This Elite bench vise bead roller from Eastwood is an affordable way to bend and crease metal panels in a solo shop. Our 8-inch Crank Bead Roller forms strengthening ribs and channels in steel, stainless and aluminum sheets. It’s also a great method for creating flanges and curves or shaping edges. Since the tool is secured by your vise (sold separately), you’ll have one hand free to turn the four-spoke crank and the other to guide the metal. Add the Bead Roller Drive System to transform it into a motorized roller.
Each compact manual bead roller comes with a 3/8-inch bead die set and offset die set, which are the most common for automotive projects. Other forming dies and accessories are available separately. It reaches to the center of any panel up to 16 inches for making floor pans and patch panels or reinforcing existing parts. The Eastwood Garage is full of helpful videos and articles about how to use your bead roller. It has a one-year warrant and no-hassle returns so you can Do the Job Right.
With the 4-spoke crank handle and the smaller size of this heavy-duty bead roller, it only takes one person to easily operate and form panels. The unit attaches to a bench vise which holds it fast as you work. And it is still big enough to make small floor pans and other commonly fabricated parts without any outside help needed. The roller can handle 20 gauge stainless steel, 18 gauge mild steel and 16 gauge aluminum, which covers what is used in most vintage and modern vehicle panels.
This bead roller includes the popular 3/8-inch Bead Die Set and Offset Die Set that you will need in most of your fabricating projects. These are the two most common sets that are used for auto restoration and bodywork. With the industry-standard 22mm shafts you will be able to use most other die sets available like the optional Eastwood Bead Roller Metal Fabrication Forming Dies. Switching dies is simple and you can be confident they will make strong, reliable beads.
The Eastwood Elite 8-Inch Heavy-Duty Bead Roller is one of the only manual bead rollers on the market that enables you to produce strengthening ribs in panels, shape edges and form intricate designs in any panel by yourself. You can also create channels and flanges with the offset flange dies that are included. The gear-driven design delivers maximum forming power and leverage while requiring minimal handle force for the greatest accuracy. The 8-inch throat depth provides the ability to reach the center of a 16-inch panel, and you can add larger panels as well if you're creating curves towards the edges.
