Beadliner

I can understand your queries so let me tell you a little
bit about the beadliner.Yes it is a lot of money but it is well worth it.
You will be able to enjoy a generous price markup with your beads.Also all
of my tools carry a lifetime warranty and if you are not happy
with the results simply return for a full refund.The beadliner now has the ability to hold beadcaps on the bead with the silver cored liner and i offer
larger dies for larger mandrel made beads up to 1/2 dia mandrel.
I have almost completed a DVD instructional video that will help
with the tech part.If you go to my website and click on the bead gallery
you will see some of the beads the beadliner can do.

I am afraid that when I buy your tool, that it don't work for me. And that I spoil a lot of silver and beads.

Perhaps you should make a movie of it, show us how you put the cores in the beads and place it on YouTube.

I can't go over to you for trying it. Or... Offer to people: Buy only when you like it.

But I can also imaging that that is a big risc for you. Perhaps you can show us references from satisfied buyers from you. Because the testimonials you have now on your site, doesn't show me any beadscores made by your tools.

So isnt the the site www.dangelodesigns.com loading and www.karfunkel.org sells stamps themself.

Two metal suppliers

Two metal suppliers that I use are Thunderbird Supply and Rio Grande. They carry many tube sizes by the foot. I use them regularly and they are reputable. Most price metals based on the daily price of silver or gold so you might want to check the daily stock market before buying.

I checked out your web site and the tools you are offering. Great job!! I come from an engineering and fabrication background and am very impressed with your knowledge and work space set up!!

I have a complete silver and gold bench for fabricating, titan for cabbing and polishing, glass grinders, major minor burner, 2 minor burners, and more hot heads I can shake a stick at ( I teach beginner / intermediate ) My only wish is that my studio was as CLEAN AS YOURS!!!

GREAT JOB!!

Char!

Hello All,

I just purchased the bead liner from Jerry. FIrst, Jerry is fantastic he was on top of the order from beginning to end. Sheesh Jerry, don't you take a weekend break??? All in all a smooth, quick and comfortable transaction. I would purchase items through retro again in a hearbeat.

First, the bead liner is strudy and very well made. It is an exceptional product. I'd love to see the machien shop (okay so I'm a bit of a dork- don't hold it against me!). The bead liner is packaged neatly and seems to be the only peice of equipment that I have that's neatly stored and self contained.

I havent invested in the silver tubing yet, so I dont have a thorough functional review - but did get a chance to play a little with it using a bit if silver tube that I had around for other purposes.

First, keep in mind that my metal working skills are non-existent. I know "nothing" about metal or metal smithing and whatnot. But the first few beads that I did look great. The only problems that I ran into where my own (not smoothing out the end of the cut end well enough, cracking a wonky ended bead). I think that I migh invest in a rawhide mallot to snug down the ends a bit because using my chasing hammer wasnt the best choice either....

Bottom line is that the tool works like a charm, even for a newbie with minimal skills. I am looking forward to lining more beads.

...and Jerry - I'd live to know when you have the instructional DVD finished!

Ooooh! Good idea! Can we put part of your video up on You Tube? You have my permission, as the filmmaker. :-)
My silver instructor in college used to say "Glue is CHEATING!" so the rivets never suited my tastes as well as a full liner.
