    Just to get closure on my original post regarding small steel cones... It may be against policy to offer thanks to respondents but I'd like to do so any way. Reading through the enormous amount of content on this site and the thousands of highly specialized and intricate applications represented, I almost feel like I should be apologetic about floating the original question. But it wasn't like I didn't try to find my own solution first.

    Here is the almost-finished result for which I wanted the steel cones:

    When the weather improves here in New England, I'll go out back and smoke up a rib for everyone who offered their genuine and helpful advice on the issue of the steel cones. Truth is, they're still not perfect--but the smoker works great!

    Good to hear that you're happy. On the rib smoking, it's not quite as rewarding to the respondents when you're also the consumer...

    It is always appreciated to see the end result when we are asked for advise.

    That looks like a smoker of a smoker. Wish I could be there when you do fire it up.

    It is so uncommon for new people to follow up on questions, thanks!

    Hell, we might even let you stick around here.

    I think the approach you described (rolling) was used to produce the result (see final post from me in this thread). Thank you for your guidance.

    I could make that on a manual engine lathe to perhaps +- .002 but it would be a lot of work for just two parts. Might be $360. if I wanted the job ..I don't..

    wait, for a stove top stack cap ..We had sheet metal guys who could knock that out in about ten minuets so about $6.00 to $10 each. +- a 1/16 or so.
