Bead Removal with a Rivet Tool


I was on LampworkEtc (LE) a while back, when one of my thread-mates Michelle of Formed in Fire showed us a YouTube How-To video she made using a rivet to remove a bead.  She said it would take any mandrel from about 1/16 to 1/8th, using a bit of foam or slight buffer between the tool and the bead.  

Check it out.  Looks like a great excuse to take a trip to my local Harbor Freight!
