Eastwood Shrinker/Stretcher Combo Set-Two BodiesTwo Jaws is rated 4.6957 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool I got the stretcher/shrinker combo for some metal work on my car project. Theses things are great, I suppose you could form lips and edges with a hammer and a buck, but for someone less skilled with a hammer (like myself) these are pretty amazing. If you stick to think metals (as stated in the description), you will be very happy with the results. I'd highly recommend this combo set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have tools. This set has made sheet metal repairs so much easier. I restore classic cars and as you all know they can be rotted out in certain areas. I purchased this set to shape sheet metal around the back window and the windsheild openings, I was pleasently suprised how will these tools worked. I would reccomend these tool to anyone needing to form sheet metal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Combo 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BANG FOR THE BUCK I BOUGHT THE EASTWOOD SHRINKER/STRETCHER FOR SOME HOT ROD & CHOPPER PANEL FABRICATION AND IT DID BETTER THAN I IMAGINED! WORKS PERFECT ON MILD STEEL AND ALMOST AS GOOD ON ALUMINUM, THE STRETCHER WILL TEAR 20 GA ALUMINUM IF YOUR NOT CAREFUL. WOULD DEFINATELY RECOMEND TO ANYONE!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Units These are good units for the price. They are not the best out there, but they will definitely get you working sheet metal. I would recommend taking the jaws out and polishing the tool marks out of the back sides. It makes them work a whole lot easier and more effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, great tool I do not have a lot of body work experience, but after 10 min of practice I was able to make replacement patch panels for the lower rear sections of the front fenders on my 50 Ford panel. The pieces where as good as any you could buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value 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:-).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shrinker/Stretcher Review 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good buy 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Waiting. I've basically "played" with these for now; As I'm a "shaded tree" mechanic and snow is up to my knees, I can't use them as I would like. But they seem to work just fine for when I do get to use them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to any tool box 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shrinker/Stretcher The Stretcher works fine, but the Skrinker doesn't work very good. We've tried the skrinker several times and it just doesn't perform.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product 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.
