z, I have a couple of these and I was thinking of squishing the top of one into an oval shape to better heat a canteen cup.
I really like these stoves but I'm not giving up my starlytes anytime soon. But I thought I'd check to see if you've tried this before possibly wrecking a perfectly good stove.

Any of you other guys (or girls) have any recommendations on the perfect canteen cup stove?
Thanks,
Steve

I would think a potstand the shape of the canteen cup will make the burner adjust to the cup or the edge of the stand..say an elongated spam can,canned salmon can or some other one closer to the shape of your cup.The burner's flame will adjust to the shape of whatever it is in where the oxygen is at the edge of the potstand itself rather than the round burner.Try an elongated potstand instead of bending a burner..Punch holes around the top(and bottom) edge of a spam can..set you canteen on that..and get a free meal with it.. :mrgreen:

I have the British military made stainless steel cup and stove kit with stainless steel lid. This unit is rock solid and the guy on tv survives with it where ever he goes. Bear what's his name :roll:

A friend of mine up in British Colombia is testing a Companion Burner that I designed for him to fit under the cup. My tests came out great for as heavy as the cup is. It's not for gramm concious folks like oops56 :mrgreen:

This Is what I call a companion burner, all that is needed is a pot support to be called a stove................right?

Thanks for the reply folks. I have a couple of the crusader set ups myself. I saw the stand that oops mentioned on the net once and was never able to find it again. If I'm thinking of the right one, it kinda looks like a 'one-holer' outhouse, the cup going into a hole shaped like the bottom of the crusader cup. I'll have to look around again.

I still prefer the USGI cup though. Maybe I haven't used the crusader enough.

The "copperish thingie" is Zelph's copper wick which allows lighting without burning your fingers ;)
