  • Bead Roller, Modified HF

    Bought a HF Bead Roller a few months ago, and finally got around to beefing it up.

    If you know anything about these, they are just about worthless in the 'stock' have to consider it a bead roller kit.

    I used 3/8x2 flat stock, some scrap, and a 2" tube so I could fit it in my receiver.

    I did some test panels in 18 ga.

    Works fine. Now I need practice.

      I'd like to motorize it but probably won't. Unless I get a bunch of beadrolling work, which I don't see happening.
