I'd really appreciate some help. I would like to put a rolled edge
on a strip of metal, such as the edge seen on a steel can or a cookie
cutter. Is there a hand tool or benchtop tool that can do this ? I'm
drawing a total blank on this process. I plan on using metal that is
about 22 gauge or thinner. So far I can't find this in my references,
or I'm looking in the wrong place.
I may not be on target here, but if your purpose is to have a rounded
edge on your metal (and not a RAISED rounded edge), what you would
need to do is start with round wire and mill it down. This will give
you a rounded edge as opposed to a crisp edge if you were to use
square wire. The refiners use this method, Hagstoz always asks me if
I want them to use round or square wire when I order flat rectangular
wire. What I choose will determine the edge. If you want a raised
edge, can’t help you, maybe someone else can!
