Restoration enthusiasts are always dealing with damage caused by time. Rust and corrosion caused by weather and the elements take their toll on projects. And as time goes by, finding replacement parts gets more difficult.
That's why more DIYers are equipping their shops with metal working tools such as bead rollers. A project may call for new tube ends, firewalls, floor panels or even new outer panels, and crafting them yourself may be the most practical, affordable option.
At Eastwood, we have made metal forming bead rollers part of our inventory of more than 4,000 professional quality auto body tools. We carry manual and power versions of these versatile tools in several sizes, as well as a variety of dies for different shapes and accessories that customize their use even more. All of them come with our 100 percent customer satisfaction guarantee.
Bead Rollers for Forming Metal
When fabricating your own parts, you need them to be just as strong as the original, if not stronger. A bead roller is an excellent way to add this strength to sheet metal and to form the right design for various pieces. If you do a lot of restoration or repair work, Eastwood bead rollers will save you money compared to hunting down rare parts or hiring someone else to make them. The metal formers you see here can be used to create radiators, ducts, fuel lines, dashboards and many other OEM or custom parts.
Sheet Metal Strength
We know that people have different preferences and needs for metal working. That's why the Eastwood R&D team has developed several sheet metal bead roller options for various parts. Our manual bead rollers come in small and large sizes to mount on a workbench, vise or stand. For some extra power and more control over your creations, try an electric bead roller that comes with a stand and foot pedal control. There are also tube bead rollers for creating lines and cylinders. Each model can be used on steel, aluminum, stainless steel, copper and other common metals.
Parts & Accessories
Precision custom metal work is much easier when you have the right tools to get you started. We have many bead roller accessories to do more than what's possible with freehand methods. Metal forming dies will help you create deep channels, flanges and style lines in different sizes. With a bead roller fence, you'll have a guide for perfectly straight lines or offsets. Special kits will help you make steps, raised beads and other common automotive metal shapes.
