A local kitchen supply store will probably have various sized stainless bowls that could be of use.

I used a pair of aluminum milk pans with the handles cut off.

How do you secure the transformer inside? Then how do you mount the whole thing on the chassis?

Mount them with the standard mounting apparatus and then epoxy the pans over the top. Make certain to roughen the mating surfaces before applying the epoxy.

I found some fan ducting that was useful, but can't find the reference in B&Q any more. I'm in UK.

Here is what I did.
For fixing the vessel, I put 3 holes on the bottom near the perimeter and put nut-bolts to the chassis bottom. The torroid being curved at the outside has gap at the bottom.

I just placed it in the container and put some support with heat tolerant materials.

For fixing the cover, I had these straight ss plates with two threaded holes that were used to support transistors onto the heatsink. Just put one hole on the vessel and another on the lid.
