Wow! That's a fine piece of engineering. It's pretty obvious you're not just an ordinary hack working in your basement with hand tools.

You win, hands down!

thanks Ordin;

you're right, i'm a Sheet Metal Worker by trade. i have access to a complete custom metal working shop. i'm also an ameture machinist and have my own lathe. i'm going to buy a milling machine one of these days, so i don't have to shuttle projects back and forth from home to the shop.

If you don't mind, could I ask a few questions about your stove?

Dimensions?
Material?
How does it work? (and I'm going to assume you'll answer with a big grin)

The whole kit consists of the stove, 4 legs made from 3/4 EMT, and 3 sections of 3" x 2" exhaust tubing. Sorry I don't have an exact weight on it all, but I would venture that it's in the neighborhood of 8 lbs.

mind? not at all!

10.5" wide x 14.5" long x 12.25" high. 4" pipe diameter.

all 304 stainless steel. the top and bottom and door are 18 gauge. front, back, and sides are 20 gauge.

i have not fired the stove but i know from other stoves that i have built that it will work perfectly. in the pic above you can see the adjustable draft slider in the bottom of the door. i also made a spark screen that hangs over the opening with the door left open. some folks like to watch the fire. 8-)

i based the design very loosely on the Kifaru stoves. i've never actually seen a Kifaru, just pics on the 'net.

Reviewing this thread, I now remember ordin aryguy made a couple nice tent stoves. I wish I had a teepee erect in the yard :roll: :oops: . Zelph, did you order those poles you were talking about in 08? :lol: I wonder if some treated 2x4x12 would work. Then split them lengthwise to get two poles from each board and rasp the edges off each end. Back to the backburner! :oops:

His stove is a Rolls Royce of stoves. He should make them for a living.

No teepee in the works yet. It's on the drawing board.....................collecting dust :o :P
