Eastwood Shrinker/Stretcher Combo Set-Two BodiesTwo Jaws is rated 4.6957 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fine for the $$ 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad for the hobbyist 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!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my new favourite toys 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC!!! Wouldn't work without one! This Combo Kit is one of the BEST tool-sets I own...and I own a LOT of tools. As an avid Street Rodder and overall Hot Rodder & Blue Oval MadMan this toolset is going to save countless hours on my current project...a 1956 Ford F100 pickup truck. I purchased my Effie with the entire original sheet metal AND hard trim "mostly intact" and I am going to do my best to save everything I can for this build! The Eastwood Shrinker/Stretcher Combo Set I purchased, # 51088, is VERY versatile and portable so it travels well and works on everything I need from fenders to small trim pieces as well as patch panels...the possibilities are just endless! I can move the bodies from my workbench to my shop-vice or to my welding table on wheels, where ever I need it. Thanks again Eastwood for an awesome product!
