Re: Workbench photos

Hi Zelph, You are quite advanced in your measuring equipment Tony. See what oops and I use I would say over the top, a simple thermometer, stopwatch and pencil and paper is all that is needed.

Re: Workbench photos

I was enlightened to see from previous postings on this topic that some other stovies do not have the most organized workbenches either (except for Toddheyn). Below are some pics of my backyard shed, my equipment and workbenches. I have lived in this house for 26 years and have been collecting tools...

Re: Some Photos from XC Ski trip in OZ

Hi Zelph, Thanks for the compliments, I also admire your stove work. I have a theory about the crystals. There is a gyser near by creating a vast amount of mumidity in the air. The wind is blowing from left to right making the crystals form towards the right. Unfortunately we do not have any gysers ...

Re: Some Photos from XC Ski trip in OZ

Hi Zelph, They are of framing quality. Really nice Tony. You've got a good eye for content. I have to confess that I did not take those pictures, the person that I walk with took them with a DSLR and he has got the good eye. I should have acknowledged him, Dave is his name. Those crystal formations ...

Re: 28g (sub 1.0oz) stove and billy (pot)

Thanks Skid and Zelph for your comments, Did you choose the fish can just because it was available or was it because it is the size that matches the amount of water used for your personal needs. I usually use 4 cups of water at meal time 2 for food and two for drinking(480ml + 480ml) You are right i...
