Thanks guys,
I pretty much light tham all from the top now.The only time i dont is when I am just trying bake or simmer and want to get to coals more quickly. I modified my normal drilling pattern for TLUD and the top edge of the stove for a more even flame in alcohol mode. I want to order a starlyte or make something similar for my skinniest necked stove, the UL.
I was completely obcessed with the Tent Stove for a couple of days before I gave up. I have enjoyed watching all of everyones ideas and variations which I hope to put to use later.
During the search for tent stove components I discovered a couple of new types of Mugs. Both work really well and each has a few different features that I like.
The "legs" that you see are actually titanium tent stakes.
Another interesting findthis weekend in my dads old workshop was a box of .062 ti welding rod. This stuff is great. So strong, so thin... It works fantastic at staking the stove down and is a lot easier to insert into the ground in the hardpan here.

Nice find :D Are the legs put in just like a pegboard hook?

Don't give up on the woodburner for tents ;) keep looking for parts. :mrgreen:

aah! I have been juked by the login monster at least twice in the last few days.
The short version:
Yep I insert the stake and aim for an air hole with the crook end. the shape that works best is the one shown on the right of the three stakes in middle of this picture.

the other "spoke stakes" on the right are part of the windscreen assembly.

these instructions pages are outdated in several ways but I still use the basic concept.With the thinner ti rod I like to have an additional bend in the crook to put two parts of the stake in the dirt.

I have another whole page and a half of lighting instructions about half of which I can toss and write in a new portion regarding Top lighting. :geek:
