Howdie,

I wanted to drop you a quick message and let you know that I mentioned your 2c flat bottom pot in an article I did recently detailing my 2 ounce cook kit.

Thanks for your willingness to make continue to make gear for those of us out here wanting something lighter!!

is made up of the standard parts of a cook setup. A pot, a stand, a spoon (yes, I believe you should count your spoon as part of your cook kit), your stuff sack, and your fuel. If you were really paying attention to that you might have noticed I left out the ‘stove’ part of that setup
You left out "windscreen" :mrgreen:

Still re-reading....be back for more questions, comments. Great article...good one!!! :D

Does the suluk ti windscreen have to be reshaped once you take it out of the pot or does it have a memory and revert back to a nice round shape? What distance between windscreen and side of pot?

It bounces right back to the original form. This is my second one from Suluk46 and the first one is doing just as good as this newer one. The first was a full size but I wanted something that would work in both your pot as well as a little 400ml cup, so I had Steve (owner of Suluk46) make it just short enough to fit inside of one.

Distance between the windscreen and the side of your pot... um, let me go set them up and take a picture...


Ok, I could not get a good photo... so here is a video of horrific quality, but should be good enough to see what you wanted to see.

The video showed me exactly what I wanted to know. Thank you.

Steve(Suluk46) is a nice guy. Yesterday he ordered 10 more custom Ridgeline pots for his kits. I have to start on them today.

Sweet, glad the video helped. A photograph was just not working out at showing the distances. Not a whole lot of room between them, that is for sure.

When you get done making up Steve's 10 pots (really steve, 10 pots... lol) I think I might have you make me one that is a weebit shorter and a few grams lighter so I can get back down below that 2oz mark :DP:

I use aluminum and steel for flat bottom pots. I used aluminum on Steve's pots. I can make them any size. I can make them to hold 2 cups exactly for maximum weight efficiency. Steve made a wise choice to use the cans original top and lid for maximum strength for the top of the pot.

I need to do more experimenting with Esbit solid fuel. Not readily available at local stores. Always available online ;)

I am thinking a 1-cup size flat bottom would be awesome!!

The little 1-cup thingie that you send along is just a bit odd for my likes.

I think I will order up a flat bottom that is just over the 1c mark and see how I like it. :mrgreen:
