I was wondering if there are any good tools for this, to make corrugated metal fences?

I know there's a Fiskars paper crimper tool, but I don't know if it's too big. Would it make the right size of corrugations for construction yard hoarding in 1/35 or 1/24 scale? Are there any other useful tools for this?

Could you not make your own former?

Get hold of some styrene sheet with suitable groove spacing for your scale (Evergreen, for example, or scribe parallel grooves yourself) and lay round rod in them to produce parallel ridges. Make another piece the same, sandwich malleable metal sheet (e.g. pewter foil) between them and press down firmly.

Repeat as required. The stuff is usually in standard size sheets so measure one up first so that you don't need to cut after corrugating.

Someone made a very cool corrugated metal making tool during the Build-A-Tool IV campaign. Maybe take a look at that.
