Default Setting Down Cheat?

I was working on a 16 ga bucket/can the other day, and after I burred my edge, and went to assemble the bottom I was having trouble hammering the bottom on to the bodies flange. My setting down machine WILL NOT even think about 16 ga...I grabbed a pair of nippers, and they worked perfectly for folding over the edge on the bottom. The ones I have are about 14" or so long, so I had pretty good leverage. The face/jaws of the nippers are pretty worn down, so they didn't leave any marks on the can. Just thought I'd pass this along. I didn't want to hijack the other thread!
