Copper Field Kettle Kit

Recommended Posts

Bill Hudson

I have started on a new project.  It is a Georgian campaign copper field kettle kit. The kit is a large water kettle which contains, stored inside during transport, a small  tea kettle, a chocolate pot and a braziers to heat the two.  It also contains a small flask and two other containers for tea and possibly chocolate. There is a wooden handle that fits both the chocolate pot and the teapot. Alllare made from copper with possibly brass trimmings. 

Today I developed the forming plug and made a paper mockup kettle to test the patterns.

Were the kettle seems soldered?  What kind of metal did you use? I'm most interested in type of solder used too.
