    mine-the bottom roller flexed when i first made it but added an extra 25x50mm box section to lower part.just use it mounted in vise as have limited workshop space.originally had a crank handle but that was a pain in the ass so changed to an old steering wheel,much easier to use.made various wheels including one to cut/form louvres.

    Here is my friend Al's interpretation of the Harbour Freight basic bead roller.
    He built it in a day or so of puttering around with some metal that he and I gathered. Note the small wheels on the bottom. They sit above the floor, just tip the thing back and roll it around like a furniture dolly. Works great!
    Now we have to get down to some serious bead rolling which will help get all those projects that Al and I have moving towards completion. What did you say, you know where there is another project for sale....wait, I'll get my coat.
