    The downside is the non-powered crank option. The plus is the factory circle attachment and workpiece support. Fasti-werks circa 1962

      It's a pretty decadent machine. He generously brought it a meet a couple of years ago to help me with a project. Didn't end up using it for my job, but it sure did make me (and probably some others) want one just like it.

        Yes ... worked a treat....

        Also Gents ... any tips & tricks you have or special Dies you have used for “one off jobs” please share if you would.

        As we know Mix matching dies can made some amazing shapes.

          This is the fabrication of the inner panel for a 55 Chev lift gate. Based on how it sits on the car, this is what catches all the water inside from condensation and rain water leaks, so first to rust. Other than the 3 straight bends, all others were made using the bead roller...

          To start the layout on the new metal, I wanted to find the center of the radius along the window opening. By holding a sanding disc on the flats and scuffing, it showed the edges of the radius...







          Then laid out a pattern to be able to measure from the bottom crease...



          ....and transposed it to the new sheet...







          The top edge was trimmed to size and the tipping wheel used to fold over the welding flange...





          Comparison....



          The bottom was marked with the tipping wheel and folded in the apron brake. Then trimmed to size, again using the tipping wheel to fold over the welding flange...



          It's real close right now, just needs a bit of tweaking.













          This was made using 18 ga, I think if I had the factory 19 ga metal it would have formed much easier..

                      Hi all.
                      I normally use a opened ended spanner they do a nice rad and come in a good range of sizes.
                      Regards Dennis

                      These beads were actually done in the Lennox but still needed the ends coined.. A piece of tubing the correct size with relief on one side, as Neil pointed out...
