Custom bead rolling....lotsa pic's

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Kiwi Kev, Nov 25, 2006.

  1. Dam...this is a great thread..I just bought a Eastwood bead roller off of the HAMB last week and just got it..I only have the 1/4" bead roll...looks like I will have to get some more dies and lots of scrap pieces...wondering what type of dies should I buy...Eastwood only offer 3 to 4 types..they have the flange rollers, the bead rollers and a shear roller. I bought the bead roller below..it's just a $300.00 unit...hell I got it for $60.00....

    I have a MB 24" bead roller and I am looking for dies like this to make a pleated door panel similar to what was shown a few pages back. I checked with Curtis and Trick tools and he is checking with MB but it looks like a tipping die with a #2 Hem roller bottom die as was posted. Does anyone know where I can buy something like this or are they custom made?

    use your tipping die on top, and a flat roller on the bottom, wrap it with electrical tape, 3-4 layers and you can get the same effect.

    Anyone looking for beadroller dies, or english wheel upper and lower wheels should be checking out Hoosier Profiles. Owner Joe Andrews has been on the Metalmeet.com site for years and his products are very well made.

    I bought Joe's embossing dies for my HF beadroller, but haven't tried them out yet, as my beadroller is out on loan to a friend that lives almost 7 hours away:)

    Cheers!

    Ok I need a bit of help. I contacted Joe about making a die like posted in the picture above. Of course he can make it but he need some dimensions.

    His question was "It looks as if the Die shown is around 30 degree Angle, The Radius on the Male Die looks to be around 3/32. Can you measure the Dies and get me some Solid Numbers?". Can anybody help me out here with some specs?

    thank you,
    Jason

    Had to roll damn near through this whole thread to find that picture! The V8 door panel for that little '29 that Zibo built is currently sitting in my living room! I have the car's doors apart doing some redo/cleanup/repairs for the new owner "endlessearth", and couldn't think of a better place to safely store and display it for a bit... Girlfriend thinks it's a bit weird, but she'll get over that too!

    How are you guys making clean points like the ends of these flames (picture stole frome anouther thread) What keeps the rolls from flattening the first line when the rolls form the second line?

    practice! some guys loosen the tension on the rolls as they get near the tips but I dont.

    With practice you'll find the sweet spot and know where to stop.

    Was that done with a bead roll or a step roll?
