Default Seamer or Swage

Hi, new here and am wondering if any of you are familliar with these because I cannot find the size I'm looking for. We used them on flatlock roofing to lock the seams before soldering and also another small one for when we made outlet tubes and such.
I put a pic. here but think it got lost ,me and computers don't get along.Click image for larger version

That's very interesting.

I do remember sometime ago reading that several of the pexto items were being discontinued.

Its a pretty modest tool. You should be able to get something pretty close milled to use for a 5/8ths. But seams done that wide are bound to be ugly. :0

By the way , we called that thing a groove seamer for our flat locks. I've done a lot of roofs (copper) and had a carpenter make me a few out of some wood. Just rout out what ever size you want and smack it when you need to.
