Looking for a particular thread...

Post by shingaling » Sat Jan 01, 2011 11:16 am

Happy New Year all!
I'm looking for a thread I saw somewhere on here about a stove with a central hole that allows air to come up from below, through the center. I've searched for a while, but can't remember the name of the stove, or the name for that kind of stove in general.

The reason I ask is that I came across an old aluminum canning funnel in a thrift store, the kind with interchangeable funnel hole sizes. The funnel 'tip' sandwiches between the bowl of the funnel and a locking nut. I want to invert the tip so that it sticks up into the bowl, and silicone the heck out of the locking ring. There's enough rim surface that a seal should be possible.

Thanks, Shingaling

p.s. What ever happened to all of Q_x's posts? He had some good topics, and asked a lot of questions. Input like that is important to a DIY place like this!
Any road followed precisely to its end leads precisely nowhere. Climb the mountain just a little bit to test that it's a mountain. From the top of the mountain, you cannot see the mountain.

Happy New Year to you also. May it be more delightful than the last. :D

Maybe this is the one:


Here is one made of solid aluminum by Tony in Australia:

I think they are still here. He said he would not be coming back for personal reasons.

I miss him, too.

I thought he wasn't posting, because he solved the soot problem that had been the initial problem he was concerned about.

And, Happy New Year!
