    I recently bought this Enders 9060 without a tin.

    After fitting new pips and O rings and graphite packing I got it running

    and then put it on the 'to do' shelf waiting for a suitable tin.

    Then I started an unrelated project and went down to my friendly metal shop to buy some stainless rod. There I spied a box of aluminium off-cuts for £5 the box; angles, plates, box sections. As I contemplated whether to buy it or not I had a Eureka moment, and decided to make a tin/case for the Enders out of the pieces.

    I won't go through the fabrication - it involved sketching a simple plan,

    and using the simple processes of cutting, bending and aluminium riveting (and JB weld for the lid overlaps). This is the result.

    The stove locks in place when stored, and the same slide locks it in place when in the 'use' position.

    Not bad for less than £5!

    Since this little stove kicks out a lot of heat, the next job is to make a tank heat shield from stainless, and also to replace the top three rails with stainless steel. My friendly metal shop is saving me some off-cuts!!
