The Parker Beading Tool has been the number one choice of mechanics for making clamping beads in metal tubes. And to this day, no other tool even comes close to matching its quality. For many years we were the sole supplier of these tools as a surplus product. Our supply is now exhausted, but our customers insisted that we take steps to bring the Parker back. So by special arrangement, we've tooled up to recreate this classic tool in every detail. And in the process we've added a few enhancements of our own, such as ground, hardened, and polished surfaces for mar-free beads in aluminum, copper, brass, and mild steel tubes ranging from 1/4" to 1" diameter. Meets MILSPEC MS33660D and SAE AS5131 standards.
