The Shrinker and Stretcher are two capable tools in a very tiny package. Skilled metal shapers can form entire panels without touching them with a hammer once by properly utilizing these. With tiny movements in precise and strategic patterns, you can bend, mold and shape material having to only smooth it in the English Wheel once finished.
While hand-form is critical, it's important to learn how a Shrinker x Stretcher works so you can save time (and your arms) in shaping. In the next workshop in our Metal Shaping series, you'll be back at it in the co-op garage with Marlowe from Rusted Jalopy learning the ins and outs of these two awesome tools!
