:oops: :oops: Oops. That's what I get for not watching the entire video. When you decided to go thru it all a second time, I hit the back button....5 seconds before you unrolled the Ti windscreen/pot support.

That's strange, the video shows "private", did you record something that shouldn't be seen? :shock:

I have videos that are short and make sense only to those that read the threads here at bplite.

I finished my wood burning heat tests today and all went well.

I welded up a batch of SS pot supports. I made a change in the design. I made them full circle for maximum maximum pot support. Pot support is now the same diameter of the pot bottom. The little ridge on the bottom of the pot prevents the pot from sliding off. The pot support will fit inside the pot.

The pot support and a StarLyte burner together weigh in at 17 grams.

Brushed aluminum, flat bottom pot and lid weigh 22 grams

It took me quie a few hours to make the supports but finally got them done.

.....and I thought you were retired :lol: :lol:
Is the pot support made from larger grid ss or are you tacking it all together from ss
Single line wire?

I'm retired but work for myself. No need to punch a clock ;) This is a labor of love. :mrgreen:

I'm tacking together 7 pieces of ss wire. The wire comes off a roll and has to be straightned :roll: After welding the joints have to be trimmed and ground smooth then buffed. The final task is to weld the ends together to form the circle. The final outcome is a support for the entire diameter of the pot, total stability.

I like the full circle base. It will want to stay round much better that way. What kind of a welder do you use for that kind of stuff?

Well sorry for the mix up. I goofed!!! I checked the "private" box for the video :oops:

Here is another try at it:



cadyak, it's a basic harbor freight spot welder with a modification to do small stuff.

Getting closer. I had to stop on this project to start processing 144 Foster cans. I ran out of 2 designs and also need some for these kits.

I think the name of this kit is going to be Titanium Zule Stove. Zelph's Ultra Lite Extreme. What do you think of the name?

Any suggestions on making any changes in the items seen so far?

Should I make a small titanium rectangle tray for esbit instead of the Esbitmizer? Is simmering important?
