Aircraft Tool Supply (ATS) now manufactures the ATS Professional Beading Tool Kit. Used for making hose clamping beads in metal tubes, the kits were formerly produced by Parker and offered surplus by ATS. With its supply exhausted, ATS’s kit added the ability to work with ground, hardened, and polished surfaces for mar-free beads in aluminum, copper, brass and mild steel tubes ranging from ¼” to 1” in diameter. The kit is priced at $419.95 and includes a Lifetime Warranty. Call ATS (800-248-0638) for more information.
