Tried a few and have not found one that fits well yet.

MYOG with Ti foil on 12/29/2013 21:37:53 MST Print View

You can make a very lightweight and functional lid with Ti foil - you can order some from Ti goat. Use aluminum heat tape in the center in place of a knob.

It would take me about one minute to cut one out of titanium foil, if only there was a precise dimension.

It is similarly quick to cut one out of carbon fiber sheet, and it is probably lighter.

Probably not as light as what Bob is suggesting but Four Dog Stove makes a titanium lid which will fit your mug.

I can't imagine why anybody would want a wooden knob on the top of a metal pot lid. It would certainly keep it from packing tightly, and it would likely get broken off after a while.

I've used an inch of silicone string, curled to make an open loop and then epoxied onto the top. It is lighter and collapses to be virtually flat for packing.

That wouldn't be my first preference either. I've made a couple lids out of aluminum and just use a tab of aluminum tape instead of a nob.

It's standard 0.005" thick titanium foil, practically any grade.

You can bend it with your fingers, yet it will snap back flat.

Do you know of a retailer for a small quantity... Say enough for two lids ( one prototype and one actual)?

OK saw that EJ posted titanium goat sells it...

I think that Titanium Goat is the convenient place to buy small quantities. Before you place your order, you might think about other purposes. That might affect the amount that you order. For example, a titanium windscreen or heat reflector, wood burning stove pieces.

Titanium makes the best sense in places where you need the heat resistance. If you don't need the heat resistance, then often aluminum will be perfectly adequate and lighter to boot.

Dave, I have a ti foil lid that I made for a SP 600 pot that I can send you. Here's a photo:

Ti foil lid for SP 600

The handle is an "omega" of .062" ti rod, with a silicone tube covering. You can remove this handle simply by bending the rod on the underside.

Underside of ti lid

I'll mail it to you, and I'll also include a couple pieces of scrap titanium foil so that you can make one you like better. If you gift me $5 to cover mailing costs, it's all yours. If this interests you, send me a PM and we will work out the details.

Edit--the lid weighs 6 grams
