Default Greetings from the Jersey Cape

I'm Mac and I live on the southernmost tip of NJ, one of these days I'll move south and out of NJ.

I consider myself a semi-retired wrench. I've had 2 successful careers in the marine industry and retired 2 times but the divorce lawyers made me go back to working 40 hours a week. I'm retired in my mind, just not in body.

When not working the day job I spend most of my time in my shop playing with metal in one form or another. I'm a machinist, weldor, fabricator and have a fairly well equipped shop. On the sheet metal side of the shop I have a Pexto stomp shear, 4' box/pan brake, 4' slip roll, pexto notcher, and an assortment of import benders.

I got it in my mind that I wanted a bead roller. After looking at all the various upgrades that are done to the import bead rollers, I decided I wanted to build mine from scratch and that is what has brought me here.
