JP. The angle is more a figure of speech than an exact measurement.
Those narrow strips around the door frame are flimsy and bending them a tad stiffens them up. Cutting from one piece makes for a much superior finish.
Maule’s later doors are dine this way.
If plexiglass is sandwiched between skin and frame, the small head hard rivets will crack the plexiglass radially at the holes. Plexiglass holes should be drilled a size or two larger than the metal holes to allow for expansion and contraction which plexiglass is prone to.
DR I haven’t used that ASpruce tool but does look interesting

I don’t know what a helm is. Just bend the metal edges a tiny bit towards the fuselage but not enough that the metal contacts the fabric or paint. All it is is for stiffening.

Thanks for your reply Jeremy.
Now I need to look at all these parts for well understanding ( Now I'm working in Paris and the Maule is in a country airport at 6 hours from there.
...and helm is a mistake! The right word is "hem"
