Re: Starlish(1st Burn)

Tony you are a Canister stove God... The "Low profile canister stove" is truly remarkable it is what i've been looking for... If you decide to sell it i'll be first in line...

Re: Starlish(1st Burn)

Tony, what part of the stove is making all the noise? I am not quite sure but from the testing of my myog canister stoves the high pressure burning gas coming out of the burner holes is what I think makes the sound. With the MSR Dragonfly (we call them conversation busters) I think it is the fuel p...

Re: Starlish(1st Burn)

Nitrous Oxide is what the Super Dragsters are injecting as they fly down the drag strips. I'm not sure if dentists are still using it to calm down overly needle parnoid patients. seudo, check with your chef friend to see for sure if it's Nitrous Oxide. The whippets I used to hold them in my hand, a...

Re: Starlish(1st Burn)

Use "Tiki" torch replacement wicks for the fuel absorbing material. Cut the wick in pieces so that they stand verticle inside your burner. You want the fibers to be virticle to bring the fuel to the surface of the burner so the fibers touch the ss screen. The replacement wicks should be available i...
