looks awesome. I just had to do some drip rail, and my dies aren't far off of yours. I did do some pre forming before i entered the pullmax dies.

Our first task tonight was to modify die set #2 from last night so it would also tighten up the reverse joggle.























Next, Die set #3 for adding the remaining folds. A partial bend is done in the magnetic brake, and then the die set forms them more accurately.



Before:







After....







Comparison:














I like this method much better, looks to be more easily repeatable with better consistency.

Great!!!! Really helps to have examples like this and the trial/error process You used. Some of the earlier efforts looked "pretty good" to me. I mite have called it good.

Norm, actually some of the efforts in using the bead roller took some "manipulation" to see those results, ie: not easily duplicated if you were looking for consistency. I have two to make, one for either side of a windshield, so they need to match fairly well.


Thanks Steve, not too shabby yourself!
