#101-1 Impress Bead Liner

An inexpensive, easy to use, yet remarkably effective tool for lining your beads with silver! Solid steel and cast iron construction ensures a lifetime of service.

The Impress has a small centering peg which holds your tubing on center while it is being flared. Each size of tubing ID needs a centering peg to fit it. The pegs screw into the bottom post and are easily interchanged. The Impress comes with a peg that fits the most popular tubing size used for beads that fit the european charm bracelets. You can order other sizes as well separately, and can also choose any size peg to come pre-installed on your tool for free by clicking the drop-down list immediately below.

NOTE:
The Impress is often made to order, and will at times have a lead time of 2 weeks. Please feel free to click the contact link on the left and ask about current lead times. You may be pleasantly surprised to find your tool will ship next business day!

#101-2 Wide Impress


2.75 inches between posts, same screw and cone size as the original Impress. All of the original centering pegs, flaring dies, etc fit in this tool. It works just like the original on "normal" size beads, and also handles much wider items like silver pendants, huge beads, fused or slumped glass pieces.

Just select the size you want from the drop-down list below.

#101-3 Dave's Deburing Tool

Just one or two gentle spins of this tool removes the bur from the tubing ends, leaving a perfectly chamfered end, which translates to a smooth, shiny, perfectly shaped rivet edge. Just about 3 seconds per end. It's effortless!

#101-4 Riser Kit for Impress

These steel blocks raise the height by 3/4 inch, to allow a 1and 1/2 inch tube height. They are easily installed by removing the two screws from the base plate and replacing them with these and the two longer screws supplied with the kit. All you need is a #2 Philips screwdriver. For even greater height, they may be stacked. You'll need the 2 inch screws for that, which are listed in this same catalog section.

#101-6 Little Phil

A #2 philips screwdriver and socket wrench in one tiny tool. Change your Impress pegs and Flaring Dies without having to remove the Cone or base! Tip end is a #2 philips head, and the back end is a 1/4 inch socket that fits the Flaring dies. Smaller than a dime, fits between the cone and peg and works just great! I make these myself.

Centering Pegs for Impress

#101-7 Centering Pegs for Impress

These pegs fit various common sizes of tubing. Just unscrew the standard peg and replace it with one of these. You will need a #2 Philips screwdriver for that.

PLEASE NOTE: The only figure of merit for choosing centering pegs is the tubing ID. Tubing OD's are also listed in the peg size list, but all that you need to match up is the tubing ID. Typical OD's are listed simply for convenience in identifying common tubing sizes.

Shown:
Left: 6 mm OD X 5.0 mm ID
Right: 5.08 mm OD X 4.37 mm ID (Fits Pandora)

$6.00

#101-8 Flaring Die for 3/32 OD X 1/16 ID 3/32 mandrel beads

3/32 tubing works great for attaching bead caps! But because it is so small, don't expect a big wide lip like you get with large tubes!

#10111 Ball Bearing for Impress

This is a replacement for the ball that sits inside the Impress cone allowing it to swivel. It is a 3/16 inch (4.75 mm) diameter ball bearing. You can probably find these at a local hardware store as well.  I'm just offering them here as a convenience. You will never need this unless you lose yours. They don't wear out.

#10112 Mini Tubing Cutter

Temporarily out of stock

Empire brand model# 2810
The best tubing cutter I could find in this price range, it out-performs others by far. It has a very sharp, hardened steel cutting wheel, is super accurate, and really easy to use. It leaves no burr on the outside whatever, and just a small ridge on the inside that is easily removed with Dave's Debur Tool.
