rolling flat metal bar into a ring

Anyone know how to roll a flat metal bar (may be a little less than 1/4" thick) into a ring? Kind of like this..

Ring   Easy Way Flat

I saw on TV there is a metal roller that supposed to do this kind of thing easily...may be someone here has one can help me out. I need to roll into a flat piece of metal (1.5" wide flat metal piece) into a 21" ring.

+1 and I would need to know what it's for before I could commit to help. Not being an but I would have to take it to work and justify it to the "powers that be".

Another option would be to try a steel supply place. They have all sorts of rings, etc. already made that might suit your purpose or they may be able to fabricate it for you.
Also they often have scrap pipe that you could get them to cut a piece off of. Just shootin' from the hip here...

Look at how some of the after market transmission coolers get mounted. It's very small plastic "bolts" that go through the radiator, with rubber foam pads to cushion and hold the oil cooler to the radiator. Might be an easier route.
