SSF6" Floor Standing Dual Acting Shrinker Stretcher

6" Throat Depth

Foot operated floor standing dual acting shrinker stretcher combination for sheet metal forming.

Shrinker stretchers are without doubt one of the most versatile metal shaping tools you can buy and virtually indispensable in a body or fab shop. This metal shrinker / stretcher combination is great for making smooth professional shop quality radius bends in sheet metal without cutting, heating, or hammering the material. Reproduce just about anything with a curved edge. Great for creating trim flanges, door edges, channels, wheel arch rims in flat or right angled sections. It can also be used in conjunction with stretching tools such as an english wheel, planishing hammer or a simple mallet and sandbag for larger panels such as car wings, motorcycle fuel tanks, mudguards and anywhere a compound curve is required. The 6"  throat upper body allows for working into the middle of a large panel and comes with 2 quick release captive cartridges with oval hardened jaws (1 shrinker set, 1 stretcher set) which are changeable in seconds. The shrinking jaws are used to make internal curves or to pull down edges of a panel and the stretching jaws are used to make external curves or to raise the edges of a panel.

Where this model excels over most other shrinker stretchers is in the way its arms operate independently. On most other shrinkers only the top arm moves and the downwards action of the top jaw presses on the bottom jaws to move them inwards or outwards. On this model both the upper and lower arms move giving a lighter action and more accurate operation and feel. The oval jaws help prevent corner marking on tight radii panels and the captive design means they can be changed with 1 turn of a cap head bolt. Foot operation produces a massive increase in power over hand lever operation and leaves both hands free to manoeuvre the work piece.

Spare jaw cassettes are available upon request if required but if used correctly they should last years of service. A more course set of teeth are available for aluminium and require less cleaning if required although the standard sets will shrink or stretch aluminium with less marring.

  • Billet steel upper body
  • Hands free foot operation
  • 2 sets of jaws included
  • Dual action for improved feel
  • Oval jaws to prevent corner marking
  • Quick release captive jaw cassettes
