Several months ago Chuck Wahl from Vultures Row Aviation called us here at Baileigh looking for a solution to shape metal. This is what he ended up with.
Chuck is always braggin’ around his airplane buddies about the quality of his MSS-14H Shrinker Stretcher. He sends us movies and pictures from time to time of the work his guys in the shop do. Chuck gave us a ring a couple weeks back looking for a bead roller. He was in the process of re-skinning a 1943 Curtiss Helldiver.
Not impressed with the standard bead rollers on the market, he went with our new heavy duty 16 gauge bead roller. The BR-16E-36 gave Chuck the throat depth, adjustability, and capacity he was looking for.
Here is some 2024-T3 Aluminum .062″ thick. Chuck will be sending pictures of his progress of the plane. Check back for updates!
Baileigh Industrial offers a full line of bead rollers, from entry level to industrial. Hand crank Bead Rollers, Electric Bead Rollers and Heavy Duty Bead Rollers.
