If I were to invert it on the pavement, I'd be able to stand on it and use it as a step stool, It's rugged

I want a picture of this !!! :lol: Would make a good promotional video ! :DP:

Good story!!!! :DBfire: Just for the fun of I took a "Cobalt" (regular) and put my total weight of 258 pounds onto it several times with out having it fail in any way. If I were to put it on it's side and step on it, I think it would crush. :roll:

When bull asked ti purchase one of these Cobalt for Heineken pots my mind was not engaged and said yes. I only had one, my original prototype that I tested and went on to ship it to a stovie in Texas and he then returned it after using it as a model for his design of a double walled stove. Today I lived up to my word that I would sell him one and sent it off to him. :) I no longer have any for sale :o I don't have any more. I got interested in staying focused on the regular one.

Ahh, it finally returned. Please don't step on it as I believe you promised that to some prankster. :DP: :DP: :lol: :DBfire: :DBfire: :lol: :DB: :DB:

I finally got back to doing more changes and perfecting the burn rate of this stove. I decreased the basic Cobalt body height and increased the pot stand height and added a fiberglass sleeve between pot stand and stove body to prevent fuel from being captured between the two. Initially the fuel was being super heated and would occasionally "pop" as the stove was being used. The sleeve has corrected that. There is fiberglass cloth between the two walls of the stove to aid in almost instantanious bloom.

I'm consistantly getting 2 cups of 70 degree water to boil using 3/4 ounce of Heet(yellow) fuel. Time is around the 8:15 average with flame out being around 9:30 or so. The tests were with a covered heineken pot. The enclosed photos show the flame pattern. The stove is top jetted with fewer jets from the original count.

I'll be making a dozen or so stoves to be available on ebay. And yes RR one will be sent to you as promised :DB:

As soon as I can I'll take some photos of the flame pattern under a 3 inch diameter aluminum mug. The flame stays pretty much confined to the bottom of the pot. I suspect I'll be able to get 2 cups to boil with 1/2 ounce of fuel. Ive gotten it to easily boil with 3/4 oz.

You can see the jet pattern in the photos.
