After all the talk about baking recently, I dug out my "old gear" box and am going to cobble together a little test baking kit. This isn't meant for backcountry use, more just to play with baking in the backyard, and hopefully some use while car camping.
Anyhow, I've got an MSR Alpine Teapot and an MSR 1.1L Stowaway. As it happens, the teapot fits very nicely into the stowaway pot. I'd like to cut the top off of the teapot to make my baking pan (as shown by the dotted red line). Whether I dry bake or wet bake, I think this setup will work fairly well.
My question is: has anyone cut steel of this thickness with hand tools? I have snips, a dremel, and pliers, but nothing fancier. I don't even have a vice. I was thinking maybe I could use a hacksaw with a fine tooth metal blade?
I dont' use the teapot currently, so I'm not going to be too sad if I butcher it, but I figured I'd see if anyone has some advice.
