Shrinker/Stretcher.

Post by RewT » 23 Nov 2016, 21:25

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 metal 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.

I had them mounted on a foot operated stand, but it took up to much room, and I never really liked it. I still have the stand upstairs and I can remount them in about 5mins. They are now mounted on a angle iron stand I made and it works great.

Getting a good deal is no reason to accept sub-par work, since making it right costs more later.
