We will demonstrate various types of beading dies, and show how to use them for straight and curved details. Several applications will be shown for the use of Rounding-Over dies. Tipping dies will be used for flanging, and step dies will be used for creating offsets, or 'joggles'. Various uses of a urethane (skateboard) wheel will be shown.
We will demonstrate the benefits of pre-stretching the metal before beading, and show what problems may arise if the metal is not pre-stretched. Layout for complicated patterns will be demonstrated, plus a variety of unusual uses for the beading machine.

Ron teaches and explains great methods of how to do your own fabricating with metal beading technics that can be duplicated in my own shop starting out on an inexpensive beading machine, what types of dies to use to produce what ever shaping you need to get the results needed. This class is well worth the money and time spent.
Thank you Ron.
