DarenN, you guys may have noticed a decided lack of tent stove posts from me.
anything i would have built would have been disqualified for use of tools, equipment, and processes unavailable to the average DIYer. i didn't even bother starting a stove. i have an idea for a small, round, S/S tent stove that i was going to build for the contest. but it will require a fair bit of tig welding; as well as some specialized forming equipment. i may still build it anyways.
I hope you do.
I like this vertical arrangement, loading the wood and lowering the stove, as well as, having a door for adding wood.
The solid sides stove design is a requisite, for this, but this TLUD is very innovative for the tent-stove idea.
I had stuck to the roll-up design concept, moving to the vertical stove with a damper.
I see ridgerunner has got the small diameter "stovepipe" working. Nice.
zelph, I did recover my pulk, my winter gear, and I am set for this season.
I wish I had a tent and tent-stove ready. That Ray Mears video looks so inviting.
I went "pricey" and heavy with a brass latch and brass round-hinges, no Dremel cut-off tool or more to proceed with my draft. I also got "stuck" on my interior shelf idea. I know what I want to do, but I did not find a slotted strip to slide in the "shelf" during assembly in the field.
I am still hoping for a collapsible stove, but these designs look backpackable in a plastic bear container.
For few entries, there are great ideas here.
