I have their Bead Roller, the dies were a little sharp edged and needed a spin in the lathe to polish the edges so they didn't indent and split aluminum sheet at the edges of the bead, but the roller itself works fine. I mounted an old steering wheel to mine in place of the hand crank for more precise control, and built an adjustable straight edge guide fence for it, and I'm happy with it for the cost of it. I've probably rolled 500' of beads with it in 5 years time. I've got a lathe, so I have also made some custom dies for it.
