I was hoping to find something preconstructed in the dimensions I provided, maybe something like a ss salt shaker, provided it's drillable. Maybe my drill sucks, but I tried drilling through walmart's tiny ss cups from their kitchenware section without any success.
Welding is fusing the parent metal to itself. Sounds like you are talking about soldering instead, and yes that joint would lose strength at a much lower temp. I'm a bit confused though. Most stoves I've seen that, actually have mixing chambers, do not perform the combustion inside that chamber, but rather then rout the mixed gas to a combustion area.
SS is a bit tough on tools, more so than Al or Cu or even mild steel. What size holes are you drilling? 0.015" or 1/2"? A Dremil rotary tool and appropriate diamond bit might be more effective.
