Hi Jay,

Thanks for taking the time to make such a nice post, complete with clear pictures and tutorial.
Your work looks real good. I make and/or customize a lot of my own tools and machinery, too- a "habit" I picked up from my father.

What caught my eye, though, was the cool hand-wheel you made for your bead roller. There's nothing like home-made, right?

Keep up the good work and good luck with school.

Happy New Year to everyone.
