Lancaster Shrinker - Stretcher Lancaster Shrinker-Stretcher Machines

Lancaster has been the industry standard since 1939. In-the-shop or on-the-job, a Porto-metal Former, better known as a “Lancaster”, makes the specialty angle you need - and it does it in minutes over the more time-consuming hand methods which result in a much lower cost per hour to you. A metal former can be used on the work bench or in a vise to make inside angles, outside angles, straight bends, even circles - More Info -

Modified Lancaster Jaws Modified Jaws

We have modified the shrinking and stretching jaws for the Lancaster to leave only sandpaper-like marks. No more deep lines! Brand new jaws are stippled with a carbide welding process to leave marks that nearly equal 180 grit sandpaper grains, eliminating stress risers and potential cracks from your nice parts. In this photo, our new jaws are on the top and the standard jaws are on the bottom. - More Info -
