About Me "When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely in your thoughts advanced to the state of science, whatever the matter may be."
Sir William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) 1883

Re: Re: 2 Person Lightweight double wall tent
"Well that is under 2.2kgs. That has room for 2 people, and a camera (about the size of a day pack). Also area for packs, so they are not in the rain. Needs to be reasonably spacious, truly r...

Needle valve
Useful stuff there, thanks for that. I'm thinking about regulating the liquid flow using a needle valve (from a RC model engine) just before a pre-heat tube. This is the arrangement on my Co...

Re: Re: Re: Hybrid Stove

Re: Wow
The black box is plastic, ABS I think. The back is 1mm aluminium, to dissipate the heat from the LED. The weak point at the moment is the switch - a 3 position slide switch for off/low/high - which...
