Re: couple of metal questions

I am already learning something. Terminology. Really appreciate you taking the time to answer. I have been researching welding but couldnt find any info on working with wire or wire mesh. Here is the welder. Its pretty old but it still worked last summer. http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y120/cadyak...

couple of metal questions

I am constantly amazed with all of the metalwork that you guys are doing with with your stove projects. I am pretty inexperienced and dont have many tools so I really appreciate any helpful advice. I was wondering if anyone had experience in working with titanium foil? I got some of the .005 thickne...

Re: BudLyte Super Stove

Very nice. I need me one of those. You can never have too many. :D I had gotten used to storing my windscreen rolled up with a small bottle of fuel inside the stove. (one of the cool features of the original superstovel) it looks like my tinder holder will fit perfectly in the bottom of the new one ...

Re: Stove trouble, need a simmer stove.

I remembered later that Zelph made a video featuring a simmer ring on his Super Stove that you may want to think about too.
He has a white gas version of that stove too.

Re: Stove trouble, need a simmer stove.

I have a msr dragonfly that has only been fired up a couple of times in the garage. It is essentially brand new although I got it probably 4-5 years ago. Also a few msr aluminum fuel bottles and a whole sack of replacement o-rings for the bottles. I dont really use gas stoves any more for backpackin...

Re: Cyclone Stoves: Part 1

I wonder if the cyclone effect could be produced using a cone shaped thin stainless steel outer portion? It would be neat to see if by modifying the holes and/or adding more holes if you get that kind of convection. I have some really thin cups that I could put more holes in for fun. As it is the ho...

Re: The Fire Mug

Here is my backup stove setup for a few of the 16oz FIREMUGs. Zelph was nice enough to let me test one of the few top jetted cobalt stoves that he created. It works great. I am hoping to convince him to make more of them. It seems to work better than anything else because the flame pattern is direct...
