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.
2 jaws (shrinker/stretcher), 1 housing, 1 handle, and instructions
51437 Shrinker/Stretcher Jaw Set (The original-equipment jaws are of hardened steel to provide years of normal use, but if you work with stainless or a lot of carbon steel, the jaws will tend to wear out and replacement will be necessary.)
Use appropriate eye and hand protection when handling sheet aluminum or steel.
