Top Jet Burner

Postby WanderingStovie » Mon Feb 16, 2015 11:27 pm

Here is the stove, stand, and pot I used over the weekend near Springer Mountain.

The stand is 0.047" music wire and 1/8" outside diameter brass tube with a 0.014" wall thickness.

The stove is made from an Underwood deviled ham can, a 30 mm tall section of an aluminum can of spray cheese, and a 3/4" tall capillary strip cut from an aluminum soda can. The capillary strip wraps around the outside of the inner cylinder. The stove is 1 1/4" tall, 2 5/8" in diameter, and holds an ounce of fuel. There are six vertical jets 3/64" in diameter. The space between the steel can and the inner cylinder is sealed with JB Weld. There are six notches filed in the top of the inner cylinder above the jets, to relieve pressure when a pot is placed directly on the burner (not the intended mode of use, and only works when both the stove and the pot are hot).

The rate of burn is reduced by moving the burner closer to the bottom of the pot, either with a shorter stand, or by placing something under the burner. After the water boils, the stand can be removed and the pot can be placed directly on the inner cylinder. Without a stand, the flames lick the sides of the burner, making the rate of burn nearly as fast as with the stand. So if you want to simmer, use a short stand, or raise the burner.

Thanks. The support is just three cubes (almost) joined along edges. There is good support at the perimeter of the kettle with no need for feet.
