Both novice metal workers and veteran fabricators use beading machines on a regular basis because they are an important tool for creating various shapes from sheet metal...
With a beading machine you can make important shapes such as curls, flanges, grooves, steps, and of course - beads. These are the most common metal formations one will use to create their projects. But you can make many other shapes as well.
Even though beading machines are used often and many metalworkers rely on them for their work, many of them don't maximize a beading machines many uses...
Beading Machine Basics is loaded with useful and little known beading machine techniques including how to adjust it properly, how to select die's, and how to create 'features' in your panels, and make the well.
In this DVD guide you'll get to watch Ron use different kinds of beading machines including the low cost machines that many novice metalworkers buy for their shop, older models that are considered 'vintage', and the larger and more advanced machines (the motor driven type). This way you'll get a proper education and build your knowledge and understand how to use the most common beading machines and use them more efficiently.
You'll understand the more important features of these machines and which features are to be used on specific metal projects.
As you know from Ron Covell's other DVD guides, he makes even the most advanced fabrication techniques easier to understand because he has been teaching and creating guides such as this for many years. His simple directions and descriptions of the different processes and techniques makes it a pleasure to watch and listen to. And as always you get excellent photography and close ups making it easier to follow.
With Beading Machine Basics you'll understand how to use them more efficiently, and in more ways than you thought possible.
