Have found a copper emersion tank behind wall when rennovating kitchen. We're wanting to cut it into a splashback and have tried using a dremel to no avail. Anyone know of any ironmongors or anywhere we could get it cut to size, in this area or in town? Thanks.

You could try Sillars down near Trongate:

The guy who runs Reid Timber used to be a blacksmith so he might be able to help:

Alternatively, get yourself an angle grinder and some cutting blades down at Bill's Tools, have a bit of practice on some s**** first and then do ot yourself.

The thing with copper is that it 'work hardens' Once the copper is spun into the shape of an immersion heater it's actually quite tough. This means cutting it and or trying to flatten it into a splash back, without annealing it is going to be a seriously hard job! Pull the tank out and sell it for s****. Use the cash to buy a sheet of thin copper for your splash back!

Is s**** a banned word now?

You've got to work it out;
"practice on some s**** first", "sell it for s****"
Hint, it's not poop and it rhymes with clap
