Re: What do you guys think about this????????

Thanks for the great info! (Zelph, i got a big kick out of the "copper death pot " reference!----I guess Tinney at MBD is the stove equivalant to Mr Hennesy in the hammock forums---very controverisial due to their business ethics concerning other peoples ideas!) What I had in mind, was something in ...

A friend of his commented that it was a huge waste of time and resources.----...
