Beading Machine for workshop and construction site. Bead rollers are one of the versatile metal working tools ever produced. These equipment are used for strengthening or shaping metal sheets, and fabricating beads. These metal beads are used for decorative purposes and in HVAC equipment.

Beading machines are one of the most versatile tools around, and are ideal for doing edging and detail work on sheetmetal panels. They are known by many names—bead rollers, beading machines, bench machines, rotary machines, Jennies, and swaging machines—but they all have one distinguishing feature: a pair of round dies that are used to roll distinct shapes into sheetmetal panels.

Having a machine powered by an electric motor offers some important benefits. It lessens the effort of hand cranking the machine, but more importantly, it allows you to keep both hands on the work, which is extremely important for delicate work.

You’ll see a few types of unusual tooling in this article, such as a simple fixture that allows you to roll rings from tubing or sheetmetal shapes. While function drives many of the applications of the beading machine, very often you can incorporate a distinctive design element in the work you do, and a few free-thinking individuals are doing amazing artwork with these versatile machines. /span>key piece of equipment in many street rod shops, and I’m amazed at the ways clever builders develop new designs of bead-rolled patterns, and their discovery of new processes and tooling.
