Well, over a month after emailing Thermojet about the missing part, but less than a day after posting here, we received an email apologizing and saying that the missing stove parts have been shipped. If true, I guess I will have two good stoves. Of course, I only wanted to buy one! But it will be fun to compare. I'm so impressed with the Featherfire that the Microlite is going to have a tough time winning me over.
Three days later, I received the missing parts of my shipment. Thermojet is a very nice stove, but five weeks is way to long to resolve a defective shipment. In short, good stove, poor service. Comparing to the Featherfire- The Thermojet is simpler, more compact. The Featherfire is easier to operate, has better flame control, and seems to be a fuel miser. I'll use the Featherfire and keep the Thermojet as a backup.
