    About Eastwood Shrinker/Stretcher Set

    Reproduce wheel wells, dog legs, trunk corners...almost any metal fabrication requiring a combination curve and angle. Shrinker contracts metal for inside curves; stretcher expands metal for outside curves.

    The hand-operated shrinker/stretcher press multiplies your pressure by a factor of 45, creating leverage to work on up to 18-gauge mild steel, 20-gauge stainless, and 16-gauge aluminum. Clamps in your vice or mounts on your bench or pedestal stand.
