Metalcraft Master Rolling / Bending / Riveting Tool

Metalcraft Master Rolling / Bending / Riveting Tool
Hand operated metal working tool that allows one to roll curves and circles, form angle bends, and to join pieces of metal strip together by riveting.

EASY TO USE - no pre-heating of metal required to roll, bend, or rivet.

Rolling is achieved by using the winding handle to drive the bar forwards and backwards through the rollers. As this is done with each pass, the long lever is used to gradually increase pressure to roll an ever tighter curve. Updated in 2017 to now make it even easier to produce more consistent bends and circles/arcs when rolling.

Bending  For the bending operation, metal is placed between the diamond shaped former and the two rollers. Operate the lever to gradually bend to required angle.  (Master RBR tool shown in this photo)


   

Riveting  is simply achieved by placing the material to be joined (with rivet in pre-punched hole) between the riveting posts on the machine. Use the lever to squeeze the rivet to form a strong joint.

Metalcraft's riveting system provides a safe, strong and authentic way of joining metalwork together for beginner and professional alike. Naturally, those with welding equipment may prefer to use this as a quick and convenient way to join formed metalwork together particularly in commercial use. It is no surprise that those able to weld easily spot the business diversification opportunities that Metalcraft tools offer.  (Practical RBR tool shown in these two riveting photos)

** A reverse bend is: When bending on the Micro Bender making a square or a pentagon shape is what we call a closed bend as the shape is being closed and the steel ends will eventually touch. A reverse or s bend is where the second bend is bringing the steel away from the original bend i.e. like a zig zag effect. Reason you can only use a lighter gauge material on a reverse bend is because when reverse bending the steel needs to sit on the recessed part of the die ( if the reverse bend is tight ) which is only half the width and so the bent steel does not have the full support of the die.

All tools are supplied with operating instructions. Please note that the maximum working capacity stated is for Hot Rolled Material or Annealed metal. Working beyond these limits or with material of greater hardness may reduce the operational life of the tool.
