    First roller I purchased was beat up pretty bad, every zert fitting broke-off, two thirds of the dies would not fir the shaft, and tightening the shaft pillar blocks locked the the shaft from turning. I complained and they picked it up for return at no charge and sent me a new one..Great Service!
    Next unit: tightening the pillar blocks do not lock the shafts, Had to realign the shafts and gears, but the Worst was the zerts...they are brass and were all loose and when I went to grease the shafts they still break-off. I had to replace them with steel zerts. I still have to file the chamfers on the dies to get them to slide on easy.
    I was disappointed that the instructions were not more in depth. they are very unclear as to setup and the use of the dies. The few pieces I have rolled took about 3 passes to complete. If you do to much at once the plate bends and pushes the top die away from the plate changing the metal shape...NOT good! but I worked around that issue.
    This roller at least NEEDS 3 updates;
    1. Add a wheel the the depth screw(at least 3" diameter)
    2. Add a spring to the upper block so it automatically releases/raises the upper die when the pillar nut is loosened.
    3. Add a handle to the upper pillar block nut to make iut easier to loosen/tighten.
    For the money this roller is usable/workable. Just plan on some modifications and taking it slow.
    Not top quality but usable (Posted on 3/10/14)

    The first item i have been disappointed with from Eastwood. the frame flexes pretty badly when using on 18 through 20 gauge metal. bad enough that the work is messed up. and the dies i got with mine were pretty rough. I would have exchanged it but the shipping charge makes it not worth the exchange..

    Overall a nice piece, haven't really used it yet(-40 in my garage) but worked fine on a piece of scrap. But was missing the 1\2" die. Still waiting on response from Eastwood customer service. Sent 3 emails and still nothing.
    Very Pleased (Posted on 12/14/13)

    Product reasonably priced and questions about shipping were addressed. Bead roller was shipped and arrived promptly. Direct shipping using FedEx and prepayment of duties avoided use of a broker and their high fees.

    I haven't used it all that much, but from what I've done, it works really well. I plan on building a mounting bracket for it to attach to my bench, it's a little awkward in my vice. NIce tool!

    the machine work on the dies is poor at best the bead dies don't match and the finish on all of them
    is not very good. The dies you sold several years
    ago were a lot better quality.
