Who is chip foose?

The local powdercoater her does moto parts, but he also blasts and p-c's a lot of patio furniture. Pretty cheap, looks good, lasts a long time.

This tool has never failed me, even on 180 sportbike tires. Simple, no moving small parts. You have to work an area of the bead, not just one spot, but it has always worked for me.
