Very Nice! That thing has gotta be insanely rugged. How are burn times? Fuel efficiency?

WW,

I think maybe this is what you are looking for. I worked on gutters for extra cash with a friend a few years back.

Here's a link.

Is this right Skids?

This one looks like the one that would do the job for you. Twice as fast :D I think it does two crimps at once. Mine only does one at a time. My son gave me mine as a present. he works at Roper Whitney where the make the famous Whitney #5 Junior hand puch. :)

The big home center stores should have the crimpers in their gutter section.
