I have read the book by K N Harris on boiler making and have a understanding of the process.

Are there any plans that are available for a vertical boiler at around 6 inch dia maximum.

The book has plans but I prefer to have a drawing to work to if that's possible.

Also finding a supplier for the copper tube has also been difficult to find.

I was a sheetmetal worker so I have the confidence to make the boiler to a good standard.

Tubal Cain did a series on the building of a 5" shop boiler in ME starting in Vol. 144 #3591 18 Aug. 1978. You might find it useful.
