Re: "holey" grail stove

Thank you for posting that very interesting information. I have never thought about their indian history. I found a picture of a handpainted map of the area from the 1800s and it showed it as one giant orchard with the town nestled next to it right by the river. This particular stove (medium size) h...

Re: "holey" grail stove

Pretty day outside today. It is finally starting to cool off some. Its been two weeks since it rained. I finally have some dr-y-y wood. This mug holds 14-15oz.,has a slide top , is pretty heavy duty and easy to put together/take apart. The stove itself is very stout and can be carried by itself with...

Re: "holey" grail stove

Yep. the potstand stores between the walls on two different ones. It didnt really fit before, but going with a smaller mesh and nixing the top hole has allowed me to shorten it to 1-1/2". I am also drinking my coffee out of it right now. If I could get the spoke-stakes to fit in there that would gre...

Re: Woodgaz UL wood burning stove.

I was referring to how you closed your cyclinder. I use needlenose pliers to "tie" the edges together.

Re: Woodgaz UL wood burning stove.

Like that one Dan. Very light and lots of airflow. I see you have developed the "nesting instinct". the starlight works well in there too. Did you spot weld the welded stainless mesh body? that stuff looks strong. Is that 1/2" x .47 ? I have been wanting to get some of that size but was worried abou...

primo tinder

I have been making my tinders for a long time out of two inch round cotton facial swabs. They always work, they are very light and burn forever. It takes me about an half an hour to melt the beeswax(75%) and vaseline(25%), then pour the liquid into a can that I have the whole pack of swabs stuffed i...

Re: holey grail stove

I use cotton facial swabs imbibed with about 75% beeswax and 25% vaseline. Pure wax is hard as a rock below freezing. They can burn on average between 7 to 10 minutes each. I meant to mention that I have been trying the top loaded method which works well for lighting, but I run into the same problem...

"holey" grail stove

I call this stove the "holey" grail It is pretty heavy duty in its construction. Also the mug itself is one of the nicer ones. (no leaks) I have tried a number of burns in it without the potstand. It works fine and will boil water every time without adding any wood. It is just slow. I believe that i...
