double seam for attaching the bottom of the oval box
thank u very much for your answer. the main problem for me in the process is after folding the bottom on the box flange by hammer it fold again to the the body box first to about 45 degrees and then flatten what beads should i use for the 45m degrees step thanks again baruch

For45 degree on double seam...
You should use the swedger wheels to gradually( 2-4 times around) bring it up to and past 45 degrees. Bring it up as far past 45 you can,just to the amount that you don't start to make a flaw in your box or main object. (Do you know what a swedge wheel looks like ?) I can send photos of the 3
