Bead Reamer
Use the bead reamer to enlarge, de-burr and round out bead holes. Three different tips are included to fit bead holes from the smallest up to 5mm. Each tip is coated with diamond dust for smooth, even reaming. Tips store conveniently inside the tool and attach to the front for use. A handy spring clip enables you to carry this tool in your pocket like a pen. For ideas on how to get the most out of your bead reamer, check out the bead reamer Handy Tip.

works wellDecember 12, 2012
simple tu use. i used it on some coin pearls that i couldnt string. it will likely pay for itself over the years so you may as well get one,esp on sale, if you have a growing stash of un-stringable beads.
i wish there was even a finer attachment.

Easy to use & good qualityDecember 27, 2011
This bead reamer is very easy to use and provides good results. When working with more fragile beads or stones, experiment first with a sample to check for chipping or cracking. I would recommend working slowly to prevent chipping or cracking more delicate stones or beads, and most importantly remember to keep the reamer wet as you work.

Great tool for beaders!April 25, 2011
This bead reamer was a life saver for me! I use 1mm stretch cord for many of the bracelets I use. Many times the beads are drilled from both ends rather than all the way through from one end. This makes them difficult to string on the cord. The bead reamer gets rid of the rough edges inside and the cord slides through easily!

This is a great little tool. Many times I have come across a bead or two that just needs a little help ... this is the answer. Very easy to use, too!

Great set~if the tools worked!August 24, 2010
I hate leaving negative reviews. But, I spent good money on this bead reamer and after using it once, replacing the implements properly~I went to use it a second time and they were jammed inside the housing compartment. Everyone in my family~including a product designer and an engineer could not get the implements out w/o risking a puncture wound.
So, I now have a useless but costly tool. I truly do LOVE Artbeads....but this product needs to be redesigned or they should find a better one to sell.

This is a great product for lampworkers. I always use it to smooth down the edges of my lampwork beads when I don't make them right. - Isamu
