Anyone made a Joggler/Joddler/flanging/edge setting tool?

    Just been poking around on the usual online auction site to find a price for one and can't find any under £35.

    Anyone made one before?
  2. Hello Tony,

    I bought mine but discovered that it didn't make very neat joints, so I always butt weld now. The punch is useful however.
    I suppose you could make up a pair of jaws and weld them to a cheapo set of Mole grips? Personally I'd advise against getting one.

    I bought a pair and have never used them other than when I first got them and tried em out on a bit of scrap. Just butt welded. Could never be bothered joggling that much metal.

    Only really need it for one job, but funds are to tight to cough up that sort of money for something that I may never use again.

    May just get a couple of lumps of steel and stick some 1mm sheet on them to make the shape, then just whack it with a hammer.
    Would I be able to get enough pressure to create the flange if I was to run 4 bolts like this:
  6. I've got one and used it, also bought one of the fancy ratchet-driven ones but not needed that yet. I've tried to do butt joints where possible, mainly since starting to read on this site about welding in a bit more detail.

    All it's doing is two bends in one go, in many cases you could get the same effect with a big pair of slip-jaw pliers by bending the edge down then up again a few mm further out.

    You could use this in a vice to apply the force. Use a pair of dowels/bolts to align the fixture.

    Loads of people, but they usually refer to it as a bead roller???

    Yup from a pair of Vise Grips and 2 pcs of flatbar welded to the jaws. The flat bar was step cut then welded to the jaws...Bob
