    Brand new to the H.A.M.B. I found the beadrolling thread from the beadrolling group on Facebook. Some of my work. 20201208_094728.jpeg 20201212_075841.jpeg 20191212_092238.jpeg

    I'm new to this bead rolling. I got mine to do floor panels; but the other day I tried to do some art stuff. Is there some instructcnals available some where? Or do I just keep practicing till I figure it out?

    Jamey Jordan has a couple of DVDs out that are excellent beginning instruction. YouTube has some videos also but, nothing beats seat time with a beadroller.

  7. A29A8AD1-43C5-454E-8FCC-DF4B64A7EFA5.jpeg Getting ready to beadroll a headliner for my sleeper for my COE . This was a sample of what will be in the center I did on a scrap of 18ga . The center will have a light the same size as the circle . The headliner will be done with 3003 Al. .063 h 14 .

    Hey Guys, I know this isnt an artsy pic but can anyone tell me what the hell went wrong here ? I wanted to put a nice bell shaped flair on the end of this 4"aluminum tubing. I figured I would put the stop at the edge of the roller gently zip around with multiple passes increasing pressure and I was golden . Nope.... it distorted the tube. it's 16 ga so I know its thick. Why didn't this work ??

    I think you were trying to get more than the die was designed for, for one thing. You, for sure, overtightened it. A spoiler die would maybe do this.

    I used a spoiler die. As far as overtightening it, I would agree however because of material thickness, it was the only way to get it to move! I DID start gently and gradually tightened it. Probably, the answer lies in the thickness! Thanks for responding !

    This is the first bomber seat I have ever made. I never did pleats before, never did solid rivets before either. I don't have a brake or a sheer. This is about as close to handmade as you can probably get. It's not done but it is for now. 20210316_063548.jpeg 20210315_090319.jpeg 20210316_063535.jpeg 20210314_090902.jpeg 20210314_160542.jpeg
