It gouged quite a deep hole.  Did not know anything had happened until I noticed my watch was on
the floor..... :D :D

The copper gutters and downspouts look gorgeous! I learned a similar lesson recently installing a dryer vent, I have a nice scar on my wrist as a reminder how incredibly sharp thin metal can be.

That copper with the brick is a classy combo---
blood, sweat, and tears.

Too true... I'm not showing Hot Ingrid. Our new place has already had an extension to the cellar added into the plan. It doesn't need copper gutters too. Although they would look the tits.

@Giles I hope that the watch is okay. ???

Glad you aren't too badly damaged by the experience.

And I got a harsh reminder as to how sharp cut copper is....


Oh, how I can relate...

@Chris You got me worried, I had to check :D.  Must have been a trick of the light.....All intact after I did some gentle remodelling of the spring bar :-)

Excellent solution there!

Surprised you didn’t think of requesting custom GAH copper bolts for it.
The journey is the objective.

@Giles If you’re ever in the market for some copper light fixtures, Roger Pradier has a great line of copper lighting options. I installed some of our project and I think they look amazing and should patina beautifully!
