Zelphs October stove.

Postby zelph » Tue Oct 02, 2007 4:29 pm

My entry for the month is this one:

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. Have not made any test boils yet.

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

I like your idea , Zelph. My only concern would be the stability of the stove as narrow and tall as it is, especially in windy conditions.

If I filled the base with concrete I think that will stabilize it :D

You bring up a good point about stove weight and design. Recent design by G Carr, the gramm weinie stove is super light and small in diameter. Seems to me it would blow away easily while trying to fill it with fuel. I design stoves around the current trends. Folks are becoming interested in smaller stoves. I'm influenced by peoples needs and wants. I personally prefer an open wood fire, it's a pyro thing :mrgreen: . The globe is looking as if it will become my open fire of choice. If Tony enters his stove and billy I think my chances of being in the club will go out the window. :D Actually some one could nominate his stove and it would be entered. He living in Austrailia does'nt allow him to be here that often. He may not see what I wrote in his thread :)
