Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality Use the tool to make beads in metal and it worked with out any problems. Bead was uniformed and easy to make. Worked as advertised. Just make sure it is held tightly in vice. Used 5" vice with no issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Functions as expected I mated the power feed unit to my Woodward Super bead roller. (.680 thick) It required spacing the power feed away from the bead roller .713 I arrived at this number by using a nut that is .625 thick and a washer measuring .088. The two shafts lined up pretty good by eye. Seems a little pricey and I know some guys build their own but, a week after ordering it, I'm using my power feed bead roller which cost me under $600 for both the power feed and a fairly good bead roller. I can't take the money with me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transforms the basic bead roller! This literally changed everything about the bead roller. First, many times I am alone and trying to work the piece, crank the handle, adjust, work, repeat... etc. With the motor, both hands are free, because of a constant speed, my curves and turns are more fluid and cleaners

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eastwood Bead Roller Drive I've been waiting for this ever since I bought my Eastwood bead roller! Easy to set up and use. My only suggestions are to make the foot control a variable speed controller and for Eastwood to offer a stand for the bead roller so I can get it away from the bench vise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome addition to my Bead Roller Have been wanting this addition to my bead roller ever since I bought it. This is Great and affordable and easy to set up. Now I'm able to build a ton of parts for my 35 by myself. Thank You Eastwood for developing this fantastic addition to my tiny shop!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great control of the panel speed I was thinking of making a power unit for my bead roller then I stumbled across this unit. I have an "off brand" roller and this thing works just fine. I had to get alternative bolts since those provided did not match the blocks on my machine - no big deal. You can't beat the adaptability of the speed and the control you gain and one person use over a non-powered unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 18'' bead roller Excellent bead roller for the price.Only bead roller I found online that included offset dies, which i needed to build a tailgate for a 65 F-100 .Super fast shipping. have my eye on some dimple dies , will be buying from Eastwood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 20 years old HF bead roller came back from the This is no secret using a manual bead roller is not a one man operation. This driver made my life so much better this is how every bead roller should be outfitted. Installation was a breeze even with all the upgrades that got added over the years. lining up the shaft and the motor is key here but once that is done right the bead roller will perform magic with ease at any speed you choose to run. THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST UPGRADE EVER DONE TO MY OLD HF BEAD ROLLER! I'm really happy and it did not break the bank compare to other options

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eastwood Bead Roller Purchased bead roller and tweaked it by watching u-tube videos also made a nice stand with a 22" Disc for the base a 4 " pipe for the post and fabricated a bracket to mount the bead roller it is very sturdy gave it a coat paint . turned out solid .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well Easy to attach to bead roller and was working on metal in about 10 min. Now I need to stiffen up the bead roller itself. It has a lot of flex.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Buy it you will not regret it Finally after years of trying to retrofit some sort of motor to my modified (beefed up manual 18") roller I pulled the trigger on this and haven't looked back yet. The drive is so smooth and consistent makes rolling a breeze. Would recommend to anyone on the fence it's worth it's weight in your arsenal. Get it on sale and it sweetens the deal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Eastwood Bead Roller Power Electric Drive System I had considered building one, however the Eastwood unit looked compact and an easy retrofit. The big concern I had was the power of the motor (1/6hp or 1.65 amp). Others I had seen were 1/3 to 1/2hp. I had the chance to try this unit in the store and it operate well with the material that was supplied for the demo. The mounting bracket offers a lot of flexibility for fit-up to other bead rollers. I just had to drill and tap holes on my bead roller then a minor bit of machining to bore to size (I wanted a tight fit) to get the coupling to fit my bead roller drive shaft (a drill of the correct size would have worked just as well). I tried it out on variouse thicknesses. On a 16ga sheet of steel (that I'm using for a firewal, and with the rollers tight for heavy embossing. Had no issues. The 1/6hp motor and 75:1 gear reduction provide ample torque. Also the 75:1 gear reduction allows you to operate a really low speed with no chatter. Only minor concern was the foot pedel. It's a solid piece, however it is small, and with my size 12 work boots on, you have to look where you put your foot. Having said that, for money (and even double the price), I doubt you will find a better unit, compact size, capacity, ease of adjustment and installation (even retro fits. Highly recommended. As an aside, I'm planning on purchasing another unit to use as a variable speed turn-table for welding circular pieces.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DYI Bead Roller I have had pretty results using this bead roller though it is difficult to get good results without a second person to help. Also I found that mounting it in vice very time I needed to use was a pain. I called Eastwood to see if they sold a stand for this bead roller. They do not but there is a stand for a motorized bead roller you can but. It is part number 20622B and Eastwood customer service can tell how to order this stand. A simple adapter plate with four drilled through holes is all the is needed to mount the 18 inch bead roller head to this stand. I also replaced the depth screw with a longer M10-1.5 x 63L screw with handle from McMaster Carr.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Also 20 year old harbor freight roller I just got this for my birthday, the wife loves me! I had to get new bolts and spacers mine was larger than the ones that came with it but it works great. Now to fix the flex I didn't have turning slowly with my steering wheel (to slow to see) Time to save rusty iron

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bead roller for the price Have been using this for making sheet metal body patches, works great, just a little tough to use by yourself at times with a larger sheet of metal.

Will this fit the 21327 bead roller also or no

Asked by: Steve
This motor will also fit our elite 27 inch bead roller. (21327)

Do you offer a stand for it? Also what size bolts go in the 2 holes on the bottom?

Asked by: Jamie21
We do not have a stand for this item> We recommend using an 8" bench vise or larger such as: https://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-8-in-bench-vise.html. You would want to use 12mm sized bolts for this application.

Do all your bead roller dies fit this bead roller

Asked by: JakeBack48
Almost all of them do. Any of our Bead roller dies which state they fit a 22mm shaft will fit fine.

I saw in the video that one guy was pushing the metal against a metal fence or guide while he was turning the handle. #1) Does this unit come with that fence? #2) If so, is it included in the price? #3) If not, what is the extra cost? Mike

is this the same as the Eastwood blue bead roller, and why only one off/set tipping die, what is the diameter of the shaft for the dies, have the gears been up graded Thanks russ

Asked by: russ
This is our updated version of the older blue bead roller. Now this unit includes a tool-less adjustment for pressure, 1 set of tipping dies, and three sets of bead dies. The diameter of the shaft has stayed the same at 22mm.
