Eastwood Bead Roller Kit is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as advertized Shipped on time, packeged well. After unpacking and setting up in vice I ran a piece of 16 gauge steel through it, the frame of the roller was twisting a little while rolling the 16, but it did it, just as advertised. I ran some beads on a sheet of 20 gauge steel, and tried a few diffrent die combinations, it worked great! For the money, you cannot beat this bead roller, works just fine for the home metal enthusiast. I plan on welding some supports and mounting to this roller and I'm sure it will handle the 16 gauge just fine after the modifications. The set up is not friendly and timely, but for the price verses the high end rollers out there, I have the time. Also, it really helps to have a second person to help crank the roller, its almost impossible to do this alone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great basic tool. Right after receiving my unit I realized I made a mistake. As a one man shop there was no way I could keep things straight and turn the handle at the same time. Also there were simple other add on's that I saw others do on U-tube to make this more workable. I found that Mittler Bros. has a motorized add on kit (Part 200-302) and I took the chance to see if it was compatible. So I purchased it and added it to my Eastwood Bead Roller with very little adaptation. You'll need to purchase a LoveJoy Coupling Hub 1/2 to 1-in with spider and a 3/4-in steel or aluminum plate. Pictures attached. The tension block won't move freely without a spring and without removing the paint under it so it will slide. I still haven't addressed the flexing of the fixture yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modified Bead Roller The hand crank works fine if there are two people. Unfortunately that isn't always the case here so I added a motor to mine. Of course this voids any warranty but it is so well built that I doubt warranty service would ever be required anyway. I slightly modified it by adding two strips of 3/16" thick 2" X 2" Angle steel, horizontally, top & bottom rear and another bottom front. Stand is 1/8" wall 1" X 1" square tube. Tray and chain guard is 18awg steel. The crank was replaced with a 1/2" variable speed, reversible drill motor. I chose this model because of the removable handles which provided three solid threaded holes for mounting. The handle was cut off and the switch reused for the foot pedal control. Obviously the switch wires were extended. The foot pedal is made from 1/4" steel plate on the base with a gate hinge welded to it which in turn presses on the trigger from the drill motor. The cover is simply more 18awg steel formed to fit. The yellow tab on top of the foot pedal is the forward / reverse control. The chain drive consists of a 10 tooth sprocket welded to a 1/2" bolt shank then inserted in the drill chuck. The top sprocket is a 60 tooth driven by a #60 chain. The RPM is variable 0-50 RPM forward or reverse. It works fine with 16awg mild steel. I haven't tested it with thicker material.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from About what I expected. Was already aware this brand was one of 3 that had flex issues. This one also had shaft lateral lock set screw issues. The dies also need a little work. After I welded some tubing to the frame and drilled a divot for a set screw,it seemed to work. Wasn't a one man job w/the crank but it does work. After my labor,material & need to purchase an ND Fab motor kit I wouldn't recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the best Out of the box I could hardly turn the handle, very stiff. After I honed the bushings out and reassembled the unit it worked ok. Noticed a quite a bit of flex in the upper arm, will probably weld some square tube to it to stiffen it up. For the money it's OK.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Roll on Purchased this bead roller and the additional set of dies. Found that it would require two people to operate which for me was not an option. Replaced the crank handle with a wheel, problem solved. The bolt that holds the arm down stripped out almost on the first or second run. Rethreaded the hole and spot-welded a nut on top to give more bite. Got to work with the new set up and it worked like a charm with crisp beads and nice bends. Could use a spring to lift the top arm when loose to make it easier to change the dies. For the price plus a little time it is a good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works wicked sweet. Hooked a sewing machine motor to it, and modified the foot switch to fwd-rev. Then made a large wheel for the roller tension and Zip bang boom she rocks hands free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good unit so far Received this the other day. it seems sturdy enough. Not sure whose idea those annoying 10mm square head bolts were though. Welded a VW clutch cable wingnut to the height adjuster bolt to make it easier to adjust. Like a user below I also felt the crank was too impractical. I had a beatup early 60's VW Bus steering wheel I modified and that works great. Now looking for an old sweing machine with treadle pedal to power this thing. With some tinkering it will be an excellent unit.
