The new pot/cone setup is really nice. Does it need an additional windscreen in windy conditions? Ill bet the pot stand blocks some of the wind.
Top lighting is definitely the way to go :D

Looks nice, cadyak, as usual ;) Does the hardware cloth pot support need to be that high? It seems like an inch would be plenty, esp. with the top holes :?:

Thanks RR .
most of them are 1-1/4". some are 1-1/2"( the straight tapered ones) but when pushed down till their stopping point they are just over an inch. I have actually noticed a reduction in draft at 1" or less.

Yes, the pot support blocks approx. 1/2 the wind going across the top of the cone. I found that out many years ago when I created one of my first stoves. I used an aluminum stove pipe reducer as a pot support and an X pot support on top of it. On the windward side the flames were pushed away from the bottom of the pot and on the opposite side(?) the flames remained under the pot bottom. Kinda interesting and more efficient than a mesh pot support. No matter....one load of wood in either style will boil 2 cups of water :DBfire:

The mesh is rock solid and has support ring under the entire pot with no wiggling and the little nibs left over after cutting really grip your pot. That is probably my favorite aspect of the stainless mesh .
It also allows me to use a proper windscreen that really cuts all wind. :D So many different ways to utilize wood. It is a great fuel

Yes, wood rocks! :? I'm cool! 8-) :mrgreen:

The little nibs are really good grippers for sure. I just sold another Woodgaz stove and it has some good grippers :D
