Just getting started in metal forming or just looking for an inexpensive alternative to having your panels beaded by somebody else? The BR-18M-18 bead roller could just be the perfect solution. Made from plate steel the BR-18M-18 has an 457mm throat depth making it perfect for strengthening any type of panel such as roof, deck, and hoods. This bead roller is manually operated by a hand crank that drives both the bottom and top bead rolls. A depth of bead can be altered by a simple top roll adjustment.
Made to take years of abuse in any shop atmosphere, this bead rolling machine comes standard with a heavy duty stand. The BR-18M-18 also comes with a roll rack and six sets of the most common rolls required by metal forming enthusiasts; 1.6mm, 3.2mm, 6.4mm step dies and 6.4mm, 9.5mm, 12.7mm bead dies. For added longevity the drive shafts ride in quality bushings that can be periodically fed grease through grease fittings.
