I just had an idea :o Put a bead of JB weld around the base of the inside where the wall meets the bottom of the stove. Put a fuel port 3/8" from the top on the outside wall.. Drill holes on the top edge Like I showed in the stovie forum. Put some fuel into the center of the stove, put some fire toit and see what happens. Remember to close the fuel port. :mrgreen:

If it blossoms, put the pot on the top of it.

Drill lots of jets to get max heat back into stove to keep it going. Don't let tiny read this :mrgreen:

Excellent idea with the fibre wick tape inside.
When will this version be available?
What cost?
And how much is shipping to Canada?

Thanks.

oops,
It looks like I'm the one who has to catch up with you! You passed me when I wasn't looking! When I saw your name (oops56) I figured that the 56 was your birthyear.
Actually, I'm not real far behind you-I was born in 50, and if my math is right, you were born in 42. Anyway-I am still wishing you a very Happy Birthday and many more!!

HaHa,HeeHee,HoHo You turn the stove on it's side to cover the port with a penny. Now you've created a side burner penny stove :o

I'll have some stoves ready to ship by tomorrow. The price will be $15.00 and that includes a EZ-Fold windscreen . $3.00 for shipping should cover that. Total $18.00 When I list them on ebay they will be $20.00 + shipping and ebay fees :roll: ebay fees, yukkkk!!!!

Did a test with 2 ounces of fuel on 6 cups of water. Got the water to 200 degrees and flame out. Not bad for this type of stove. I have a couple dozen made and working on an instruction sheet and video.

That puts it on a par with mine when it comes to boiling 6 cups on 2oz but your stove blossoms sooner. Good stove!

Two questions:

Just for curiosity have you tried it for melting and boiling ice outdoors?


I love boiled coffee in the winter! I call it bullet coffee. When it floats a .45 shell it's ready to drink :D
