Re: Cookpot/Water bottle combo

Very, very nice. That's a very clever way to strengthen the Monster Dub. Look forward to your testing results. A whole 32 ounces, wow, that's a whole lotta drink. A really nice size light weight, water tight container. I bet your eyes popped when you first saw the container :lol: Tomorrow I'm off t...

Cookpot/Water bottle combo

Many of you, like me, have been using Heineken and Foster's cans to cook/boil water while backpacking for years. They are cheap, extremely lightweight, and surprisingly durable. I've always thought it would be ideal to modify one to not only serve as a cookpot but as a water bottle as well. Dual use...

Re: Got2B Stove

The center portion can be blocked off with a stainless steel sink drain screen. It will still allow for the fuel to poured in. Once the wick is lit the ring of fire creates a vacuum in the center. Vapor still comes up and out and mixes with the flames and hopefully burns completely. I'll do a searc...

Re: Got2B Stove

Were the 5th and 6th boils longer to achieve? Especially the6th? Are you using plumbers cloth? Yes I used plumber's cloth. The boil times decreased very slightly as the fuel level decreased-just like the Trangia test I did a while back. Remember that one? If you can find one of the cans up North, Z...

Re: Got2B Stove

How well does it do with a slight breeze without a windscreen? Is it sensitive to wind/breeze? In a confined space does it flare up? Pretty well but a windscreen makes it better. It burns pretty steady with no flare-ups in confined spaces. Trangia's are not very expensive. The key here is the weigh...

Got2B Stove

Trangia stoves are a tough design to beat for a homemade stove builder. Their advantages are many. Drawbacks, few. Dances with Mice sums it up well: Trangia burners : - are more fuel efficient than any home-made stove, according to Sgt. Rock's study ( True, considering stoves tested in the study, e...
