Re: TrailSafe Backpacking Stove

Looks like a good design. What struck me is the restrictions imposed on fuel by the Boy Scouts. Geez, soon only dulled axes will be allowed, and no knots that could constrict.

Re: silicone bowl for Imusa mug/pot

I think this is a great idea.
I'll be doing something similar...
I drink coffee and my girlfriend drinks tea.
I will boil water in my 700ml cup using the silicon bowl as a lid, then I'll pour about half the water in the silicone bowl for my coffee

Re: Heet Powered Kelly Kettle

Silicon roast ties would do the trick

Re: Laminar Flow Titanium Windscreen

I think you guys are onto something... Now that you've pushed the efficiency of the stoves so high, we need to look at maximising the transfer of heat to the contents of the pot. It's surprising how much a brushed finish increased the transfer. A year or so ago, I bought an old Sigg aluminum bottle ...

Competition or Collaboration?

I have been a member for about a year now and contributed a few times. I just re-read a few posts and was struck by the perceived need to pit one stove designer against another (i.e. Jon, Tinny, Zelph) I thought the main reason for having forums of this sort is to foster collaboration in order to be...

Re: The Green Machine

As the green machine needs a pot stand, I was wondering if any of you have experimented with stands other than the chicken wire?
- clickstand? http://www.clikstand.com/p_clikstands.html
- westwind?
- calderacone?
Thanks for your input.

Re: The Green Machine

if it had a stand like brasslite could not get at the cap to get off must make a stand just to sit on it Good point oops. So there seems to be three ways to go with a 3-high hardware cloth potstand : -you make a closed one that sits on the groove just inside the top lip of the stove, -one that is p...

Re: The Green Machine

I do like the design of this slow-and-steady-wins-the-race stove. A 1.5 hour + burn time and the low heat output is great for someone like me that that cooks, rather than boils. It seems to me that he flame pattern would work well with those heat-grabber pots, like Primus Eta, or Optimus, with the f...

Re: "Ridgeline" lightweight pot series

As to your question of two things I like to cook that need simmering. Well here's 3 : - whole grain rice - lentils - kidney beans or other pulses I usually -soak them an hour or so, either in a nalgene type bottle or in the pot if I've stopped for the day -bring to a boil and simmer for 15-20 min -f...
