My late entry for July

Postby zelph » Mon Aug 04, 2008 7:26 pm

This is a good one :D

It boils 2 cups of water with 1/2 ounce of denatured.


I used a battery terminal cleaner case to make this stove.(bottom half) Figerglass Exhaust Wrap is what I used inside to hold the fuel. It has a stainless steel lever that raises and lowers the wick to vary the flame height. The lever store inside the wick for storage. It weighs 43 grams and holds 1 ounce of fuel.

Here a some photos of a stove(Megawick) using the battery terminal cleaner case:

Ingenious design. You went back a long way in the archieves to find that one. You were thinking outside the box on that one. ;)

Thankyou, if only the pot support was 3/16 stainless steel mesh instead of galvanized.

I should get an inexpensive video cam and make some videos of these stoves and show how they function. My camera is archaic ;)

WallyWorld....$60 DXG 4mpeg digital video camera.. but will need an additional memory card to record videos much more than a few minutes. So....another $15 for a 1 GB card. ;) also has macro focusing ;) price is right for us bottom feeders. :lol:

Daren, it is fairly simple with high speed internet service.

1) take your video with your digital videocamera
2) load it onto your computer
3) go to your media hosting site (photobucket, youtube, etc.) and upload your
video from your computer to your account. (keep in mind, photobucket allows
only up to 5 minutes and 100mb. free)
tip: because I use dial up, I load the video to a flash card and take it to a computer
that has high speed. It will still take awhile to load.
4)The just copy and paste the URL for your video on bplite using the URL button at the top of your posting page

I hope this helps---ask more specific questions if needed and we will try to talk you through. ;)
