: : Does anyone out there know of where I might be able to get a 1 foot length of 12" diameter copper tube? I am new to all this steam stuff, but would like to build a boiler in copper. The copper would mainly be a decorative shell for the coils within. It would be what I believe is called a monotube type boiler. It can be described as a shell with coil after coil of copper tubing wound inside of the shell, and fired with a propane burner. I intend to use a burner from a deepfry turkey cooker. Seeing one at a sporting goods store, gave me the idea. If anyone has any other ideas, let me know. I can use all the advise I can get. Thanks, Lew
I built a monotube boiler out of stainless steel tubing, and the easiest way to get a reasonable outer casing is to use a stainless steel pot with the bottom cut out (cookware).
