Default Tweeter Ribbon Pleating Tool

Here is a pleating tool that is totally FREE! get a USPS Priority mail box like the 12 1/16 X 2 11/16 X 13 7/16 size. Cut off pieces carefully of the size needed for ribbon length. Wet them until the brown side comes off easily. After drying, ready to use. These make about 7 total pleats per inch, 14 angles. This piece isn't cut to size, so looks bad.

If brute force doesn't work, you aren't using enough of it!

from what I understand dimples may be better than folds. you can use perf metal and lay the foil over the perf metal (or plastic) rub the foil and instant dimples. Best regards Moray James.
