Will a tuna can fit in there?Might not.You may need something a bit smaller because of the asbestos ring assembly...Maybe take the asbestos portion out.Mine's too mint to mess with it...

I'll have to look at the stove a second time for wood burning now that I've gone to top lighting batch loads.


Wow, I like that idea and I think it would definitely work as the firebox is probably as big as some you have tested. ;)

Bumble bee makes a Lunchable Tuna Salad, that comes with a itty bitty can
about 2,8 ounces, and crackers.
that can will work just fine.
then place the Small Trangia or find a small stove like zelf makes and place on the upside down tuna salad can.
I recomend and empty such can

Yes, those are nice size steel cans. They would hold up well if used as an alcohol burner if used to start wet wood under adverse conditions. The wood be bottom lit using the alcohol as a tinder starter. The little can would be reusable, not melt like an aluminum cat food can. Good choice Sam, thanks for bringing up that particular brand. I ate a lot of those Lunchables just to get the cans :mrgreen:

It's Stainless Steel about 3 in diameter and 4 inches hig, with a steel Holder if fits on
do a google on Simon Stove.
it burns hot and 22 minute burn Time.
it was designed for cross Country Bike trips.
it comes in a leatherette pouch
it's also distributed by safesport, but not anymore drat it
it's a super heavy duty Pepsi Stove
i have a couple i love as much as My Jiffy Heat Stoves.
So if your cooking for a group it's a great stove, but it evaporates any left over alcohol
by the time it cools.
I use it to cook Eggs,and Hamburger for breakfast,
with time to Cook Rice and Instant coffee on Smaller hikes
in a 4 inch Steel Frying pan, the Prospector pans.
they are a find for collectors.
There is a Stove site review on the net
and seldom come up on Ebay......but oops56 always outbids me drat it all
but even so i wish him and everyone else
a great and blessed holiday Season.
...mmmm what kinda quanza gift for zelph
should I get....maybe a box of altoid tins
(empty of cource & a Lump of Coal)
