Re: Stanley Cookpot

A GSI Glacier stainless cup fits on the bottom, and a Nalgene 32 oz HDPE water bottle (not the hard Tritan ones) will fit inside. Then it all tucks nicely into a 10 x 4 molle water bottle pouch. I've seen pics where people set it in the fire and the green tab on the lid burns off right away, so if y...

Re: Windscreen Pot Support

Looks great! Did you make the hinges yourself, or cut the windscreen down from an existing product? I've always it would make the world of pot stands and windscreens more exciting if we could make simple, lightweight hinges.

Re: Silicone mug lids?

Those look ok. Hope to find some silicone lids in a store somewhere. On line I've seen a few different sizes, so there may be one for larger solo pots. Maybe the trend will catch on, and they'll be everywhere in a few months.

Silicone mug lids?

While walking through sprawlmart the other day, I saw some ceramic coffee mugs with silicone lids. Another attempt to get people to 'go green' and stop using so many paper coffee cups. Good idea. I scrounge a lot of hiking mugs/pots from thrift stores, building cozies for them and scrounging lids th...

Re: Group Volcano Stove Build

What if the main chimney was made out of a double walled stainless thermos? Saw one this morning in a thrift store. Pain to work with, but would last longer. I guess it would add a lot to the weight, though. I recently bought an old monster thermos with a glass insert. The outer shell is pretty big:...

Re: Group Volcano Stove Build

From the website: http://www.bioenergylists.org/stovesdoc/Still/Rocket%20Stove/Principles.html "1.) Insulate, particularly the combustion chamber, with low mass, heat resistant materials in order to keep the fire as hot as possible and not to heat the higher mass of the stove body." I'm ge...

Re: Wine Cooler Stoves

I've seen those double walled wine coolers in the thrift store, and they're very nice. I made a stove out of a shorter ice bucket, and it works well, but a wine bottle cooler might have a touch more draft. Make lots of holes. Consider cutting slots with an angle grinder or a dremel cut off tool. htt...

Re: Stainless stove problem

You'd have better luck with an aluminum bottle. Those thin al bottles heat up easily, allowing the fuel to vaporize and stay lit. Plus they're easier to work and drill than stainless. Can you scrounge a Bud bottle or maybe an hairspray (or other cosmetic) spray bottle?
