Archway Tearaway L Bead

The big box stores in my area don't carry archway tearaway L bead, nor can I find limited quantities online for purchase. Is it possible to make an archway bead out of a regular L bead by clipping the flange in several areas?

I would think it would be difficult to maintain a fluid bend. Have you checked with a drywall supply house?

Apparently a nearby supply house is a Trimtex distributor. I'll call them.

IF YOU CHOOSE to make your own the key to a smooth bend is to space the slots evenly the whole length. Don't make one space 1" and another 1 1/2".
