Your input and knowledge of stoves along with your innovation is a great addition to these threads.
I also note that you have significant, shall I call it: "philosophical differences" with Tinny that I suspect color your reviews of his stoves.
I am curious as to how you know he only does a "few bench tests" before he markets a new stove? From his web site it is clear that he usually field tests his new creations and his designs often seem to go through several iterations before they are put up for sale.
"The tubing will fail" is a noteworthy observation if he were using cheap plastic tubing, but he says he is using high temperature silicone tubing and his positioning low on the stove does not appear to be in any more "close proximity to the flame" than your metal tube. Since the metal tube (which should conduct heat rather well) is cool enough to hold with your bare hand
I would assume that his tubing would be ok, too.
Tinny's stove uses an internal wick, made in America not in Sweden and not proprietary, but it is less likely to spill if the "bump" scenario happens. Still I would agree that that is a weak point for his stove. But let's face it all these stoves have the potential to be a hazard to "Joe Public."
All in all, I like your stove and it certainly has potential. I have purchased a StarLyte from you as well as a couple of stoves from Tinny. I have frequented bplite.com also and have really liked some of your other designs, but I also think Tinny has some great designs, too.
I wish you luck with your new stove and thanks for sharing it with us.
