Cabbage-patch stove aka "cabbage head stove"

Post by zelph » Tue Dec 18, 2012 11:08 pm

I have about 100 of these in the works. A friend of mine(cabbage head) showed us how to build these on Whitblaze.net Nice DIY project. I named the stove after him(somewhat).
It weighs just under 1 ounce. Made of an aluminum beer bottle.
I'm teaching my son how to make them. Nice DIY project for him. He can sell some on ebay.
I have seen these stoves being made and sold on youtube. Everyone and their uncle is making them.
Takes about 45-55 seconds for the jets to light up in 38 degree garage temperature. It's more of a summer stove. You could put a primer plate of some kind under it and get it going quicker or you can wrap fiberglass wick around it like most everyone is doing. Once the jets are lit just place the pot of water on top. It's a one piece stove.

These stoves I'll sell as stocking stuffers. Buy 2 @ $5.00 each or $6.00 for one.

I'll have them listed in my store in a couple of days. http://www.zelphs-stoveworks.com

I have to wonder; what is the difference between this whiteblaze DIY stove and Bill's stove that comes in a vanilla box?

Not much. This design has gone "viral" in a sense. There are many individuals that have videos on you tube showing how to make this stove. Many of them sell what they make on their own website or ebay. So cabbagehead is one of them. They are all copies of Bill's stove. If I can recall, Bill originally sold his stove for $10.00 and now it's up to $20.00 on ebay.(windscreen incl.) It's design was different also. Used pop rivets to hold the pieces together. Then along comes tiny and designs for him the "cope roll" The die is actually made by a machinist used by tiny. So all these guys on the tube use tiny's way of rolling the top inward. Tiny has a video showing the method. Along comes cabbagehead and starts making them. Cabbagehead starts selling them on Whiteblaze in a manner that is surprising to me and no one seems to mind his approach. I said to myself, get on the bandwagon and make a few :D My stove is better though, has more jets closer together. Lot's of the videos we see show the maker of the stove having to blow on it to get all the jets to light or they wave their hand past it to get the jets to light. Most recent video that I recall is Smokeeaters showing a side jet stove and he waves his hand past it to get the jets to light. His jet holes are not close enough to light each other up. My jets are close to each other, nice and friendly they are ;) If one gets lit, they pass it on to the next :geek: There is a science to stove making. ;)

Well, Bill struck while the iron was hot but I would imagine his sales have to have gone down. Maybe with all his copyrights , he will try to make money thru the legal system :o :roll:

I think Bill is worn out. He didn't even say diddly squat about all the copycats. Same here, tired of trying to avoid copycats. No win situation, got to join in, get in line for a piece of the action :lol:

Bill was here for a while only to sell his product. didn't have anything to add to the forum. Actually we had a lot of Bills here. :o

:lol: It was closest thing I could get to represent a cabbage and fit inside the stove. I think they are in the same family. They resemble cabbage but taste a whole lot different.

Those are far from being "baby Brussels". They look good size to fit the circumference of the stove. Brussels and cabbage both taste great and create the same "effect" :lol:
