the ones that are just a little thicker dont have the deformation problem when drilling the holes :geek:
this one weighs just under 3 oz with potstand and no inner mug. The inner for this stove however is a great coffee mug that will not dribble or leak when you turn it up. Currently my favorite.

cadyak,

You have moved your stove from the realm of functional to artistic. I like the look of that :)
Nobody could ever guess that you have a complete woodstove setup in the cup holder of your vehicle :)

cadyak, that drilling pattern put me in mind of a ultralightweight bicycle components, which I have always thought beautiful. I like beauty and technology.

Maybe consider function and beauty, in the next and the next...

Dan..for you..

Drywall metal stud electrical punch cuts a 15/16" hole..shown with the maximum reach up into the cup(1-7/16" below the bottom edge of the holes)..5 holes punched in approximately 30-40 seconds all together.I punched three interlocking holes,than punched out the little triangles between them..cuts pretty clean.I could punch a couple lower ones for a bigger hole..in about another 15-20 seconds...Only one small dent on the right hole punched but I was rushing things.i should have taken my time. :roll: .add about 10 more seconds to do it right... :lol:

Does it cut easy? Do you think the cutter will last for at least 100 holes?

Havent found any real market for the Firemugs yet, but if there was one, It would be really nice to be able to go that fast.
Most take over an hour and some take two to make with the marking, the drilling, the cutting, the filing, & the sanding. I know it would be easier too if I didnt use the 1/4" mesh for the potstands but I like it better and it is less prone to catch sticks as you jam them in the top..
