Eastwood Metal Shrinker/Stretcher Combo Set.The Eastwood Shrinker/Stretcher Metal-Shaping Combo lets you easily fabricate gentle radius bends and contours in steel, aluminum, stainless or copper. Compound 45:1 leverage allows effortless forming without making relief cuts, heating, or hammer-forming.
Eastwood's Shrinker/Stretcher Metal-Shaping Combo reproduces wheel wells, dog legs, trunk corners, almost any metal fabrication requiring a combination curve and angle. Use the shrinker to contract metal for inside curves; use the stretcher to expand 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. Comes assembled and pre-drilled for bench mounting. Clamps in your vice or mounts on your bench or pedestal stand.

By Bill Tumas: We have here is a Eastwood Shrinker Stretcher. It does exactly that. It shrinks or stretches metal. Here you have a shrink to make a nice inside curve, here you have a stretch to make a nice outside curve. You can make wheelhouse edges, anything you can think of, any kind of different compound curves. It's a very useful tool if you're doing any kind of metal fabrication. A simple tool, very cost-effective, make a lot of your own things that you would spend a lot of money buying.
