A novelty stove is a good description of it. Lets look at it again. First of all you have to take the cap off your fuel bottle and put it in your pocket. Then attach the bottle to the tube cap. Then hold your finger on top of the carbon felt while you squeeeze fuel into the stove and wait for your finger to feel the fuel. You'll notice smokeeater checks many times to see how the stove is burning and also lifts the lid off the pot to check for bubbles. So, when you're done you take the top off the fuel bottle, wrap the hose around the stove and then reach into your pocket....duh.... it's not in that pocket
which pocket did I put it in
No worries....you'll find it
The only reason for having a remote feed stove was to have the ability to simmer, correct? There a too many stoves out there that are user friendly that all you have to do is dump in the fuel, light and walk away and come back 6-8 min later to your boiling water. They all are KISS style stoves. Lots are 1 piece stoves. User friendly type.
Now we want to simmer so we have to open the windscreen to be able to see the flame and its size to create a simmer size flame. In the daylight it's going to be hard to see. I suspect these stoves were meant to be used in shelters where you have a better chance of seeing the flame and keeping an eye on it so it doesn't go out while in the simmer mode.
What do you do with the fuel that is left in the tube? The tiny inside diameter of the tube wants to hang on to the fuel in it. It has to be forced out before storing or else Murphy's law says it will leak out while it's in storage
I ha not watch any videos of the fore plug. Does it get a negative pressure built up?
Oops56 is totally correct. You need to know your stove.
Remote canisters with hoses are old technology and have their place in todays backpacking world just like Smokeeaters stove has it's place.
So, long story short I will join the ranks of stove makers and produce a remote alcohol stove that is user friendly. I can't show it too early because everyone on the internet will start to copy it.
I think the name will be "nuttinfancee" just down home user friendly.
Smokeeater has developed on this design with his new Hyker stove where the nipple on the stove is higher than the bottom of the stove, allowing for air to be sucked back in as opposed to fuel.
That sounds like it could suck a flame along with the air. Air, fuel and flame = fire in the bottle maybe. Murphy's Law has a way of messin things up
