    I work for a tubing manufacturing company. I think your tool will be the next addition to my tool box. I think it will work great for prototypes. Quicker than making dies and a punch.

    Great design and execution, I would consider putting a torch attachment so you can hot roll a bead in heavier tubing if need be

    I had to do that job once,, took 3/32" wire, made a proper sized ring and brazed it to the tube on the ends, once the hose was on and cinched, it worked well and nobody saw it. Did that for a customer once, cheap wanker wasn't happy with it, told him that's what you get when you you only want to pay a tuppence for a quid's worth of work, and to sod off and be glad with what was done for him.

    Now, I do this for my own work and NOBODY ELSE. Bugger the lot of them.
