I looked at the link. I'm a real newbie with few skills in this department. I don't have a clue how this tool could be used to get the door back into shape.

How does it work? What do you need to have to use it?

Thanks!

I ended up deciding to just live with the door the way it is for now, since that is an awful lot of an aluminum for a purely cosmetic repair, which I can do at any point in the future. However, I will probably still buy the roller for the door within a door which should technically have the rolled edge, although it is not as obvious. My thread in my signature shows what I've done so far, which is essentially just to flatten the metal and repair. Everything still seems in alignment.

As for the roller itself, I'm pretty sure you can just hold it perpendicular to the metal sheet and roll it around to maintain a consistent indentation in the edge.
