RIDGE ROLLER or BEAD ROLLER or RIDGE FORMER

This is a tool to suit a variety of industries. Tubes and pipes, down to an internal diameter of 25mm, as well as flat sheets can have a ridge applied. This compact unit rolls a neat ridge around copper, brass, aluminium, steel or stainless steel fittings to securely hold hoses in place.

USES

  • Radiators and cooling systems (both copper/brass and aluminium)
  • Intercoolers and all associated pipe work
  • Chassis building, and
  • Race car building

All the roller requires is a vice to be held down - No special benches - Use it and store it back into your tool draw.

CAPACITIES

Copper & Aluminium 3mm easily
Brass & Steel 2mm with *care
Stainless 1.6mm with *care

With *care means, the Ridge Roller will do the job with special care. With softer materials you might just set the depth and roll the ridge in one turn. Thicker and harder materials will require multiple adjustments to create the ridge over several turns.

It is impossible to make a Ridge Roller small enough to enable it to be used in small tubes down to 25mm, yet bulky enough to allow ridges in heavy and stronger materials with one turn.

All parts are CNC machined with the actual rollers being 4140 stock. All parts are Zinc-plated before assembly, for presentation.

The label repeats these thoughts: "Common sense dictates its capabilities"

Grooves made from the Ridge Roller.

All the roller requires is a vice to be held down, no special benches, use it and store it. In summary, this "Ridge Roller" turns a piece of pipe into a $5.00 radiator fitting, with the added insurance of knowing that the hose is securely held in place.
