I have an antique standing seam roof crimper, that I would like to learn how to use. It has 2 handles that extend up from the floor, and is sort of like a hand sheet metal brake. It has a foot pedal on the side which seems to serve a crimping function. I want to use this to make copper range hoods. I am assuming you can form the seams with this tool from flat sheets of metal. Any ideas on how to use one of these antique tools? This one says "Niagara" on the foot pedal. Thanks

I personally don't know many details on this but if you send me a photo, maybe I can give some help -- [email protected] Other than that, perhaps you should track down current suppliers of crimpers and seamers and ask them ... such as www.firstchoicetools.com

what you have, come in a pair. they are standing seam roofing seamers.they should be for one inch standing seam.one is for crimping the two sheets together and the second one finishes the crimp.you needa set of pin tongs to turn the flat sheets up .contact your local roofing store they can tell you about them or a old roofer who used these before it became modernized.this is what a hard days work was back then i used them myself and beleive me they will make you a man.good luck
