i'd really like to see the insides of one of those coil burners, to see if i could build one. (hint hint).


If you could build a Borde Bomb replica, I know a few people that would love to have one :lol:

well now,oops.
if you were to trade something out of your massive collection, then you wouldn't have any more stoves than before. just one different one. 8-) i'd really like to see the insides of one of those coil burners, to see if i could build one. (hint hint).

But the hole is in the bottom coil very small two wicks one each side just up far enuff to hold them in not all way round or might burn up and the space or openig at top about a dime size once it running i take a screw driver open or close to get good flame make sure that wick is long enuff to stay wet in tank colemen fuel

DarenN, somewhere on here there is a link to a supply warehouse that has coil burners dirt cheap if you want to dissect one. Maybe Zelph or someone else has the link. I can't seem to locate it right now. :roll:

Interesting web site Daren.
I like what it says on the home page:
We advocate the use of safety equipment and proper rescue training. Wear a wetsuit or drysuit as the waters in British Columbia can get pretty darned cold. In fact, some of the glacial fed lakes in our region can get so cold that they'd make a polar bear cry.


Now that's pretty darn cold!!!!

What type of latch is used to hold this hatch closed? http://www.westcoastpaddler.com/building/displayimage.php?album=6&pos=15

This one caught my eye.

internal shock cord, hooks to the underside of the hatch lid. only a useful system for show boats. i wouldn't use it on an expedition boat.

that's my paddling buddys self-designed playboat. i helped him build it in my shop a couple winters ago. it was an incredible amount of work getting all those narrow panels into shape.

i've built about a dozen boats over the last ten years. two stripbuilt canoes, and the rest kayaks. you can have a look at the kayak i'm working on now at this link:::

It was a great experience reading through all the pages of your thread. All I can say is WOW!!!!! Your are certainly the King of Strippers :mrgreen: You take the "Do It Yourself" to extremes and beyond :D . You sure are one heck of Craftsman in both metal and wood working. Thanks for putting us in the direction of your current project. I'll be sure to check it often to follow on your progress. I look forward to seeing it on the water.

Sure am glad your experience with the fire was not extensive, Phew!!! that was close.

Did you punch out your wood stove parts at work from coil stock? :D

actually, the MK1 stoves are made mostly from scraps that would otherwise be sent to the recycler.
