Check out HAMB and even better,

Like any tools there are fans of various brands, but you should be able to wade through and get a good idea the good and bad points of each...

Well I ended up getting the heavy duty one by Woodward fab. I'll update if anyone is interested. Also if anyone does buy metal working tools I for one would love to hear what you have and if it was worth what you spent!!

I bought a bead roller (nice one) used it for the job and just sat. You need to have a lot of jobs for it or it won't pay for itself.

I agree, I work in a restoration shop so I'll put it to use. I just switched jobs and at the last place I was "spoiled" with all the equipment I had access to now when I need something I don't have it lol
