How tight of a roll ? You can experiment with a section of the photo-etch frame on various things like nails, xacto handles, etc ..

i figured it out, measurement of piece to be rolled divided by 3.1416 equals the dia of the rod to be used to roll the material. it works. now why dont the pe makers just tell you the dia of the pcs to be rolled. also if i am not wrong most if not all the pe kits out there will probably be metric in size. part im trying to roll is the spare antenna holders on the hertzer, dia is .039 roughtly 1mm thanks for the quick reply.

I have a mission models multi tool (large). I heat up the PE and bend it around that. If I need anything bigger I usually can find it out in my garage.
