OVER­VIEW

A must for any home garage or work­shop, this JEGS tool was de­signed for use with 16-gauge alu­minum, 18-gauge mild steel, and 20-gauge stain­less steel. JEGS’ new Metal Shrinker and Stretcher is a handy tool used for metal form­ing. From cre­at­ing cus­tom curves to shaped metal straps, this tool can trim and cre­ate flanges for auto body re­pair and gen­eral sheet­metal work.

With this ver­sa­tile tool, long com­pound-curved metal pieces can be formed out of a sin­gle strip of metal with­out hav­ing mul­ti­ple splice points. Op­er­a­tion con­sists of in­sert­ing a piece of metal in ei­ther the shrinker or stretcher jaws and pulling down on the han­dle to com­press or ex­pand the metal at var­i­ous lo­ca­tions along the length of the met­al­work piece, cre­at­ing the bend or shape you de­sire.
