Thanks guys. I hope your builds are going well. I made one and tested it before building them all and MDF seemed to work quite well. I was surprised, there wasn't even a mark on the MDF after flanging a hole. I've been using it for some form blocks and cutting blocks and it's held up quite nicely. I built extra slat forms since there are so many slat ribs to bend over them, but only needed the original 2, so the extras went un-used.

A late friend made me a set out hard wood that work great (left over from his Furniture making hobby). A few good blows with a 4 lb. dead blow gives a nice flange. Hope the MDF works as well.

Great job. That is the tool that I was making when I cut my index finger off.
