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.
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

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.
