Surfing the web, I ran across this site of a collection of vintage stoves and lanterns worth a look. ;)

Ah shucks, Oops. You got him beat if you can just locate all your gear, get it shined up and take pics of it fired up! :D I know, that is a major undertaking and would not leave much time for making stoves, cutting firewood and splitting it but we would all love to see your gallery of vintage gear. :D You toy with us and just show us one or two pieces in the background of a pic you've taken of one of your homemade stoves leaving us salvatating for more and more and ......... :lol: :lol:

between Deems and Mad Monte i think they probably have everything stove and lantern related that has ever been made.

It was interesting to see he is the designer of the [url]=http://users.sisqtel.net/losthiker/pikastove/Pika Stove Site[/url]

While I read his design methods and related info I zeroed in on a topic of Laminar Flow and Turbulant flow in relation to stove design. I thought it was interesting enough to start a separate thread in the "Urban Legend" forum.

Passive Air-Laminar Flow Stove Designs

This is a very elegant discussion about laminar flow stove design theory that Flyin Brian Robinson posted on the PCT-L chatroom in October 2002. I have found the passive air-laminar flow stove design to be the more fuel efficient design over pressure stoves, and they are far easier to build. I'll leave it up to you to listen to Brian's words of wisdom. Laminar flow theory.
