Without a doubt one of the most versatile sheet metal working tools you could hope to find.
The Shrinker / Stretcher will quickly and easily pull shape into either steel up to 1.2mm [18g] or aluminium up to 2mm [14g].
Use it to fabricate repair panels anywhere on your car but especially those awkward areas around headlights, around the edges of window frames, door edges, rain channels, wheel arch rims etc.
With the Shrinker/Stretcher you don't need to cut-and-weld in order to create curves in angled sections - simply shrink or stretch the metal into smooth even curvatures in a fraction of the time.
Produces radii as small as 76mm [3inch]. Body has two 3/8 UNC threaded holes for bench mounting or bolt it to a piece of heavy angle iron for quick mounting in your vice.
Set includes one body, one handle, and two jaws. Complete with instructions.

- Rather poor quality, not very effective and hard workReview by Andrew
The handle attachement is very poor. It is a sloppy fit in the socket and the socket screw used to retain it is awkwardly placed in the underside of the hinge area. In operation the handle wobbles in the socket and can work loose and come out.
I have not tried to use the shretcher yet. There is no brand name on this item. I suspect it is a cheap copy of an Eastwood machine. I now wish I had bought an Eastwood or Lazze machine. Using the machine, I think I will still have to use cut and weld to get the result I want. (Posted on 26/09/2014)
