Fourth of July Stoves

Postby DaddyMnM » Sun Jun 08, 2008 12:58 am

I took this stove from the failure thread to a separate post here for Zelph's 4th of July challenge. I am entering this as my stove for the 4th. It's a bit early, but I am going on vacation, so here it is.

Since I posted it as a failure, I rescued it from the trash per Zelph's suggestion. It was having trouble staying lit, so I added two center jets, and a brass wood screw to transfer heat into the stove body.

I have two videos. The 1st one is a wilder burn, when the stove was too full. I snuffed it to let it cool, burned a minute without the screw in, then put it back. The 2nd video shows a more controlled burn.

I also have two photos. In the 1st I show the stove and a 5 oz juice can for scale. The tubing I used for the jets is stuck in a tea light candle. I also show a one egg skillet from Wearever purchased at Target, I mentioned in another post. The 2nd photo shows the stove. It's wrinkled because I was started to crush it, and trash it, but changed my mind at the last second.

Enjoy.

Oh yes!!! that first one is going to be hard to beat is right. It needs some tunes to go along with it. Everyone needs to to sing "Stars and Stripes Forever while watching it :D

The second one makes me want to get a snuffer can ready or a fire extinguisher :mrgreen:

Nice frying pan and good size comparison. Were the tubes stuck in the candle inside the stove when it was firing up?

The last photo shows how a stove can attain character, I like it!!!!! :D

Reminds me of Mags well used kitchen set. ;)

No candles were used while burning. I just wanted the tubing to show it's inner and outer diameter's in the photo. I had the stove on an inverted cat food can so it wouldn't burn my B&D WorkMate's wood top. I primed using the inverted cat can as a primer pan.

The 2nd video was the first burn when it was too full of fuel. I got the two videos out of order. I had a small cat can on the side that I snuffed it with after taking that video. Adding the brass screw got the stove going too hot until some fuel was consumed.

I know it would be better with music, but I don't have video editing tools yet.

After re-reading you question, Zelph, I see it was on stove construction. The stove is made from two juice cans with a dome top and there are 4 tubes for jets extending into the stove well off the bottom and bent 20 to 30 degrees towards center. There is a center fuel port with brass screw and two thumbtack hole jets on either side of the fuel port. There is no fiberglass or candle wax in the stove. The tubes are held in place by JB weld.

This is just a reminder to get your stoves ready.

I'm going to test mine this evening weather permitting.

It's my version of a pelleted esbit type stove. The photo is the burner portion. Still working on the potstand. Fuel is contained in the classic 3 oz. cat food can. I'm going to take this can into it's next dimension. :geek:
