Etowah stove

Postby zelph » Tue Sep 25, 2007 10:25 pm

Anyone out there have and use one of these stoves?

What is inside the little can? Why are they so popular on the AT?

The other question is: How to make one yourself?

One of these.

One of these.

And one of these. ;)

I have a question about the cross piece pot support on top of the stove.
You see how it extends over the side of the tin. How much overhang is useful to it's design? When does the overhang become useless? When will the pot tip the stove over when moved to one side? How far can it go off center before overturning.

As much as corresponds to your pot diameter.

When does the overhang become useless?


When it's protruding past the outer edge of the pot.

When will the pot tip the stove over when moved to one side? How far can it go off center before overturning.


Lots of variables in that equation. The tipping axis is the three inch diameter 'windscreen' outer can, not the crosspieces themselves.
