What Bead Roller is Best for Me?
Many people ask 'What bead roller do I need"? The answer depends on what you are building. Most people can form most of their projects with a standard 19" manual hand-crank bead roller because it can still form into the center of a 38" panel. The only drawback is that you will almost always need someone to help you because one person needs to crank the handle while the other moves the metal through the dies.
A larger manual hand-crank machine like the Elite 27" is great because you can form into the center of larger panels, allowing you to form larger shapes with a single piece of metal.
A motorized bead roller is great because you can often for metal by yourself, although when forming large pieces, it's still helpful to have someone helping to hold them sheet of metal.
We also offer small units for people who are only forming small pieces or just want to try using a bead roller. We also offer a wide selection of accessories that help performance and increase the abilities of these machines. You can get a table to help support the sheet metal, a motor for a hand-crank machine to allow you to use it by yourself, or all types of additional dies to make a huge amount of shapes besides the standard beads and offsets.
24" and 36" motorized bead rollers are a great option especially when working alone.
