damnesia Thanks guys, I'm clear now. I saw John's use of a skateboard wheel for the bottom die, but missed the part about the tipping die. I was looking at Eastwood ( where I got the bead roller from ) and they have a set of metal shaping dies and it has 4 tipping dies:

Knife edge tipping die
3/8 in tipping die
1/2 in tipping die
Round tipping die

I'm guessing the one in use in the thread, and also the one I need, is the "Knife edge". I'll give a go at trying to make one for myself. The vbelt pulley is a great idea.

Thanks once again!

John long Pugsy pretty well summed it up. If you would like to see how I made mine from a 5 dollar v-belt pully and a 3 dollar skate board wheel, I posted the process earlier in this thread. This is the link to how I did mine.

My questions are about tipping dies for bead rollers. I see many different kinds but am having trouble finding what the different types are used for. John, which ones do you use? Also man those dies are pricey! I have a lathe and considered making my own, but that most likely wouldn't work out so great, since I've never used on Anyone know of an affordable source for these?

Thanks.
Any type of tipping die is used for putting a bend in a piece of metal.
You've seen so many kinds because you can make one out of pretty much anything that looks like it.
Keep the front of it dead flat if you can as the bending of the part comes from the tool itself and you lifting the metal at the same time.

Start turning on your lathe and you'll learn right quick. Watch Youtube to learn more.

If you want to buy, Harbor Freight in the USA or Princess Auto in Canada.

The most common inexpensive import is Harbor Freight. Eastwood also sell a kit whitch comes with several sets of dies. The bead roller is one of those things that have an unlimited number of modifications you can do. I made a set of tipping dies out of a V-belt pully and a skateboard wheel which I use a lot.

If you do a search for "bead roller modification" or "power bead roller," you will come up with some interesting material.

I would think the local Post Office would have them.
