i know this has been asked before but how many of you guys have used a bead roller from harbor freight? i looked at it online and it seems really cheap. we only do one interior a year, so want something that the finished product will look good, but not cost me an arm and a leg, since it is not used much.
anybody out there used it?

Mike Pruitt running 2004 Black Diamond By Customperformance Modified

Mike built his own body and interior and used a Harbor Freight bead roller.

He is doing some R@D for me this year.

I've got one works well once you replace the set screws. They're soft and the heads strip out real easy! loojack

I have one, we use it a lot. I have it hooked up to an electric pipe threader so is an easy operation. It doesn't work as nice as my buddies Mittler bros. But it is much less expensive

Went looking for this bead roller on Harbor Freights web site, but only found the bead roller stand. Does anyone know what the part number is for the bead roller?
