How can I connect a thin sheet of metal inside a circular metal container? Answered

Without welding because the container and metal sheet are kind of too small to weld. I'm thinking of soldering them (I'm desperate) but I'm not sure if it will be effective. There will also a process where I will put the container in a boiling water bath so it is not possible to use adhesives that will melt. I know this sounds weird, but it's a school project. Thanks!

Unless you have some other issues use tabs and rivets and seal the joint with silicone sealer.

A great example of resistance spot welding which is a misnomer just like explosive welding.

Is steel adhesive, the one with two somethings that are being mixed, effective? We're trying to combine a metal roof sheet (it's thin only about a few mm) and a stainless steel container. I'm sorry. I know this sounds ridiculous but if I provide you more information, you'll probably think I'm nuts. Without bolts...

Sun heating and moon cooling twice a day will separate a solid two part adhesive due to daily metal expansion and contraction.

That is why motor homes use a tar like substance to join overlapped metal walls.

Tin, steel, or copper, soldering should be fine as long as it is not used for food, the led in the solder will leach out.

The smaller the part the easier to solder.

Aluminum or stainless steel you need special equipment.
