Tinsmith

A tinsmith, sometimes known as a whitesmith, tinner, tinker, or tinplate worker, is a person who makes and repairs things made of light-coloured metal, particularly tinware. By extension it can also refer to the person who deals in tinware. A whitesmith may work with tin, pewter, or other materials. A whitesmith who specializes in pewter work is known as a pewtersmith. Unlike blacksmiths, whitesmiths do the majority of their work on cold metal. The term is also applied to metalworkers who do only finishing work – such as filing or polishing – on iron and other "black" metals. Whitesmiths fabricate items such as tin or pewter cups, water pitchers, forks, spoons, and candle holders and it was a common occupation in pre-industrial times.
