    I just wondering about any other techniques I could use to get the bead taller on inside of pipe to say 1/8 opposed to the 1/16 I'm stuck with right now, the reason I'm conceded is because I'm doing a test soon where 4 coupons are cut out and bent 180 deg. Root face 2 of each. Sometimes I'm getting slight undercut on my root bends, thus the question about taller wider beads

    well then if you have undercut I suggest that you should hold a little longer on the corners, there fore the slower speed along with just a whisker of a drag might help. Are there not any limitations on the root rein? Sometimes to much is unexeptable
