Default Lengthening a Stockpot?


I'm still hoping to resurrect Frankenbrew a small BM type build and for all the tedious and usual reasons I want to use my second Burco, sealing the MP with a cam lock.

To use the cam lock method I need a MP with a bottom the obvious candidate is a stockpot but I'm having problems finding one the right shape.
I want one 25 or 26 or 27 cm dia by about 30cm tall I've found none with those proportions. Most are quite a bit shorter which isn't good I need to max the volume.

I've thought of cutting a pot round a inserting a collar with silicone seals and lots and lots of bolts I think it would take the pressure but it would be hideous even by my standards.

If I could expand the mouth of one pot a little I could jam a second in there and get heigh that way, but how would I do that?

Any ideas or alternatives would be very much appreciated. Its a ghetto build so price is important

Many Thanks. Aamcle
