  • Anyone use Machinery House Foot Operated Shrinker Stretcher - Oval Jaws

    Anyone use this style shrinker stretcher ?
    Its $520 AU$ which works out to a little over $400 US $
    plus I might have a way to get it shipped here for free

    Just interested how the included dies work on mild steel , they are Oval , most of the other ones are rectangular ,
    and also if you have used the dies for aluminum how have they worked out ?

    there might be a USA seller but I have not found them yet !

    I can use my friends Eckold , but he is 45minutes away !

    Or is there another set-up for around the same price that I should look at ? THANKS

        you never know who copies who , or if the chinese maker will just sell them to anyone ,

        they are on sale on Alibaba , just look at the frame and you will see a bunch of people selling them,

        its just if these "oval" jaws are any better then the regular style

        in GB they are sold by Metz at the same basic price as in OZ,

          We have one .... remember when we had to start the company with a limited budget we bought one of these.....
          and unfortunately needed quite a lot of modification to make it work nicely we are currently looking for the classic Eckold green HF80 or blue 100.

            but for about $550 AU$ or 400 UKP is there anything else to buy ?

            I would like to get a deep throat one for the few times I need it

            Eckolds are great just lots more $$$$$ and I will never use it that much ,

            ​​​​​​​Thanks for your thoughts

              You could save up for the Eckold jaws and make the rest.
