The Master Riveting, Bending & Rolling tool from Metalcraft is so much more than just a metal rolling tool to curve steel.
It is also a metal bender which can bend angles up to 60 degrees using its’ special diamond shaped forming head making this great bending tool a must for anyone looking for quality metal forming equipment.
Additionally, you can rivet metal together using the cold riveting system which squeezes a mild steel rivet (also available from Metalcraft) placed in the holes punched on our Master Punch & Shear tool to create a very strong joint without you needing to invest in welding equipment and training. Little wonder these tools prove so popular with hobbyists, DIY’ers and schools.
For the great price, its is arguably the most popular metal bending hand tools around today.

Operations and Features
No pre-heating of metal required when riveting, bending or rolling
Rolling is achieved by using the winding handle to drive the bar forwards and backwards through the rollers. As this is done with each pass, the long lever is used to gradually increase pressure to roll an ever tighter curve. End stop screw and nut fitted for producing consistent bends and circles/arcs when rolling.
For the bending operation, material is placed between the square or diamond shaped former and the side rollers. Operate the lever to gradually bend to required angle.
Riveting is simply achieved by placing the material to be joined (with rivet in pre-punched hole) between the riveting posts on the machine. Use the lever to squeeze up the rivet to form a strong joint.
To Weld or not to Weld?
Metalcraft's riveting system provides a safe, strong and authentic way of joining metalwork together for beginner and professional alike. Naturally, those with welding equipment may prefer to use this as a quick and convenient way to join formed metalwork together particularly in commercial use. It is no surprise that those able to weld easily spot the business diversification opportunities that Metalcraft tools offer.
