    I very much like your curved edge flanging tool. I've already got a bead roller, tipping dies, and a shrinker stretcher I use for the same purpose which work very nicely for me. If I didn't already have those in the shop, I would be making one based on your design. Will keep this in mind for our local HS Electric Vehicle Race Team as this would be rather easy for them to use and certainly much nicer on their very thin budget. Great idea, and well worth the effort and cost to make. Nicely done!

    Hi brianhw,

    Yes, a really nice design and will be a great addition to the HMT tools collection. Your YouTube video will make building and using one of these a lot easier.

    Thanks for the posting, Paul
