Armour Making Tutorial - How to roll the edges of armour
Establishing the start of the roll
Using a modified Craftsman ball peen hammer I begin to roll the edge of the armour over the top of the anvil. I have rounded one edge of my anvil slightly to use for rolling. If the edge is too sharp it could scar the armour to the point of cutting it during the rolling.
Slightly form the edge by lightly striking it. The secret is to only shape it a little bit at a time. On the first pass it is only important to form it enough to establish a guide line.
The above picture shows the approximate angle the edge should be formed after 2 passes.
Continue light passes until the edge is kicked out about 45 degrees.
