HOW TO BEAD ROLL FOR BEGINNERS WITH A BUDGET BEAD ROLLERJun 10, 2021
so today I have my rap on some basics of
rolling and different things you can use this for and also some tips on how to style your lines on your panels so they look like they were meant to be there, right? Real
roller I think it was still and required with all the different dice. I'll show you a difference between the two in a minute, but I saw that I planned it. I only bought it because I had a couple of jobs I had to do. do with it I did both jobs and then I was planning on buying an electric bead
rollerbecause it can be tricky to work with alone if you have a decent sized panel.
I guess if you can still do it, I'll do it. I used it all the time, but I was going to buy an electric one, so it would never look like one from a fairly well-known brand and the quality of it was quite similar to theirs, since obviously like it was made in China, I really don't think that they still justified four thousand pounds that they were charging for their engine, so I've had this, I think about three years, maybe in your you still know it's not great, but for the money it's pretty good, yeah, I think they were 200. pound and I think I'm my guy with light support and all.
I think you buy the standards at Cheaper again, but I'll put a link in the description if you want to buy this particular one. Yes, it's three years old and still works. the base of e has stepped
rollers which are not made with stepped rollers as it looks like a factory pressed panel and then this is this one actually these will like to make some sort of bead you can see how that Is it pretty obvious that It has been made with the bead type roller, so will they look however you prefer? Really the only real problem with this is that there's a little bit of flexing at the end because it's so long. but other than that I'd probably like to lock it in the back and make it all better but don't bother so keep an eye out for something old school made back in the day when things were built to last so I'll show you how I mark things on the panels just to make it look like yes, if I have a panel that's a certain shape or I almost always do this method to get the lines that I want to use in the best crop, I'll mark this.
So far, I'll just shoot it, but it's a weird shape, it's shit if I wanted to. I'm using the flat wheels which will give you a raised pressure or whatever, pressing down will give you the effect of a pressed panel. If you do a full line around it, so if I quickly just wanted to make something that would look nice, I calculated how far I wanted to go from the edge depending on where I had to put the pleats. that or anything, I'm going to go to 30 30 every once in a while I would just trace a trace around it like this, get something with a rounded edge of the light, any kind of curve that you want, but it has my pattern traced that is explained by himself in this.
Obviously depending on where you want this to look like a pressed in or raised pressure, there will be any fiber or the way you do it that way or you can swap the rollers, so by doing it this way, Press this down is the exit and they are owning the bottom on the top right talk about it so you can set a now on my line and I just do this until it settles slightly and then I know basically one and a quarter turn is going to give me the right amount of tension to give me the kind of pressure I want, so I always try to do it in one go.
I know some people do it sometimes, but I'm always fine, I only get decent results. do it in one go, it's just a matter of slowly winding it around you, keep your head at this end so you can see the line you're trying to make and then angle your arm out to turn the handle which The tricky parts are much more easy if you have two pairs of hands, that's with beads, so it's like the cheapest top speed roller and you can feel like you know that's the main difference or you come out of something that guards thousands, but I.
We'll see, the main difference is that it is motorized, you will be much more precise with your lines because you have two hammers on the piece and you are not using some brain power while we are maneuvering it to be able to do much more complex things with an electric one than, like I said, I'm looking, but although the advantage of pressing the panels is obviously the strength that gives the panel that flexible twist. Probably one of the best things about doing it is that if you're going to weld along the entire bottom edge of something like you just made a gearbox tunnel or whatever, it's going to require a lot of welding if you have a flat sheet and you're Impatient like me when it comes to soldering it, you solder it too fast and then you warp everything and you know, and then it takes you hours to straighten it all out if you have one of these if If you put a step edge like that 20 mil away from the gasket, if that was a gearbox tunnel that goes all the way up here, you'll know and roll that that little bit of pressure just reduces the risk of this panel warping so much that it's worth having. one of these just for that, that's probably what you know, which I think is the best thing of all, all right.
I mean, obviously being able to do this makes you look very professional, even if you're not. I think it just looks good. I know I like it better than a flat panel, it has that or just if you've made it and you think it looks good, there's our finished little panel, that's my video on that basic bead winding, there's a lot of other different accessories. you can get to the end of these to do all kinds of different things, there's so many things you can do, this is really just the absolute basics, even just being able to do that, I think it'll do for whatever project you're working on.
Simply looking bad is much better than just being flashy, so yeah, go find one and roll some beads. I sit there just looking at the layers.
