Altoids Tin Pocket Stove 2 oz

Post by zelph » Wed May 16, 2012 8:07 pm

I was inspired by a pocket stove issued to civil war soldiers.

The stove has stainless steel pot supports.

Total weight including burner is 2 ounces.

All you need is a couple fold out flaps in the lid to create a three sided windscreen ;)

2oz?!!! :o

..Better get out the forklift... :roll:

(Now you know what I've been getting with my heavyweight 2oz stoves..) ;)

Don't forget the ripply wire things that fold out and go through a hole, like coleman has,for holding them in place..
I barely had room in mine for the three burners and the tweezers...besides the potstand.. :roll:

We have so many Altoids tin projects, especially in amateur radio.

Oh man! I would love to pull that out at the campsite. What fun. :D

What are the dimensions? Altoids tin?

Do you actually use it for food preparation? Do you use small cookware?

Connie, here is the link to my creation.

My thought was to couple the stove with a 12oz & 24oz Heine pot.
