this spring I came across a site that offered hand made cones of tin and copper, cant seem to find them now. Tried looking at Nativetech to learn how to but couldn't find directions just history. Anybody have an easy way or know who makes them? I have some projects That I think could use a cone or 2.

Could be the Brandenburgs?

If you need to make some tin cones:

get an old cookie tin and torch off the printed designs, cut strips of desired cone height with some sharp snips, cut them in trapezoidal shapes - alternating top to bottom, use a round awl from the hardware store as a mandrel, planish the cones into shape.

Cones should be mostly butt-to-butt at the seam, nice 'cone' shape NOT tube-shaped, some are brass, some copper, some tin. have fun.
