This is a bench mountable shrinking tool (although i usually mounted it in the vice).
The tool is an idea addition to any workshop doing vehicle body resto or repairs.
the blue shrinker in the picture is just to illustrate the work you can do with this tool, the red one is the one for sale. the shrinker i have is not one of the cheaper versions currently on sale on ebay, it is an original one from frosts.
Since closing my business i have lost the handle, it is just a round bar so i have added on to the listing, it works fine.
here is the spec as provided on the frost site where these are sold.
the jaws are in good condition, the item is in used condition but has been well looked after.
Without a doubt one of the most versatile sheet metal working tools you could hope to find. The Shrinker will quickly and easily pull shape into either steel up to 1.2mm [18g] or aluminium up to 2mm [14g]. Use it to fabricate repair panels anywhere on your car but especially those awkward areas around headlights, around the edges of window frames, door edges, rain channels, wheel arch rims etc. With the Shrinker you don’t need to cut-and-weld in order to create curves in angled sections - simply shrink or stretch the metal into smooth even curvatures in a fraction of the time. Produces radii as small as 76mm [3inch]. Body has two 3/8 UNC threaded holes for bench mounting or bolt it to a piece of heavy angle iron for quick mounting in your vice
please feel free to ask questions and look at my other listings.
PLEASE NOTE THE ITEM IS HEAVY!!
reduced postage for multiple purchases.
you can pick up if thats easier for you, although you are bidding to buy not just to view, so any sales must be paid for prior to collection

just to clarify, this is a shrinking tool, the streaching jaws can be bought separately.
ALSO THIS IS AN ORIGINAL FROST ONE, NOT ONE OF THE CHEAPER VERSIONS CURRENTLY AVALIABLE. REPLACEMENT JAWS ARE AVALIABLE FOR THIS MODEL VIA FROSTS IF YOU EVEN NEEDED THEM
