RR's September entry

Postby Ridgerunner » Sat Sep 20, 2008 2:10 pm

While on vacation this week, I found time to put together a woodburning stove for your consideration in the September entries. The stove is made from an old double walled aluminum baking sheet from the thrift store. The metal is thick but light. I am calling this one the "TriCastle Stove".

The walls are 5 inches long (not counting the tabs) and 4 inches in height
The stove weighs 2.65 ounces or 76 grams
It can also be used like a "Clickstand" for a Trangia or other alcohol stoves.

A couple other thoughts come to mind. I will replace the hardware cloth grate with ss when I come into some and I will make a hanging door for the "oven" opening when using with alcohol burner.

This stove was inspired from ideas of the following two stoves.

Deacon Darens "Neufeld MK1 Woodstove" ....14 ounces and

Nimblewill Nomad's "Little Dandy Wood Stove"....6 ounces

My thinking was to go with a 3 wall design to try and save on weight.Time will only tell how well the aluminum walls hold up. They are thick and burn time will usually be less than 10 minutes. So far so good ! :D

Sorry Daren, one too many brewskies ! :lol: Should have proof read it ! ;)

Being new to using a dremel tool to do anything but use the cut-off wheel and cut the doors out of my Purple martin Gourds, Skids suggestions on best bit for the job were real helpful. Here is the link:

Those bits can add up to a small chunk of change. :lol:

speaking of 'one too many' :roll: i can't believe i missed that. i read it of course, it just didn't stick.

sometime i'll dig out all my dremel junk and show you all the things that are available. i used a 1/8 round burr the other day to grind out the slots for the potstand legs on my little canister stove. controling the cutter is one of the hardest things to learn.

I love that little tool. I wish I had one of those $30 flex arms for better control. They can jump around at times. I look forward to your show and tell time. ;)

Really looks rugged and is performing well. You have used your dremel tool bits to their max. :D

What's inside the double walled baking sheet? Stove makers want to know :D
