Re: Pot Stands

if it fractures on the outside of a sharp bend i would suggest it's probably 6061-T6. the most common hard-alloy aluminum. 5052 (marine grade) will bend without fracturing. 7000 series is very hard, and not very common. 3000 series is very soft and is also called "food grade". From Daren's descript...

The whole kit consists of the stove, 4 legs made from 3/4 EMT, and 3 sections of 3" x 2" exhaust tubing. Sorry I don't have an exact weight on it all, but I would venture that it's in the neighborhood of 8 lbs.

Knotty,

A guy I camp with told me that when he saw it, too. Until then I'd never heard of the Clikstand. Must be that I'm not the only klutz out there likes big meals, too.

Re: Pot Stands

Cool pot stand, what is the thickness of the plate? Thanks, Jon Jon, The plate was 1/16" aluminum that I rescued from the trash at work when we cleaned up the lab a few years ago. I'm not sure what series it is, though. It's not dead soft, but it'll still bend (a little) without cracking. Ordin

Daren.....

Wow! That's a fine piece of engineering. It's pretty obvious you're not just an ordinary hack working in your basement with hand tools.

You win, hands down!

Pot Stands

I like my alcohol burners, but just never had a stand I liked to go with them. I'm a klutz and needed something not too delicate, and big enough that the pots aren't sitting on a stand with the same effective area as a silver dollar. This is my answer. It's not the lightest pot stand out there (but ...

Re: TeePee

Nice, nice, nice!!!!! :D I like it I just had an idea. Make the stove and flu the same diameter. Put a damper in the flu to regulate heat. Radiant heat maximus....why does this sound too easy????? The pulk can carry it so what the heck :mrgreen: Good idea. However, there's limited space in the pulk...

Re: TeePee

Is it feasible to offset the pole from the center position to save room..or use 2-3 poles that go to the outside edges instead?I would think a 3 pole setup with the stove going through the middle of a section between two poles could get you 2/3rds of the tent back. Sounds feasible enough. We'll hav...

Re: TeePee

Did you use stainless steel stove pipe for the tube section? Nope, it's just HVAC ducting. It's heavy enough that it'll probably last a number of seasons, light enough that we barely notice it dragging along in a pulk, and easy to work with very simple hand tools. Shorten the legs so the radiant he...
