Welcome to the Tin Tinkers Group  

This site is dedicated to the promotion and exchange of information related to the trade of Historical Tin and Coppersmithing from the Early American Colonial Period to present day techniques.

The purpose of this site is to share ideas, tips and tricks, techniques and history of the trade and the goods that were made. We invite everyone who has an interest in this trade to actively participate.  

What is the Tin & Coppersmith Convergence?

It is the 'converging' or 'coming together' of Coppersmiths, Tinkers, and Tinsmiths from every walk of life and skill level, to share their knowledge and expertise in the Historical trades of related metal working.
