Bead Forming Tools
When you need to quickly and accurately cut small beads, these are the tools to use. Bead Forming Tools are scrapers that have a half round cut into the end of the tool. It is best to rough out the bead by cutting a groove on each side for relief first, then ease in the Bead Forming Tool while pivoting side to side while shaping the bead. These tools can be used to shape a captive ring before cutting it free with the captive ring tools we offer. We offer three sizes of Bead Forming Tools: 1/4", 3/8"', and 1/2", each is made out of 1/4" thick high speed steel.
