Re: Does pot size matter

Hi Zelph, Hi Tony!!! Good to see you :D By now you have a nice tan and 500 trail miles to your good. We are having a mild summer this year, it has been very nice, I no longer chase a good suntan as I did when I was younger, skin cancer is a major problem here in Australia, and I am not immune from t...

Re: Does pot size matter

Hi all at bplite, It has been a while since I last posted, I am still playing with stoves but not as much as I used to, life has been very interesting and busy lately. As for pot size vs stove size I have done a lot of work trying to see if I can come up with a quantitive figure with alcohol stoves....

Re: Flame profiler

I've been dreaming about an infra red laser heat sensing gun mounted above a steel plate to profile a flame. It has an infra red camera attachment for still shots and a video for night time viewing. :ugeek: !!!! I have thought about doing the same but decide to try the profiler instead. Whoa!!!! yo...

Re: Flame profiler

Hi Zelph, Ahhhh!!! 2 dimensions are much better :D Very nicely done Tony. Thanks for taking on a scientific approach to something we have all wondered about at one time or another. The boundry layer has always intrigued me. Can we safely say that all the heating is done by radiation and none by cond...

Re: Flame profiler

I have done some more development on my flame profiler and now I can do 2D profiles and I thought some other stovies might be intersted in the results. http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g109/tbeasly/Probelength.jpg This first graph is of three 1D runs on a JetBoil stove with the probe tip flush with...

Re: Flame profiler

Hi Zelph, Yes, that's odd, to see such a low temperature in the center of the pot. It would indicate a much longer time to boil, correct? I only finished making the mid stove yesterday, I have not tested it for fuel use usage yet I will be doing that tomorrow and I will let you know how it goes. I a...

Re: Flame profiler

Hi Zelph, That's very good news, extremely glad to hear that Thanks, I am very lucky there are many people much worse off than me. Your profiler seems to be working well, congratulations on the design. It still needs some development but it looks like it will show some good information Does the GW s...

Flame profiler

Hi all at bplite, I have not posted for a while as I have not been well, I have had a bit of a battle with secret men’s business cancer, some good news is that my prognosis is looking good and even though I still have some healing to go I am getting back to normal life. Now for the important stuff. ...

Killer magpie

In Australia we do not have bears or big cats to worry about when bushwalking, other than a few deadly snakes and killer saltwater crocodiles in the far north, bushwalking in OZ is relatively safe. But in our spring the local magpies can get very aggressive, this usually happens in or near towns and...
