelhouses on my 63 Nova, close to what the factory had. Highly recommended
