Pin cushions, doll furniture and other items made from tin cans?

I have been searching endlessly for the tin curling tool that's similar to a screwdriver. It's completely round and has a slit in the middle perfect for slipping tin from a pop/beer can into and curling it. I've seen needle nose pliers used but they leave the curl kind of squared and not perfectly cylindrical.

I am also looking for patterns for the tin doll furniture, pincushions, and etc. I made these as a child and would like to make them again. Any help would be fantastic.

Since many people don't work with their hands or do crafts as much anymore I would not be surprised if the tool is no longer made or difficult to find. If you know someone with a machine shop they could probably fabricate the tool for you.
