My son bought the smaller bead roller and modified it with a fast electric motor to run elect wire thru he has his crew save to smash insulation for recycling. Now I have a lot of duplicate dies. I will have to decide what contours to make. I tried one set and they were harder steel than I expected from Harbor Freight.
I wish I read that article it sounds better than mine,Funny thing is I have a winch and was going to use it but didnt have all the parts I was going to need ,Wait till you see this monstrosity you'll laugh your hoo hoo off ,but it works great ,no reverse though,But its got a clutch. I'll get a pic tomorrow,should be good for a laugh or two......I'm on the lookout for a small lathe just for making dies ,theres some interesting attachments for the E wheel you guys should look into,a Tipping wheel for folding lips,a roller skate wheel for an anvil and a gokart slick for the top wheel.....

It might depend a bit on your wheeling style as to whether it would be in the way. Could be a visibility problem as well. But to my way of thinking it would certainly be worth a try. It wouldn't be a very expensive experiment. I would, however, recommend always wearing leather gloves if you go that route. I can imagine catching a nail or whole thumb with that guard...which could also be a bit painful.

I guess maybe the trick is just stay focused..Don't try to watch Gearz or Car Crazy while wheeling. I tend to procrastinate a lot so will probably either have flat thumbs or get used to the wheel before I get the guard put together.
Thanks for the reply.

Got a new HF flyer today..the E-wheel is $199. Take a 20% off coupon and it's only $160. I think that would be a bargain for anyone thinking about one.
I hope this is not considered advertising. I don't own HF or work there.
