Couldn't you just precut the pin,peen/flatten/widen the ends(so it won't fall out later),put the metal together like the fingers of your hands,with the pin in place between the fingers,bend over every other one..over the pin..then weld?..just a thought...

I don't have any plans to make any for sale. I'll be making the changes and then using it on my upcoming campout next weekend. If it fairs well through further testing I'll make another one using the piano hinge method. Thanks for the ideas realityguy.

the thing i really like about this is the fact that its all one piece. there is nothing to loose except the whole thing.

That and you can fold it closed without having to handle the insides all that much (less soot). The problem with all other designs so far is that you have handle too many parts and get soot everywhere.

This seems like you can avoid dirty hands pretty easily.

Yes, all the folding is done inward onto the dirty surfaces. Dirty surface to dirty surface.

The stove can built with small hinges and pop rivets.

I did an up-grade. Used stainless steel parts. Stove still remains one piece.
I added a .003 stainless eco friendly soil protection sheet. I fabricated a stainless grate with little retainer arm that holds grate to opposit wall. I added two cross over bars to the top for added stability and for smaller pot diameters and small game or fish.
This was a good excercise for future designs. I now know what to incorporate into the next one.

The up-grade brought the weight up to 6 oz.

All pieces are attached, no loose parts. Still folds into a compact unit.

I don't hunt them any longer. Maybe I'll try the blow gun someday :D The Grey is more plentiful than the Fox in my neck of the woods. See some Black now and then. There is one city here in IL that has White. I'll see if I can find a link.

http://www.ci.olney.il.us/Visitors/Whit ... nformation

In an effort to help the white squirrel population, City Clerk Belinda Henton has obtained a permit to rehabilitate wildlife from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, Division of Wildlife Resources. Residents are asked to contact Mrs. Henton when they discover white squirrels that have been abandoned or hurt.

Olney has been featured on several local TV stations because of its white squirrels. Channel 47 from Peoria, Illinois featured Olney's white squirrels on Illinois Adventures, RealTV has featured the white squirrels on their program aired in November 1997. Mike Leonard from Leonard's Look of the Today Show visited Olney in January 1998 for a story aired on January 28, 1998.
