Re: Stainless stove problem

The stove in the video does not have a sealed inner chamber. No pressure can build up in the inner chamber where the jets are. He mentions at the end he knows this is a possible problem and vapors may be leaking out the top. I'd try all the things suggested previously. Seal the inner wall, use a hig...

I had to hold my breath there for a few seconds
Yeah, me too. Didn't want to be too critical though because he stayed amazingly calm and got through it. Notice the older sibling has a helmet on, but the little guy is only sporting a sun hat and he has farther to fall :?

Urban Water Hiking in Japan

I was surfing YouTube and stumbled across an awesome 3 year old adventurer climbing a rope ladder down to the water. I took my boys kayaking at three but I would never have had the nerve to let them try it this way. I probably still wouldn't let any three year old do that; But I am sure this little ...

Re: "Ridgeline" lightweight pot series

New pot looks great! In looking at the cut off version looks like lip is turned into pot. Could it be turned out as well? May keep food or other gunk from getting under lip if used for something other than boiling water.

Creative thinking there Zelph. Good job.

Re: Hike on the WildSide

I don't think I'd have the nerve particularly on the sections where you have to balance on one rail with more than one arm's length away from the wall :shock:

Re: Making stove alcohol

I see it requires activated charcoal. 250 Euro.
If the final product (hooch) is for the stove and not to be consumed I suspect the carbon could be skipped. It is likely for flavor enhancement only and not a factor in potency. Looks like a neat little device.

Re: Stumpjumper's Lint Stove

To prevent wax from dripping, candles are often topped by a "candle follower", a short tube made of brass, glass or some other non-flammable material.

Re: very loud stove

I thought it was the pot too, but not if it happens with it off. I have a military "Trangia" made by Svea that, if I remember right, has the inner wall and top all pressed from one piece of brass and the bottom another separate piece with the two pieces rolled together at the seam in the middle. It ...
