3-In-One Hand Beading Tool

Introducing our new beading tool manufactured and assembled in the UK.

Simple and easy to use, this tool is called a three in one because there are three ways of using it:

    1) With the machine gripped in a vice use the handle provided to turn the primary shaft to form a bead.

    2) With the machine gripped in a vice use a drill to turn the primary shaft to form a bead.

    3) If the tube to be beaded is in a static situation, then roll the machine around the pipe to form a bead.

The body parts are machined from high grade aluminium and anodised for a tough finish and appearance.

The primary drive shaft is heat treated carbon steel and the rollers are case hardened for long life.
