I've thought about that as well. I almost think your best bet is to look for an old camera at the thrift stores or something with an adjustable aperture you could pillage. The construction of one would require a lot of precision I'm thinking.

I've never seen anything as nice as an AE-1 at the thrift stores. I probably couldn't get myself to tear apart a metal body SLR camera anyways. It just seems too nice. Wouldn't that be kind of like tearing apart a classic Shelby Cobra for the engine block?

Nobody has responded to the suggestion. It would be nice if we had one to take apart so we could show and tell :D

I'll order one and dissect it like the trangia for the sake of stovie advancement. ;)

i can't wait to get your review of the stove. i was thinking if it works well i want to make one like it and take that on my thru hike. having something that can adjust would allow me to not get burned out with my menu.
