I want a cone that will work primarily with an alcohol stove that's not of the TD variety. I think I could get one that fits snug on my Evernew .9L and breathes, but blocks wind with my SP 700. The main question - albeit poorly worded - is whether I can buy only the cone. I am (a) not an idiot, and (b) I have used LOTS of BP stoves. From sterno stoves as a kid (light for their day) to the mini stove and whisperlites in the 80's and 90's, and, nowadays, the giga power and a variety of alcohol stows since (cat can, beer can, trangia (none of which were very satisfactory)).
My general rule is - be able to touch the canister and hold on to it indefinitely at all times. My plan would not get any hotter than this and will work. I think I will make my own cone, though, if only the TD system is available. I want one that will fit in my .9ltr. low Evernew pot anyway.
Oh, and Dan Durston, thanks or the link. I should follow your lead. Your thread turned me on to Zelph and I am excited about the results. The cone question will be easy enough I answer, have you made your own yet? I am going to either buy or make one that cuddles my Evernew - if no supports it altogether - and works as a screen.
I read the thread linked to above when the OP posed the question. Cringe-worthy stuff. Definitely not me. Thanks for all the parental guidance, though. Forums of any sort are a funny place to hang. Big mix of knowledge abounds. Good advice and bad, field practitioners and "academics."
