The list of tools and shop equipment that I want in my new shop is as long as my arm, and I know I’ll not be able to get them all right away. But, when I do start acquiring some of them, you can rest assured that a bead roller will be on the list. It is amazing the things you can make with one, including some stuff you might not have thought about before. We’d love to be able to make bead rolled floor pans, or a custom dash, or wheel tubs if the need were to arise. And those are just a few things. I know there are jillions of things we could make using the bead roller and that’s why I think it would be a fun tool to have and to learn to use. Thankfully the guys at Eastwood have great videos on how to use their products on your latest project and that is why you need to check these two videos out below.
The premise behind one of these rollers, and how they manipulate the shape of metal, is really simple actually. There isn’t much to them. But even with very little going on, the results are impressive as hell. Just check them out below.
