AVERY EDGE ROLLING TOOL
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.
