Doh. I traced the canteen cup on paper but got tied up at home. The drawing and measurements are sitting at home on my desk.

It is true to size. You can print and use to however you see fit.

Looks like a smashed stove :D ............Works like a smashed stove :D .....................It's simply smashing!!!!!

It should work nice under the canteen cup.........nice idea :idea:

How long does it take for the flame to heat the burner so that the flame front follows the contour of the rim?

They usually have them for sale on ebay. Just for the fun of it make the burner the same shape as the canteen :D

How about using a Spam can????? :idea:

JT, i'm sorry to not have responded sooner. I think this is what you are looking for. The burner tray is about 3 inches high and the bottom inside is raised about a quarter inch. ;)

This pic will give you a better idea of the bottom configuration. Part of it is raised and a portion is low for an esbit tab. There are holes for drafting. Nice piece of kit! ;) I would have swore the cup was steel as it is heavier than the base and a different color but a magnet would not stick to it or the handles so it must be aluminum. PM sent your way. ;)

shit! i was out in the yard making a fire. :(
stainless steel also will not hold a magnet.
poorer grades of s/s might hold one but most decent grades will not. your canteen cup looks like good s/s.
