Hi yona and curt , they work awesome when you get used to them. I have used my friends shrinker and stretcher when i need to, would be a real good purchase if you work with alot of sheetmetal all the time. :D

I have had a set for 30 odd years...with these, a modified HF beadroller, and a home-made break, I can make replacement raingutter for any old car made....do a lot of trucks....am having a friend to machine me a deep-throat body from 3"' steel..... The sticky i did on another forum to show how I can make a fender out of flat strips of sheetmetal....
