haha. I just found what I'll be trying to make next in my office on my down time using old Railroad junk.. :)[/quote]

Railroad junk???? pray tell :shock: what will you make out of railroad junk :? Things that burn hmmmmm. Flares? Those round cannon ball looking thingys used for heating frozen switch levers. Surprise us!!!! :DBfire:

I could not find my tripod :roll: No videos today :(

Photos, yes :mrgreen:

The stove on the right was the 2nd one made. Used JB Weld to fasten supports and burner to container(unpredictable, yukk :( )

One on the left has welded pot supports. Support arms welded to hinges and hinges welded to container. This is the one I used the Kmart grease pot on to boil the 4 chicken legs. Very sturdy.

The hinges are under tension and have a snappy action to hold them in the open position and kinda snap shut when lowering them for storage.

Nice job! Does the ring on the Starlyte conserve fuel during the burn?

Yes, works especially well in enclosed environments like the Caldera Cone. I used it in the photo because it was near by/handy. It is the right height to fit in the tin container. I used the new StarLyte burner to cook the 4 pieces of chicken. It holds 1.5 ounces of fuel but is a little bit taller and won't fit in the tin. :(

One option to keep it closed would be a silicone wrist band/lip guard (dual purpose) ;)

I've tried the wrist band and it's too big to do a 1 wrap closure.

Some have suggested using a bike inner tube cut to form a band. I don't get too excited about loose parts. :o I'll try velcro first and see if radiant heat has an effect on it. The adhesive may soften.

Why do I picture in my mind an old ninety ton Shay brewing a cup of coffee on the whistle?... :shock:

the whistle seems like the smallest thing that could be used. They had small wood stoves in the caboose. Maybe he's modifing one :mrgreen:

I think you missed the ninety ton locomotive under the whistle... :roll:

..and here we go off topic again.. :roll: ..we'll get back on by saying it's probably a tad bigger than an altoids tin box.. :mrgreen:
