New stove on 03/08/2008 22:53:58 MST Print View

Recently I made a new stove out of a travel size shaving cream canister. I designed it specifically for use with a narrow pot (keg pot). I got it to boil 2 cups of cold tap water in 16 minutes with a total burn time of 26 minutes on 1 once of fuel. It will also prime in about 30 seconds and does not require a priming pan. The heat is concentrated under the pot with almost no flame going up the side of the keg pot. In fact you can make a circle with your hands around the keg pot and they will not get burned. Also the keg pot sits directly on the stove so there is no pot stand to fuss with. Only drawback is the base of the stove is a little over an inch so it's not the most stable. Should be able to make it smaller so it will bring 2 cups of water to a boil on 0.60 once of fuel. Granted it is a little slow for boil times but when you're enjoying nature's TV time isn't really that important. Will post some pictures later if anyone is interested.

Yeah show us! I've been racking my brain for weeks trying to figure out a design that will let me actually handle my heineken pot without needing to add several layers of fiberglass or silicone for insulation. I wanna see!
