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.

i've been looking at the english wheels they have.

I have bought their replacement shrinker and stretcher jaws from them, they have held up pretty good.

Yeah I was looking at their english wheel and tubing roller. I believe it was their second to cheapest one they made looked just like harbor freights unit. I didn't want to buy one and realize that's all it was.

Have you seen http://www.tricktools.com/ I haven't used their products, but they do look of quality, but they are very expensive.
