Re: Mini Tealite Pressurized burner

Real gram weiners pour the alcohol in their hand, light it and hold the pot!

Re: Plastic Lined Beer Cans as Pots

OK, here's what I know. Pretty much any beer can is going to have an interior coating over the aluminum (pg. 26). Waterborne coatings contain a polymer or resin base, water, and organic solvent. The organic polymers found in water-based coatings include alkyds, polyesters, vinyl acetates, acrylics, ...

Re: for November.....

Excellent stove dlarson. The IV stove will surely be a "lifesaver" in extended cooking situations. Not much additional parts needed either. oops! I like your supercat expresso stove too.But I think your coffeemaker has prostrate problems... Hoz, that's Daren's stove. Currently, my version is still ...

Re: I.V. Stove

The air lock problem would also be a non-issue in a soft sided container.
But for solid containers I think Daren's solution is going in the right direction. My next concern would be how to keep the fuel from spilling out of the container during transport.

Re: sewing kit

My brother just gave me two spools of Kevlar :!: thread for watching his house a few weekends.
He's been working on his emergency kits too and gave me a few plastic floss bobbins for wrapping thread around.
I don't think I'd carry an awl on the trail though.

Re: FeatherFire

It's a work of Art. No kidding. I love the way it looks... all high-tech space age detailed goodness. It reminds me of all those stoves that Japanese guy has on YouTube . I think it's because the legs/pot stand are similar. I saw a picture or video somewhere that had a nice glass door display case ...

Re: "Pimp My Kelly Kettle."

There was a DIY Kelly Kettle thread on BPL and I seem to remember the person having decent luck. I haven't quite figured out the value in them other than that they are simply different. A can or tin stove and a titanium pot would almost certainly be lighter and the pot has more value than the Kettl...

i hooked this up to a plastic water bottle with the cap modified to allow for an air-lock free fuel feed. this is still way over built. heavey and bulky. but i've proved the tech. (50 minutes now) edit: 75 minutes till the fuel ran out. by very careful fuel feed control i was able to attain a simme...
