I'm slowly but surerly working on them. Monday I decided to order a small role 3/8" x 100 feet of stainless steel for the hinges that hold the stove together. I previously cut up some 3/4" wide stock into 3/8" wide. As soon as it arrives at my house I'll go there and get it so I can work on them here at the campground ;)

Sounds like that should save you a bit of labor ;)

Count me in for one of the roundies!

I think it does need a windscreen to go around the pot though; when I used the folding WoodGaz in the field once, I discovered that although it burned well, we were losing a lot of head to the breeze. I didn't have anything with me that I could use as a windscreen that wouldn't have ended up burning or melting... and the wind was swirly enough that the rock we'd built the fire behind wasn't enough. :-/

The word "we" means there were at least 2 bodies that could have furnished some wind sheilding. ;)

In the video I furnish with the Folding Woodgaz I show using telephone book pages for tinder starter. That paper produces a fire sheilding cover if left on the stove. It helps prevent radical flame dispersement in low breeze conditions. Out in the open there is "wind" to contend with and the only thing that will help is 2 or more boulders as a windscreen :mrgreen:

I shipped another folding stove yesterday.

I'm slow to get to the round one :( sorry about that. :shock:

I'll be working on the square windscreen, pot support kits today. Lots of requests for that one.

We tried that, but the swirliness defeated us. We weren't fat enough ;)

That's one of the things that looks really appealing about the Fire Mug... the way that its windscreen wraps around it would be perfect. I'd be happy with a round WoodGaz (I'd be able to fit it in my pot more easily than I can the folding one ;)) and a wrap-around windscreen that I could easily attach to it to keep the wind from stealing my fire ;)

The folding one goes into your back pocket ;)

The first folding design was a winner for my use. One fold and it's flat....I like easy. To open it was even easier. One handed opening. :ugeek: Now if I can find the video :lol:


The round woodgaz is my goto used with a SP600. It is so easy to load and boil 2 cups. I load 2 of them in the evening for morning wake-up call. I use a 8" x 20" EZ-Fold windscreen. I like EZee. 8-) We all have our own little kits that suite our way of life ;) There are many many designs out there to choose from.

This is the EZEE fold wood burner that no one seemed to like....but me :geek:

Tamerlin, watch the swirling wind patterns with windscreen around it. See how the paper ash remains protective of the flames.

Telephone book paper is light weight, folds flat and easy to carry.

I think it will still hold a pot full of water if you cut out some of the squares (maybe two rows below the top, one row in from each side, and down to the windscreen on one panel). Now I don't have to lift the pot to feed the fire :)

p.s. I like the first design better. You might have to make two versions. Call the first one the switchblade. Just looked too cool when you flipped it open with one hand.
By golly Sudden did like it and other also after looking back on the thread. My bad :oops:

Sudden your idea to cut away some material so you don't have to lift the pot to feed more twigs is a great idea. I think lots of folks will like it also. You're on the ball ;) I think I have 2 stoves with me here at camp to cut up.
