Changed my mind. I'll skip the wrap and just double the weight of the pot. ;)

That lipstick burner you made looks pretty lightweight to me.

Cut fingers off?????????? Have another hot totie, Irish coffee, relax, the feeling will go away. :D :lol:

That SS globe that everyone is talking about at K-Mart. Where can it be found at K-Mart and what is it "normally" used for?
I really like this stove and I'm going to try to go to K-Mart and find it.

Thanks!

If you can still find any, they are in the camping department. Usually on an upper shelf. They are designed to replace the glass globe on a camping lantern.

Good luck.

It is usually a mesh replacement globe for coleman lanterns. However you may have dificulty locating it most of the kmarts stopped carrying it and clearenced it out. Might check walmart but they may have done the same thing. To me it seems similar to a really heavy gauge window screen the metal kind. I think Zelph was experimenting with that he may comment! :mrgreen:

This is what Southmark(WB) said on a source for the globes under a different name and location.

Just left the local Academy Sports here. They had lots of the stainless steel screens for coleman lantern globes under the brand of Timber Creek.

I "had" to go to K-Mart's to return some side can openers that didn't work on Heini cans. While there, and it was a ghost town, I went to look for some of those SS globes. Down to the camping department I went. I never saw such a small camping department in my life!
I'm looking around and can't see any and thought, oh darn....Then I remember someone posting that there are usually high up on a shelf. Looking up now and what do I see?.....Yep, ss globes!
There were 4 left and the price said $4.95. I picked up all 4 only because I though I might screw one up and I didn't want to drive all the way back. Oh..by the way..I was thinking of K-Marts and which one to go to. There are 3 by me...well, not really by me but, they are all about the same distance, only in opposite directions. I chose to go to the one in a Yuppie kind of area thinking it would increase my chances. Sometimes I come up with some good thinking :lol:

Anyway...I get to the cashier and she is giving the 4 globes a funny kind of look. I ask her what's wrong and she says "do you know how much these are?" I said yes, $4.95 as marked on the box. She replied, nope...they're being discontinued and so are on sale for .50! I got 4 for $2.00. My wife even thought I got a good deal...although she still thinks I'm crazy for making these stoves :D

Thanks to all of you that posted.
