>This is my latest liquid feed canister stove, it is a made from MSR Pocket Rocket bits and a Kovea Eagle stove, in its current form it weighs 194.1g (6.8oz). The stove is different to my others as the valve is between the preheat tube and jet,
Rocking! I love the inverted Pocket Rocket legs! Although I found them a bit bendy myself.
Yep, that is where the valve ought to be in the next generation of liquid-feed canister stoves.
I have some versions I have been working on myself, but I want to do a bit more work on them before displaying them. Making my own valve systems (rather than reusing one) is a bit more tricky than expected - they need some rather fine machining to be able to shut right off.
I reckon the icing up problem will go away like this, as long as the valve on the canister is opened up fully.
