    I think I have it figured out and have started on the big piece already. Would be fun someday to compare what I make to an actual piece to see how close I got. I'm sure what I make will work so that's the most important thing.

    I have started working on this edge bending die set but will take some time to complete it. Will post pics when I get it done though.

    Ultimately that is THE most important thing. I've never seen one put through its paces so I have no idea how those pieces do what you are trying to do. But that was true of the bead roller until I watched some u200b vids with Lazze and now I'm hooked. If I ever get done with my present project the bead roller is next. So I'm a little afraid to go digging into this Hossfeld I'm sure you'll come up with something as good or better than the original.
