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
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.
- 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.

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"
