Boric acid makes green flames, maybe some thin gauge wire will help make the flame visible. Magnesium burns bright white, and super hot if you can get it to burn some how...

I had an idea todo another fuel tab stove and use magnesium fuel tabs for heating 2 cups of water. The tabs will burn at a 5,000 degree temp. Good for the "fourth of July" weekends :D (Independence Day)

I don't simmer cook :D But if I did, I'd use this set-up. Easy to get accustomed to the simmer ring and use the lines on the side of the stove to gauge the amount of flame height.

By the way, DarenN came up with the idea on a simmer device for this type of stove.

Something to consider for rough ground conditions. Gives a more secure pot surface. The United Kingdom has some rough stuff over there, right Frum?

I havnt tried it, but I read somewhere that if you ad a bit of salt to to your fuel, it makes the flames visable. Its worth a try! I love the stove, great design! :D

Zelph I know how you can get rid of the problem on your TI cup, make a thermite stove, then you'll have a bottomless cup.... :lol:

But you could fill the cup with damp sand, and place a wood cutout on top, and compress it with an arbor press, should help a lil bit.

As for heating the cup, be careful, as i have heated metal and its gone all flimsy on me, but then again, I only realize what i have done till after...

I got rid of the problem using my thumbs to compress the outer perimeter. Now its a concave bottom with the ability to press on the bottom via the inside of the cup to make it pop back out into a convex shape. An "IneeOutee" ti mug. My recent stoves work well on convex bottoms such as the beer can pots.

I just wanted to drop you a line to encourage you to continue development on this stove. I love the idea and can't wait to be able to buy one to use with my Primus 1.2l pot.

Thanks Tim, glad you stopped by. I'm back from vacation as of yesterday and now it's time to get back to stove designs and more testing. I'll be relisting the Cobalt on ebay and will send out some the Super Stoves to be tested.

Love the concept.

Is 15ml the max. capacity of the stove?
