I listed the "Cobalt" on ebay today. Finally got the time to make it happen.

"Cobalt" The Best Alcohol Stove In The World

Not really, the "StarLyte" is. ;)

Has anyone here burned one of these out yet? I've done lots of test burns and playing around with mine, as well as using it to make lunch while on the job.
I can't see how you would be able to wreck this thing unless you struck it with something extremely hard!

I managed to destroy a "Mini-Cobalt" (or rather since it was not wickitized, a mini-Bios). I mad e it from a pair of hair mousse cans. One was the form, the other was to be the stove. When I put the compressed air to it, to separate the stove from the form, It SHOT into the concrete floor and collapsed one edge of the base.
Just as well though. the forming radius on those cans is a bit tight. Walls only ended up about 1/8". Looking for another subject can now.
The opinion of 10,000 men is of no value if none of them know anything about the subject.

OK. I stand corrected then.
"or shooting it into a concrete floor with highly pressurized air".

It was me. Had to change my email address that was automaticaly inserted when I created the listing. It was causing a hassel with payments arriving at paypal. It's been a long time since my last listing and it had my old one imbedded in ebays memory. I had to relist with correct address. Paypal nor ebay could figure out what was going wrong. I did alot of reading on ebays customer help pages to find out by myself what the problem was. Go figure!!!! :D
