Photo currently shows the older BR-23 model. You will receive the new BR-24 model as seen under the manual bead former section here:

(Included Bead Former Head Unit, Motor Kit & Stand - tooling extra)

Our own, 100% UK made, Stakesys Heavy Duty 230v Electric Bead Former with a 24” throat depth allowing beads, steps, tipped and wired edges to be formed into steel up to 1.2mm and aluminium up to 1.6mm.

The 1” diameter shafts run in 4 bronze bushings and the upper shaft has fore and aft adjustment for centering rolls and adjusting step die angles. The box section is 5mm wall with a solid billet steel centre block to prevent flex, and the pressure adjustment handle is a bakelite type plastic with internal bearings. We have tried to keep the upper shaft adjustment backlash down to a minimum to make it a machine to use.

The Stakesys BR-24 Electric Bead Former comes complete with an adjustable backstop rail to attach the optional backstops (available separately in the next few months). 

The 230v motor kit comes separately for shipping reasons, and is designed to attached in lss than 30 minutes. No wiring is necessary. Simply bolt on and adjust the x,y and z alignment and the cush drives and you are ready to go.

Comes without roll sets which are available in the following shapes under a separate listing:

-Round Bead

-Square Bead

-Rounded Square Bead

-Step Roll (Joggle)

-Tank Roll with backstop

-3 Stage / 6-Roll Wired Bead Kit (coming soon)

-3 Stage / 6-Roll Safety Edge Kit (Pittsburgh lip)

-Tipping Dies with Backstop & Smooth Lower Rolls


230v Motor Kit

230v Motor upgrade kit designed and built in-house at Stakesy’s as a 15 minute bolt on upgrade to convert your manual BR-23 bead former to an electric machine. No wiring necessary. The kit replaces the handle and fits directly on to the lower drive shaft via a cush drive and is adjustable in 3 directions for perfect alignment. 

Power comes from an 230v / 250w (1/2hp) induction motor which is almost silent in operation. This motor is 5 times more powerful than the noisy Dayton Brush motors found on other machines. Power is converted from 230vAC to 24DC at the aluminium twin pedal switch, where the operator can choose from both forward and reverse directions independently, whilst keeping both hands on the workpiece. Speed is infinitely variable from 0 rpm upwards and controlled via the dial on the motor housing. All cabling is armour plates for industrial environments and the machine is fitted with an No-Volt-Release emergency switch. 

We found this twin pedal design far more controllable than the single pedal speed controller systems commonly found on competitors' machines where its can be difficult to control speed on slower tricky corner shaping whilst trying to balance on 1 foot and control speed with the other. With our 2 pedal system a slow speed can be selected for better control during delicate operations such as tight radii corners, and then sped up on the dial for long straight shaping lines. The motor kit is powerful enough to bead 1.2mm mild steel and 1.6mm alu. Number of passes depends on both material and tooling on any bead former.
