Don't know if it's been mentioned. For carrying fuel in the bottle just use another no leak cap.

yeah, i mentioned it earlier.

something else to make note of, i found that a plastic wine bottle cork fits the aluminum beer bottle very nicely. so drink a couple bottles of wine and a beer and you have the parts for the fuel bottle.

The Mr. Brown tin looks like it would make a great cook pot. It is wider and has the rigid rings. Did you say that it was a ferrous metal can ?
It is. But it's only around 8oz capacity. Those Japanese steel cans are ungodly sturdy without the rings too.

Meantime, nicely done on the IV stove development! And awesome fiasco burn test video, dlarson. Looks just like half my remote stove burns.

Oh - I get it. I thought you'd given up on that valve - I forgot you said you were going to reglue it.

yep. i glued them back together with JB Weld and they work fine. i had to be very careful not to get glue inside the seat for the needle valve.

this may sound dumb but since you work with metal, why not just make one out of plastic. the equipment is a little different but what you use should work, and i bet you could make a better one.
