    Oh my freakin’ gosh!!! How awesome is that! Do you work with sheet metal? I’m waiting for my metal punches to come in, then I have to figure out where to buy copper sheets along with silver.

    Love it love it love it!!!!

    It’s 30-gauge copper sheet. It cuts easily with kitchen shears. The hammering makes it harder. Shaping wasn’t that hard.
