I've developed a "Cobalt" stove to fit the heineken pot.

It's self priming, has a ignition wick(tm)

Boils 2 cups in 10 min on less than 3/4 ounce fuel
This is the first jetted beer bottle stove that will work with Heineken pots and larger. It's top jetted.

You guys over at tinys site let him know. Bill from Montana take notes. You said you had the best all around stove ;) This stove is going to run circles around your white box stove. The bios is kids stuff.

i think i can guess what the stove is made from but do you mind saying what the "pot stand" or whatever you are calling the thing in the middle is made of?

The pot support is a stainless steel ring that extends to the bottom. It transferes heet to the fuel while in it's priming stage. Dual purpose kinda. The stove is still 2 1/4 inches high. It fits the heiny pot nice and the stainless has a good firm grip on the aluminum. The ring is "press fit" into the stove to make it very secure. I still consider it a one piece stove. If I were to invert it on the pavement, I'd be able to stand on it and use it as a step stool, It's rugged :o

Looks like the cylinder shell from a Bimba "Flat 1" air cylinder. :mrgreen:
In my line of work I can scrounge all sorts of "dead" air cylinders. :mrgreen:

Have you made any stoves using the cylinders? I understand the walls go up to 4" dia. Lots of good Fancee Feest making stock you've got access to. Nice!!!

Nope. Most complete cylinders have way too much mass in the aluminum heads and tie rods - and the ones that don't have tie rods are either way too thick in the walls or are crimped together to the point that you have to destroy them to remove the piston (generally these are non serviceable anyways.) But the components are often useful in some other way.
