He had an awesome pot collection. I guess from years of magazine reviews.

Thanks for the link!

Nice looking stove. Reminds me of a cross between a Clickstand and some of our woodburners. Look like 8 or 9 pieces....too many pieces...but I like it anyway. :lol:

Hmmm, I guess it's neat but I'm not that interested in it.

For long treks I would think that the top portion of a Bushbuddy could be used as a pot stand for an alcohol stove. For solid fuel the addition of a piece of foil placed under it would work too. The Bushbuddy Ultra only weighs 144.6 grams (5.1 oz) so adding an alcohol stove, a piece of foil, some solid fuel tablets and a bottle of alcohol would probably still be less than the weight of the Honey Stove alone.

Lets see, using my gear for this measurement:

Bushbuddy Ultra: 5.1 oz
Foil windscreen: 0.45 oz
Pepsi jet stove: 0.45 oz
Alcohol (several ozs): 4.9 oz
Fuel bottle: 0.65 oz
Esbit Tablet (x6): 3 oz
----------
Total weight: 14.55 oz

or

Honey Stove: 12.4 oz
Foil windscreen: 0.45 oz
Pepsi jet stove: 0.45 oz
Alcohol (several ozs): 4.9 oz
Fuel bottle: 0.65 oz
Esbit Tablet (x6): 3 oz
----------
Total weight: 21.85oz


Ok, I was wrong, all that stuff and the Bushbuddy is 2 ounces more than the Honey Stove alone.
Yeah, I know, go ahead and say it, I know you're thinking it... I'm a gram weenie. :oops:

I believe the Bushbuddy is a double walled woodburner. I think Zelph proved that a single walled woodburner is just as effiecient as the double walled stove and much lighter. Being a gram weenie, I would think you might give a go at a DIY woodburner. ;) :lol:

Indeed, the Bushbuddy is double walled! It burns wood and so does the Honey Stove. Are you suggesting that I just rip the inner wall out of a Bushbuddy to save weight? :lol: Now that you mention it, I saw some very nice plain metal cans at the store for putting paint in. A few holes around the bottom and a couple pegs up top would do the job I think.

The honey stove looks to be about the size of a can of peaches.

It shouldn't be too hard to knock one out.

Cheers!

It's a Honey of a pot collection :D

The stove sure is a puzzle type. Once assembled that's the way it stays. Stuff it in a sack and call it a stove :mrgreen:

having watched the video, and being a seller of a woodburning stove, i think i will just keep quiet about this honeypot stove.
