For pre-bending skin edges on lap joints and butt joints before riveting. “Edge rolling” will prevent skin edges from curling up during riveting. Machined round body made in our shop from 2024 aluminum. Hard black anodized finish for wear resistance. Ball bearing style nylon rollers (non marking); and spare set of rollers and instructions included.
Tool works great. Just go slow. It takes very little angle to roll the edge.
Very handy tool. Not great for inside curves, but a small relief cut on the handle, on each side of the rollers will help that.
Should clean up seals on my work nicely...thanks kids✈😎❗
This little tool is a must have for anyone building a metal airplane.
Works better than other edge forming tools I’ve used. Easy to be consistent.
Seems to work as advertised. I haven’t had a chance to use it much yet
It has about a 1/4" reach but you can add washers to get another 1/16". As for the angle, Avery recommends holding the tool at a very slightangle(4-5 degrees) and only making 1 or 2 passes.
