With the lid it's 1.0 ounce.cruiser wrote:.9 oz per unit?
I though they were 1.5oz? Getting lighter or is the lid the extra half ounce?
I know its dumb, but I'm one of those BPL guys, and the extra ounce over my original Starlyte was discouraging because it wouldn't really offset the weight of my fuel bottle. .4 ounces heavier though sounds a lot better, particularly considering the jump in efficiency you've noted with the larger burner.
A 4 ounce capacity fuel bottle weighs 1/2 ounce.
Further testing indicates I should change it's capacity to read: 4 ounce fuel capacity. That works out nicely cause I will then include a fuel bottle with 4 ounce capacity. If you use HEET in yellow bottle it can be transferred into fuel bottle and then that can be the measuring device to add 4 ounces into the burner/stove. An additional 4 ounces can then be carried in the fuel bottle.
Some of us can think of this new burner as a lightweight Trangia. The lid can be put on to conserve remaining fuel. It will have the capability to simmer via the carbon felt pad. The superior factor is.....safety from spilling fuel Once the fuel has been put in, it won't spill out.
Out west the burn bans put a damper on backpackers having a quiet experience by causing them to use canister stoves.
Is Suluk46 welding up windscreens?Backpackinglight?
I read that in the description at the Suluk46 website for his titanium windscreen.
A quote from a welding site:
Equipment and parameters for resistance spot or seam welding titanium are the same as are required for austenitic stainless steel. As with any welding procedure to be used on titanium, test resistance spot and seam welds should be made on titanium, prior to production welds. Tension-shear tests will help to determine quality of the welds made. Once parameters and procedures are verified as producing quality welds consistently, these should be adhered to strictly during production runs.""
