Guttering woes part 2...

I found the tools I used for making gutters from pewter foil.
They are simplicity itself.  Made from KS Metal Centre telescopic brass tubes and soldered to a bit of brass plate.

I'm afraid even with my new camera I just can't take close-ups without blur, but you should get the idea, until I can make the camera work on macro.

The finished gutter section at a scale 6 feet in 7mm scale is the silver bit, complete with joining flange pressed in.


  1. Great stuff, very helpful - thanks Martin.

  2. I'll try to get better pics, Iain.
    Guess what, the buildings above used ogee gutters!! Better get another press tool made!
