From TP Tools is the TP-200 bead roller. The new roller will easily add a half-round bead line to metal or aluminum by simply feeding the material into the bead mandrels while cranking the handle. By moving and turning the material while feeding, you can create custom-curved bead lines, flames, and other unique designs in your firewalls, truck beds, floorpans, interior dashes, or race car panels. Plus, these beads will add strength and stiffen the panel. By using optional mandrels, you can make larger beads (up to 1/2-inch wide) or create an offset flange on the edge of the metal for flush panel replacement. The optional slitting/shearing mandrel will slit and cut metal for custom applications. The TP-200 is made in the USA by TP Tools and features an adjustable top shaft assembly with tension screw adjustment for starting your bead in the center of a panel and for different bead depths. Heavy-duty ductile iron framework construction resists flexing, and the 20-inch throat enables a bead to be placed in the center of a 40-inch panel. Large 1-inch-diameter shafts with 2-inch-diameter mandrels and torque action gears, plus an extra-long crank handle, give the proper leverage needed to feed metal through the mandrels with maximum ease and minimal effort. The TP-200 is capable of beading, flanging, or slitting materials up to 18 gauge, and features built-in bench-mounting feet and a carrying handle for convenience. It includes a 1/4-inch bead mandrel set. For more info, contact TP Tools & Equipment at 800-321-9260, or visit www.tptools.com
