I have a number of .29 gauge steel panels, the longest being 27' . The panels are 39" wide.
I would like to form an offset flange on one long side of each panel, so that when laid over another it is a flush fit.
I am thinking of some type of hand help roll former. Maybe 18" long with a pair of offset bead roller dies to form the flange, and a pair of small guide/stabilizer wheels on each outboard end. A small hand crank would be sufficient to turn the dies.
I hate to try and reinvent the wheel so thought I would ask the great minds here if they had already seem or used or built such a device.
Any ideas or suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks, the Old Fool.
