I am hoping someone will be able to help me.
I am in the process of building a Bead roller and I would like to make my own dies.
Has anyone made his or her own dies? If so, would you have any drawings you would be kind enough to forward me? I appreciate there are hundreds of die designs available for different applications, but just thought someone might have made a standard set like the ones that come with the bead rollers you can buy on EBay etc.
I have drawn up the main body, shafts, bearing blocks, and quick release die clamp. I have acquired a clutched motor and have ordered a Drum Base foot pedal from EBay, which I hope to adapt to operate the motor via a Bowden cable so this can be a wondering foot pedal to suit different positions when using the bead roller. Once started I will do a post on the build. I guess I could draw up the dies but would save sometime if I could plagiarize.
I thank you all in advance for your time
