Universal Design To Fit Other Bead Rollers

The drive motor fits any hand crank bead roller with a standard shaft size, which is 25mm at the crank handle. The shaft is usually smaller where the dies attach (often 22mm).

The 1/6-horsepower electric motor and three-position toggle switch replaces the hand crank. Use the infinite Speed Control dial to set the exact rate for your forming project. It comes with a footswitch to operate the drive system, leaving both hands free to control sheets and parts.

The Eastwood Universal Bead Roller Drive turns what once were two-man projects into a solo operation. It can form bends and channels in up to 18-gauge steel just like if you were using the original hand crank while running off ordinary household current. Installation takes less than 30 minutes. If you want to switch back to manual operation, that’s easy,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eastwood bead roller drive I finally talked myself into this drive unit after getting tired of struggling with a hand crank. The unit works well but my roller used 14mm bolts so I had to fabricobble different spacers and source different bolts. I did the Jere Kirkpatrick inspired adjustable top shaft and the slots in the mounting plate were long enough to work without modification.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from add a bead roller drive and table to older 19"' manual crank bead roller ordered the bead roller drive system , to put on my older manual roller. I had to make my own mounting bracket, which was fairly simple process, and also added the roller table. this makes using the bead roller so much easier and faster than the manual crank setup. For the money spent I would never recommend the manual roller alone. ben there done that

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best addition to my shop Best addition to my shop yet. Easy installation, easy to use no more hand cranking. Price was fair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best drive system I have not installed my bead roller drive system yet. But only did the reviews tell me this was the best drive system. I’ve seen other people home build LARGE 30” throat bead rollers and choose this drive system for its quality, ease of install and operation. Hand cranking bead roller is a two person job and it’s hard to get exactly the start and stop you want. A drive motor is the ONLY option for working as a one man set up. Eastwood never disappoints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great. I am somewhat of a DYIer and wholeheartedly a cheap a$$, I thought of does of ways to make this Everything from a 12v ATV wench to a CVT drill press. I love this thing, no more hand crank for me. The electrons do all the work for me. I have spent countless hours with the crank and loathed every second of it. All I have ever done up to the point was flanges and tank rolls, now I see bead-rolled as an art. The days of buying or dreaming about buying bead-rolled panels are gone… I just make them. Starting off with the bad: the motor does not make a healthy noise on startup and the pedal makes a nice audible click but all together feels cheap, I can see it can be easily replaced so I bought do that with a safety foot pedal. The good: is that the motor is torquey and it makes long bead-rolling sections easy and actually fun. After 2 hours the motor was not even warm. The great: I have done a lot of mods around my shop to take this 22mm coupler as input like my lathe bottom slide, a 4 jaw chuck to make welding turntable, and a height adjuster on my drill press.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DREAMS CAN COME TRUE Have been wanting to add a drive and this was the shot I needed to get it done. I felt the price was right considering trying to build one from scratch. It takes a little patience to get it done with aligning, reinforcing a HF roller building a stand etc. BUT IT IS WORTH IT!

Can this be mounted vertically

Asked by: MoMo
The motor system cannot be mounted vertical with respect to the bead roller, it must be inline as shown in the images, but I see no reason the entire bead roller and motor assembly could not be oriented vertically.
