    Milland, you'll have to be content with enjoying the ribs vicariously. ;)

    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.

    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...

    Just to bring closure on this, I looked at many options, virtually all of them too pricey for a couple of rain caps on a $500 smoker (as has been stated by others).

    One poster found a 5.5"...
  7. This project is probably a non-starter due to...

    This project is probably a non-starter due to constraints of cost and requirements for design. I've looked at metal spinning options including off-the-shelf components for cost effectiveness,...

    Thanks for the Sheet Metal Gauge Chart! Also, this is partly "eye of the beholder" stuff, but there is a certain element of aesthetics in the design of the rain cap that another poster did pick up on...

    Never know unless you ask, right? The answer is: You can't one-off produce the steel cone as represented for five bucks, or even $40USD. But lots of folks on the forum have helped steer me toward a...

    How well would 1/32 or 3/64 hold up under snow and ice in New England?
  11. Hi, and thanks very much for taking time to help...

    Hi, and thanks very much for taking time to help me out in various ways here. Yes, I had already looked at Fabricor. Their spun solutions looked reasonably close, but before asking them for a quote...

    Thanks for your exhaustive response. I've quickly learned that the people who visit this forum bring a wealth of knowledge and machining expertise to this site. In truth, it's like I'm looking for a...

    Hi, and thanks for your response. No, the OP (me) didn't know that such parts (even with liberal tolerances) are x00 $ parts. But, how do you know unless you ask. I may have made a bad decision by...
  14. Thanks very much for taking time to respond. Yep,...

    Thanks very much for taking time to respond. Yep, this is what you get when a software guy starts dabbling in stuff that is better left to the professionals who visit this forum! So for that I...
  15. Thank you for your response. I clearly overshot...

    Thank you for your response. I clearly overshot (or maybe undershot would be a better term) in projecting requirements. Tolerance and finish are really not concerns. The attached will prove helpful...

    Thanks for that. Here's additional info regarding the final application. It doesn't have any significant requirements regarding tolerances or finish.268094
  17. Thank you very much for your response. The...

    Thank you very much for your response. The representation of precision wasn't a good choice on my part; this is not a precision job, hence no tolerances. I just figured the more info the better, but...
  18. Is it possible to make this simple, small steel cone?

    My knowledge of machining is just short of pathetic; I'm a software engineer and this question actually comes from a personal project, nothing professional.

    I'm been kind of surprised at how hard...
