Narrow type fluting pliers are used for straightening out or coaxing sheet metal into the correct shape. This tool makes narrow and precise flutes in sheet metal.
Building a Van’s RV-12, pliers work wonderfully on fluting wing ribs.
ECON FLUTING PLIERS NO COATING
The best value (price/quality) fluting plyer out there. I saw a video from EAA guys about it and that send my doubt away. I am Very happy with this one.
Very good pliers, if you dont want to see marks on the piece, just add masking tape on the jaws
I had to first file down the edges on the female part and then use duct tape on both parts to prevent getting marks on my work. Now that I have done this the pliers work quite well. Material : .020 2024 t3.
