They work ok. If you try to roll tube thats too thick the rollers are going to slip on the drive axle. There is a company that makes a new axle that is keyed and makes different size rollers.

I used one to build my engine stand and shroud. the shaft it comes with is keyed. However the bolt holes in the rollers will strip out. its not the shaft thats the problem. It will also corkscrew all the bends.

you have to go easy on it, dont try to get more than a half turn at a time on the tensioner. the farther you turn it the more torque required to turn the handwheel hence the problems with stripping the set screws. I was well worth the price for a one time project or occasional use. While youe at it get one of their $4.00 or something angle finders, will come in handy for compound bends like my engine stand.
