DWD, what are your specifications?
I have the cutters to machine 5/8” linear solid stock that you thread onto wires to hold the slats together. Can be any length. Use 1/16” common cable available at most hardware stores for the “wire”. The profile allows for finished appearance on both sides, and can be used in a reversing “S” curve not usually done with canvas backed rolls. You would need to cut the tenons on the ends unless you can tell me the finished length of the slats with tenons, which are usually 3/8” long (and 3/8” thick) on each end. This method requires a “lock” strip about 1 1/2” to start the roll. The name implies one of its functions, holding a lock mechanism. The width is used to drill holes in the back which hold the cable crimps out of sight.
PM me if this has potential for you.
