Hey!!!!! good news :D

As of today I re-listed the Cobalt Blue and included the Ignition Wick into the stove assembly. Same low price, more user friendly.

Oh!!! another thing. For those of you that may be concerned about burning ink that's on the stove. The ink is FDA approved for food containers and is Eco Friendly. Have no fear!!! No harming the environment here :D

The cool fuel flask is also included in the package ;)

Thanks for the Cobalt Blues, Zelph. I took the short one and fired it up. Nice pattern on the Heine pot. The stove is solid and the ss pot support is firmly entrenched in the burner. Nice one piece design(kiss). I gave it a whirl with 1/2 ounce of Heet. The stove burned for 6 minutes but the 2 cups of water was just forming bubbles. I upped the fuel to 3/4oz. and repeated the process to get a rolling boil at the 7 minute mark and continue boiling until flameout at 9minutes 10seconds.A nice solid stove. I dropped it on the concrete and it took its first battle scar with a nice ding on the bottom edge but did not effect its performance and the ss pot support did not come loose. Nice job, Zelph ! ;)

I did a quick test in the garage, no windscreen. The stove will light with the pot in place and blooms right off that way. I got bubbles at 4:40, but no boil in 9 minutes with 3/4oz id Heet. Tried it again and it was the lack of windscreen that was the issue.

I got my boil without the windscreen in the garage. I will test it further !

Here is a pic of the nice flame pattern of the Cobalt Blue with my newly aquired 2 cup coffee pot.

Zelph, Im going to be picking up one of these stoves, is it cheaper to go thru ebay or thru the site here? Or is it the same price. I really like the idea that you came up with to keep the flame pattern so even. Good one :D.

Thank you for the compliments. It turned out to be a really nice working stove. I've recently made some out of 2.5 diameter bottles. No burn test yet.
