3 MAKE JEGS
Sheetmetal Shrinker and Stretcher
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.
