ww2 zip stove

Hey guys, not sure if you have seen this before or not-------a friend at work found it on line, I thought it was pretty neat! (be sure to read the whole page--very interesting how they used the stoves to boil water) http://samilitaryhistory.org/vol086db.html (apparently "klim" was a brand of condensed milk--they used the cans for all sorts of things. ---the first "stovies"!)

wow! that was interesting :D Don't go anywhere without your wooden crate :mrgreen:

Reminds me of the "little fires" story about how villagers would "bug out" to the woods and live while their town was invaded and occupied by the "enemy" fires had to be small and no smoke emitted. Along came the vertical stack and top light method of fire building. Now if I can only find the thread where it's
located. :lol:
