Nice.....the vanes make it look "technical" jet engine type look :D the inner workings of a jet engine ;)

Nice boil time and fuel usage. Great results

Tinkering pays off :D

great idea-------very impressive! That's s a very creative idea-------good job! Ive been playing around with another version of a "low profile " stove-----I really like the concept! Have you come up with a pot stand yet ?

Origami folding stoves seem to be popular.

Necro-post....

I've had REALLY interesting results duplicating this stove. 10ML of HEET ALMOST had my SP600 Titanium mug boiling water. I mean I had quite large bubbles, just not rolling boil. Wonder what would happen with an aluminum pot??

Well mine is a slight deviation. Soda can, 12 sections, 1 inch tall. Boils 2 cups of water at 6 minutes using only 12ML of DA. Not too shabby. :)

Don't you just love tinkering with stove stuff. :D

Just for the fun of it, try the same size can cut to 1/2" high, no folding, just straight wall. Pour in 1/2 ounce fuel and support your pot 1/2" from top of burner. The "flame front" should take the same shape as the flatcat without the tiny jets.

Pot distance to burner has a big influence on the flame pattern.

I can remove the wire pot support from my Starlyte stove, light it, after a min. or two the holes made for the pot support will become jets of flame. If I were to puncture holes all around the rim there would be tiny jets like the flatcat. The majority of the vapor comes from the center of your stove and justinkering. The tiny jets are a byproduct.

We love tinkering :D

My influence came from the SuperCat stove made from a
fancy feast cat food can. One piece stove, dump the fuel, place the pot on top. I like easy :mrgreen:

I wonder if placing a wick :idea: around the inside of the can before folding the tabs down would make any difference in efficiency :?:
