Eastwood Fender Roller Tool

    Eastwood Fender Roller Tool

    Product Review (submitted on February 13, 2013):

    I have an old Eastwood fender roller that I bought about 6-7 years ago and it has worked great on all of my cars. It was starting to show it's age so I bought another one about 6-8 months ago. The first car I used it on, the threads got stripped on the tool. I called it and it took a very long time go get through with someone (a few days of calls and no returned messages) but they finally said send it in and they will replace or repair it.

    In the meantime I bought a new one because I needed it. When I got that new one, the same thing - it stripped. I got the replacement and it also stripped!!! So three straight rollers were bad. I looked online and it looks like a lot of people are having the same issue.

    I called into Eastwood and have sent emails from their website with no response. They send me to the technical support department when I call but they never answer and never return their calls.

    I ended up having to make my own parts for the roller just to get it working. I think they're using some low grade mild steel from China on the threads now instead of hardened steel and that's what is causing it to fail.

    I would say be careful about purchasing one. Until an alternative comes out, this is the only option. But it's not a good one til they figure this out.
