Gently add custom bends and contours to a variety of metals with our DIY shrinker and stretcher set. Unlike other combos that have a single body, this set has two separate bodies, jaws and handles — one for stretching and the other for shrinking. You’ll be able to get more done without constantly switching hardware around. Both tools arrive pre-assembled with drilled holes for mounting on your benchtop. You also can clamp the metal shrinker-stretcher combo in a bench vice or attach it to a pedestal stand.
Our automotive shrinker and stretcher do the precision bending you need for trunk corners, door jambs, wheel and window openings, floor pans and many other parts. The tools have compound 45:1 leverage which lets you form the metal as-is — no relief cuts or hammer pounding are needed! The stretcher housing is yellow and the shrinker housing is blue so you can easily tell them apart at a glance. Eastwood designs these DIY tools in-house and backs them with our lifetime expert tech support — call or email us seven days a week.

The Eastwood metal Shrinker Stretcher 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.

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
