Re: DIY old Jansport/Alpinelite w/ much smaller diameter tub

Commander Dan. Thanks much. Hands pretty good still. How would you rate its strength for assembling a backpack frame with no screws? Just for kicks, I might do a little bit of Boy Scout lashing with USGI boobie trap wire before I used this material. Good to talk with you . Already been up for an hou...

DIY old Jansport/Alpinelite w/ much smaller diameter tube

Re: EXhaust chamber forcing exhaust swirlto swirl

Dan, I sure hope you will post what you are getting rid of from you garage before you sell the stuff. I just love those old prototypes; they are history that I might be interested in buying a bunch. Glad you mentioned the ceramic cloth. I remembered I had some that I had planed to use under Coleman ...

Re: EXhaust chamber forcing exhaust swirlto swirl

Dan, Searching in your garage must be more fun than going to a museum. The flat wood stove gasket was very easy to silicon to the tall thin coconut juice pot BUT when I tried to get the part of the gasket to stand out perpendicular to the pot wall I realized that it does not want to do that since it...
