3-In-One Hand Beading Tool - Simple and easy to use

Hand Beading Tool

Introducing our new beading tool manufactured and assembled in the UK.

Simple and easy to use, this tool is called a three in one because there are three ways of using it:

  1. With the machine gripped in a vice use the handle provided to turn the primary shaft and form a bead
  2. With the machine gripped in a vice use an electric or battery drill to turn the primary shaft and form a bead
  3. If the pipe to be beaded is in a static situation, then roll the machine around the pipe to form a bead

BeadST version


The body parts are machined from high grade aluminium and anodised for a tough finish and appearance.

The primary drive shaft is heat treated carbon steel and the rollers are case hardened for long life.

There are 2 versions of the tool.

Our standard model will bead 16 swg aluminium and copper pipes ranging from 10mm id upwards.

Our Bead ST model has been designed specifically to bead 16swg stainless steel seamless or welded tube.

It differs from our standard bead tool in that

  • The main shaft is much larger diameter giving us the strength we need to handle stainless steel.
  • The body is larger allowing the bearings to be placed further apart increasing rigidly.
  • The shaft bearings are much larger in diameter and longer.

The tool will fit any size tube with an internal bore larger than 15mm.

An elegant design, simple to operate, an extremely reliable useful tool.
