THAT's the name of the product I read about in another blog. Nice to be a member here. Good practical stuff.

Saw those at ACE hardware, but didn't bite. Will be nice to see how it goes for you.

Darn! Just recalled that I replace my oven's seal not 9 months ago. If I had only been aware of wick materials, I would have an answer to its usefulness already.

The wick Zelph is using is carbon felt? I thought it is asbestos.

Carbon felt was found at Home Depot in the tool section where they sell propane torches....go there first. Fiberglass cloth and muffler wrap at your local automotive stores. I use muffler wrap in the Super Stoves (non asbestos)(fiberglass)

Bill Ballowe, maker of that stove, likes that comparison of the stoves. :D I'll have to do one with the "GoTo" stove and the White Box. The video is a clear example how the addition of the correct fuel absorbing material helps in the manner of how a stove will perform. The white box is a free radical burn machine just like the SuperCat stove and that's okay. Both have there place in the lineup of stoves.

Thanks for the info. I never thought of the muffler wrap. Great idea. Since I am a huge fan of winter hiking, the wick style makes the most sense to me. Oh goodie.......another idea to play with! Nothing brings out my inner mad scientist like a new stove idea! (insert evil laugh here) :twisted:

Have at it!!!!

Word here in the mid west is that anyone from out west gets lost easily when they come into the prairie states. without a mountain range to look at they're disoriented. Is that true? :D
