Re: The BudLyte Alcohol Stove

The Budlyte is still under construction. Photos of the compression dies are available on the new forum thats under construction. None of the jetting yet. I ran out of bottles :roll: If the new forum is "under construction" how are the pictures "available"...Or did you mean "will be available". I ha...

Hmmmm. Which means that you will rely on a fairly carefully measured charge if the center is not also filled with wick material. This will limit the burn time somewhat from what it could be. But true enough, it will not spill.

Re: The BudLyte Alcohol Stove

That's fire pouring out of the stove. Now that there is funny, I don't care who you are. It's a STOVE...how much cookin' could you do if fire DIDN'T shoot out of it. :mrgreen: As a design engineer, would you recall a stove that is reacting the way Grizzlyhikers stove is reacting? Probably not. thou...

Re: Bios and old fuel

That video tells me two things. Well two major things anyways. 1) The alleged "problem" is not as serious as some would have us believe. and 2) Preheat the stove hot enough before putting a wet pot on top and the outer walls can get cooled off fast from the water dripping down onto the stove. Cool t...

Re: The BudLyte Alcohol Stove

Oh well. I thought it was worth the attempt. I was wrong. WAY too much hyperbole and knee jerk sound bites here for any sort of rational discussion. I think we all agree that it's not an old fuel problem. Nope. I do not think that that has been shown at all. It's a design flaw that is a health and f...

Re: "Fancyfeast Stove" Updated Sept 12 2007

This thread is another of the reasons I decided to register here. This is most like the stove I have been using lately. Difference being that I use a wick stove made from a Life Savers tin (with a section of lamp rod for a wick holder) which sits in the middle of a tuna can, surrounded by fine meshe...

Re: Look like lots of info

LOL. I hope I end up with an "Edit" button in the other topic forums soon. Cause I can get all kinds of eat up with Typonese spellings without one. :mrgreen:

Look like lots of info

And if I don't flamed out of the place because I found the MBDC site first (and I'm not going to take sides in the feud) maybe I can learn to make some effective camping gear. As well as sharing some of my engineering experience. :mrgreen:

Re: The BudLyte Alcohol Stove

Hidden in the latest video, spoken extremely fast at 1:50 is the admittance that zelph was 100% right about the distance between the inner and outer wall so he now puts in 2 inner holes. He still maintains it is a fuel issue rather than a design flaw, yet a small redesign apparently fixes the probl...
