Top Tier Bead Rollers

Bead rollers and bead formers make it easy to add strength and rigidity to your project's sheet metal parts — parts like floor panels and firewalls, louvers, even tube ends that will be used for radiator, heater core, inter-cooler, fuel lines, vacuum plumbing, ducting. All of Eastwood's pro-quality metalworking tools come with the accessories you'll need for easy metal-forming.

Fabricate your own patch panels with a Shrinker Stretcher

Save money by creating your own automotive patch panels with a Shrinker Stretcher from Eastwood. Metal-forming tools like a shrinker stretcher allow you to add a gentle radius to metal by either shrinking or stretching the metal, whether it's steel, stainless or aluminum. It's perfect for forming patches for windshield frames, dog legs, trunk openings... almost any metal fabrication requiring a combination curve and angle. These metal fab tools use compound leverage to help you stretch and shrink metal and accomplish similar metalworking tasks effortlessly, without making relief cuts, heating or hammer-forming. These top-quality metal-shaping tools below are available at PPC Co.!

Metal Cutting

Before you can start welding you are typically going to need to cut and shape the metal to be welded. For light gauge sheet metal body work that's going to mean tin snips. For heavier sheet you likely want shears, pneumatic or electrically powered or at the very least our compound leverage nibbler. For structural steel tube Eastwood's got a 10" miter chop saw that makes chassis fabrication a breeze. For really tough jobs nothing can cut thru like the power of an oxy-acetylene torch. We even have a hole punch that can accurately produce holes in metal up to 16 gauge with just leverage.

Aviation Snips, usually called Tin Snips are must have tools for body work, and rust repairs . Tin Snips allow you to make clean straight or curved cuts in sheet metal. Whether you are fabricating a patch panel or trimming the panels already on the car, good quality snips make it easy. We offers a wide selection of Wiss Aviation Snips and Eastwood Tin Snips to handle all of your fabrication needs.

Top Quality Tube Benders

You've come to the right place for the metal fabrication tools you'll need to easily bend bumpers, brackets, pipes, tubing and the like. As you see below, our powerful metal-bending tools help you easily form bumper and fender brackets, ornamental ironwork, and more, while the Eastwood Pro Former Tube Bender uses hydraulic ram power to produce accurate bends easily, with no kinks, no flattening of tubes or pipes. You'll also find pipe and tube notchers that can help you bore up to a 2"-deep hole at an angle in tubing or pipes; our tube notcher kit includes bi-metallic hole saws in 1", 1.25", 1.25", 1.37" and 1.5" diameters.

English Wheels (also known as Wheeling Machines)

An English Wheel is a metal-forming tool that allows you to produce compound curves in sheets of metal. The wheeling process stretches the metal between a top rolling wheel and the bottom anvil wheel, both of which are easily adjustable to your exact needs. With additional anvils for sale separately, you can add a variety of different curves to the metal workpiece. English Wheels are commonly used to fabricate coach-built automotive panels, aircraft skins, and more. With our English Wheel metalworking tool, fabrication shops and DIY hobbyists can now shrink, stretch and custom-form shapes, recreating panels that are no longer available.

Mallets and Sandbags

In automotive refinishing and auto body work, you often have to give your workpiece a good bang or two. But since you can't afford to damage it, there's nothing better (or safer) to use than these no-mar mallets from Eastwood. They're not rubber mallets — they're really ultra-high-molecular-weight plastic mallets that do the same job as rubber mallets, and won't mar your workpiece as they help you stretch and form metal. These metal-forming tools come in 3 sizes of round mallets and 3 sizes of teardrop-shaped mallets, all with strong hickory handles, making these shop tools any pro or DIYer would love to own.
