Nothing ultra-techno to be found here, but a couple radii to pound against for that fender that needs a little "attitude adjustment."
I used a hole saw which is about as thick as a fender. The slots in the round leave clearance for the edge roll.

The blocks can be used as a set, or either one can be mounted in a vise and used with a soft hammer.

I’m pretty simple. I chucked the caster in a hand drill. Spun the caster up against my disk sander and shaped different wheels.
The unintended benefit of using the Jorgensen clamp was being able to change the angle of the wheel. I could make it pinch down on either side of the main wheel which allowed me to be able to go right up against an edge seam or right up to the peak of a Roadmaster fender.

Thanks for sharing this bit of home grown genius.

I just worked on a set of peaked Roadmaster fenders with a hammer from my body and fender set and a bag of playground sand. The sand is moist enough and in a bag so that it doesn't shift easily. The hammer has just the right curve so that when the dent is out, the hammer head fits against the rest of the fender and you can't go too far. If the dent is on the rolled edge, a little bit of spot putty works well.
