Just Another Alcohol Stove kit on 10/19/2011 17:59:45 MDT Print View

This is the alcohol stove kit I use. I can't weigh everything, but I think the kit all together is about 5 or 6 ounces.

Everything fits neat and tidy

The paperclips are used to weigh the wind-screen down so it doesn't just fly away. I could drop these, but I think it makes the whole thing a lot sturdier and adds only minimal weight.

I used two lengths of guitar string (the smallest strings) to make a handle that doesn't get hot and allows me to easily transfer the pot to the cozy.

The string handle folds over onto the side of the pot for storage

simpler cone closure on 11/01/2011 13:06:09 MDT Print View

James,

Have a look around for pictures of my cone clone script, as I use a slot & tab joint that would replace the wire closures you've used; no weight, and nothing to lose.

There are a few images on BPL threads regarding 'clones'.
