i wouldn't change anything else. it works really well!!

I'm convinced you've got it maxed out to it's perfection. Will you be making any available to paddler friends and hiking friends? :D

nope. sorry. they are just too labor intensive to build. aluminum stock is not cheap. requires the sacrifice of a Brunton stand to get the valve and hose. plus: i recall reading that someone looked into getting the required clearance to market a DIY gas appliance. far too costly, and time consuming. i'll stick to my wood stoves.

Give them away and charge what is necessary for shipping to make up for your time and materials and tag on whatever else might be necessary. :mrgreen:

here's how it looks now.

this was a great summer for kayaking! :D
i had one 4 night trip; one 5 night trip; and three 6 night trips. i used this little stove on all trips, and kept track of fuel usage. the best it did was on the last trip, using only 18 grams per day. the only thing i want to change is to try a larger diameter burner head in an effort to get a larger flame spread and eliminate the hot spot when using it under a frypan. the current head is 1"diameter. i have some 1-1/4", and 1-1/2" aluminum stock to work with. i'll let you know how it works out.

Nice work, it is amazing how our LW stoves have evolved to look similar, below is a picture of my latest version of my stove. I like the way you have attached the burner to the outer ring. I have not used mine much in the field as the burner is to small for cooking large meals for two, I also have plans for a larger burner. I also have plans for a multi fuel stove.

Are you sure you guys aren't related? Nicely done, also, Tony. What are you using for your fuel line?

hi Tony;
yours looks way lighter than mine! is your base milled from one piece? setting up my old lathe as a horizontal mill hasn't really worked out well enough for that kind of machining.

in my pic, the burner head is 1" (2.54cm) diameter. i'm going to just make a couple different sized heads that are interchangable. one at 1.25" and one at 1.5". after that i'm going to make a copy that is fully operational but all made of brass and polished to a mirror finish. it will have a place on display in my living room. ;) vanity; i guess, but what the hell! :mrgreen:
