Default Can't find my tool :(

I seem to have lost my sheet metal edging tool used to put the slight bevel on overlapping sheet metal seams. It was a small pair of pliers with a bearing welded to each jaw at an angle with an edge guide on each bearing. Rolling this on the edge of sheetmetal several times squeezing the handles harder at each pass put a very nice 3-4 degree bevel on the edge.
I have been searching the web for the last 2 hrs. trying to find another one or something similar and all I find are bench mounted, crank machines.
If anyone has any idea what I am talking about - considering my poor description - can you steer me in the correct direction ?
The one I had was purchased from a dealer specalizing in sheet metal hand tools at Oshkosh many years ago.
Thank you

Thank you Cleko.

I had just gone to Van's site hoping for a tool clue and a post there mentioned Cleveland tool. (They never came up on my searches ??) Anyway, there was the tool I need. The top one on your suggestion Cleko

Thank you

Yeah Cleveland tools in Iowa. I have wanted a set of those vise grip style for a long time and picked up a pair at Oshkosh last week. Really cool tool.

Ooh, that's a cool tool. Good to know about, though I won't need it for another five years yet.
