Tubing Rib Maker?

I've seen a tool designed to be able to put a rib or a bulge in tubing so that that a hose is less likely to come off. What is it called and where do I get one?

Thanks,

Devin

Re: Tubing Rib Maker?

A double flaring tool can put a bulge at the end of a tube if you don't complete the second step.

Re: Tubing Rib Maker?

You are looking for a bead roller. Here's one that will do 5/8" tube and larger: https://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS/555/8008...yABEgIBT_D_BwE

Tube beading tool. Thanks guys. I knew it existed, had no idea what to call it to search for one.

Thanks

Re: Tubing Rib Maker?

There is a cheaper way.

Put a compression ferrule on the tubing IF you can slide the compression nut back off of the other end.

Re: Tubing Rib Maker?

I have used the same method as Dyno John. Just make an incomplete double flare. That type of feature is called a "hose bead". The flanged looking bead that is a distance from the end of the tube that locates the end of the hose is called a "stop bead". I got those bits of wisdom from a friend who had a business making all kinds of little bent tubing gizmos for the auto industry.
