Simon Stove

Postby Username75 » Sun Dec 19, 2010 5:30 am

This is the Simon stove, also
safesport used to sell itunder their name.
it comes with a leatherette Pouch with a 1
page instruction sheet.
these burn hotter than most alcohol stoves.
made for cross Country bike trecking.
Burn time up to 45 Minutes.
btw.
i just bought a totaka stove on ebay from england
for less than 20 bucks.
its a stainless steel super Trangia, bigger than the biggest trangia.
burns almost 28 minutes, with better fuel efficiency than the Trangia
made in viet name by the same people that make the Brass Pheonix
stove, of the same size as the tatoka

Tatonka....means Buffalo in lakota
not tatoka i first typed
sorry sam.
I need to drink less Alchy and more cooking with it.
It's not too late to Incite the Canadians to invade us.
They hate rude.........and we can certainly do Rude.
Then when they drive their armed Zamboni's accross,
the Borders from the frozen north.
We simply give up.......Surrender.
Sure at first they will Humiliate us by making us
sing "Oh Canada"....but soon as We please them We will be forced
to belt Out "the Maple leaf Forever" and even though the force us,
to say Eh! after every 3 Sentences,and think Zed is the last letter in our
New canadian language....They mean us no harm
Then all our problems will be solved, and we will
escape our own lunacies.

Yes I did send You a box of Altoid Sour Tins, back in the dark Ages
the camera is a Kalloflex.
it is a Medium format Rolli copy with the Controls
put on the right side not like a Rolli
it's better built than the Rolli
I've had mine since it came out
it was then $250.00 cheaper than the Rolli
with better optics

Don't get Me wrong Rolleis are very Nice, and
Much lighter than my Kalloflex, most Rollei
Copys are exact knock offs
What Kalloflex did is rearange the controls
easier and more intruistic to use.
the parameters are exactly the same.
but too heavy for long hiking
then I take my Rollei 35,or
one of My minolta hi-matic 7 SII's
Drat 16 mm film is no longer available
for my now Useless Minolta 16 II's

They used to say the Petri Color 35 had a better control layout setup than the Rollei 35..unfortunately the lenses weren't as good..Reminds me.. I have to list one of the Rollei B35s I've got and never used..thanks for the reminder.. :roll: :lol:

Tangerine, to be exact. I'm working on a design to use them all up. Do you use the burner I sent? Did you consume the Altoid product to collect the tins or get them on ebay? That's a lot of tins :o I made a prototype with one of them that had the pot support pop up when the lid was removed, remember that one?

My little finePix by fugifilm meets my technical needs :lol:
