to my understanding, the ones with no deep throat will only do edges but there's a lot you can do with them in any case. With the deep throat one you can make chopper fenders and gas tanks w/ an e wheel and deep throat shrinker. To give you an idea...with a deep throat one you can make a perfect bowl in minutes without hammers. Try that with a hammer and it takes forever and make not be perfect. I've never done it but I've seen exactly how it's done and it appears really simple...Shrink more at the edges and lighter as you go in, blah blah blah. I wouldn't usually comment on something I haven't done but it looks really easy. I can tell any shrinker n stretcher is handy and there's so many times I could have used one but will wait to get a deep throat one with more options.
