dual windscreen/stove? on 08/12/2012 08:38:33 MDT Print View

I had a thought and wondered if such a thing existed. I was wondering if it was possible to use a thin and flexible long strip of titanium that had 1/2" holes at the top and bottom as both a half circle windscreen for an alcohol stove and to join it on itself or create an arc that is 7/8 of a circle to use it as a wood stove for a wide bottomed pot? And if so who could make such a thing or where could I get the materials? Thank you.

Could work, but needs some fleshing out. The height of the screen may not work well as a wood stove (too tall). Maybe tent stakes can be used to provide adjustment. Wood stoves require huge mouths to feed them, which may not work well when used as a screen.

Titanium would be the material of choice, but for experimenting, nothing beats shim steel, about $15 for 6" x 120". .0025" or even .003" would be my choice, depending on your pot size.
