    A buddy of mine recently bought a motorized bead roller. It's terrible. The frame is plenty strong and it would probably roll a nice bead,but it is so underpowered it wont pull very thin aluminum through the rollers. I'll get the name of it so you can avoid it. All I can say now is it is blue. I'm thinking of the initials VB are on it,but not sure.

    I bought mine from Eastwood and am very pleased with it. When rolling large panels by yourself, it REALLY helps to have a surrounding support/table at the roller level. My first time I wasted a panel trying to roll without that table, kinks and bends = UGLY

    He needs to contact Mb about this and give them a chance to rectify the problem. Might be a common issue with a fix.
