i have just got(in fact still in box) a harbor frieght bead roller. it comes with some dies but i am wanting some dies to make an edge on metal(the rolled lip). i remember somebody on here said they made thier dies for this. has anybody made thier own for a harbor frieght roller? or could make some? how much would you charge? i dont have a lathe or anything like that so i would have to have somebody make them.
thanks

Jason,
Harbor frieght has a machine with the edge rolling dies. Here is the link. http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/Displayitem.taf?itemnumber=41081
By the time you buy or make dies for the bead roller you will spend just as much.
I have had one of these for a few years, make up an angled guide and it works the same as an expensive edger.
