the scroll stove (a blatent copy)

Post by sudden » Fri Apr 23, 2010 2:58 pm

OK, I had this idea! It's a copy of sorts of zelph's super stove.

Sorry for the photo quality and build quality. I made this with scissors and needle nose pliers.
Also, the photo of the scroll is upside down (I'll do better next time).

1. Take a zelph windscreen (corrugated) and roll it out on the table.
2. Fold it in half (i.e. fold it so the hole height is now half of what it
started at).
3. Place wick material in the fold (just short of the ends of the ribbon).
4. Seal the ends of the ribbon (I just crimped them, very crude)
5. I also crimped in different directions so I could connect the ends
together.
6. Roll it up (I rolled it into a scroll just for fun and so it would have
a name).
7. Fill and light.

You could probably do this with non-corrugated foil since you can make it
any shape you want under the pot (for strength).
I have no idea how well something like this would hold up but it sure is
fast to make.
Also, you might not need the holes if you folded it up like the original
super stove (one lip higher than the other).

I like the idea......innovative, ouside the box thinking :D that's where new stoves come from :DBfire:

Put some fuel in it and put the fire to it!!!! We want to see it heat water, we want eye candy :DBfire:

It was lit under the pot but my camera used its flash.

I need to get some fiberglass tonight (didn't have any when I built it so I used cotton cut from a nail pouch).

It did seem to burn well and supported the pot and 2 cups of water no problem. It did not come to a boil. I think I need another wrap of wick to get enough alcohol stored (the automotive fiberglass will probably work better).

I have just enough of my original windscreen left to make another 1 or 2 of them. I'll try to make a video of it burning this weekend.

My first video.
I tried uploading it first but it was too big (still learning how to attach things).
This time I will try to link to it.

This is the original stove with the original cotton wick instead of carbon. It leaks but I'm not going to fix it for the video. I just wanted to show the concept. The idea came from zelphs superstove and uses a zelph windscreen.

Now I need to find a cupcake die. I remember always finding an aluminum cupcake wrapper in the box of paper ones you buy from the store. Imagine forming two of them with heavier aluminum and putting some carbon felt between the two.

Exciting times!!! :D Video turned out great. Nice content, loves those flames :D

I saw somewhere that a burner was made out of aluminum cupcake shells, pot support was separate.

You may be able to find some pastry molds at Bed Bath and Beyond that would serve your purpose for this stove. ;)

Will check out BB&B. Thanks ridgerunner. I could probably be less aggressive with the corrugations and still pull it off. I just need something cheap and easy to form one on.

I'll try to find info on the cupcake stove you remembered zelph. No sense re-inventing the wheel. It's still a superstove in the end, just an idea I want to explore more with foil instead of cans.
