you know it! ;)
at about 185-190* the pot starts to hiss. then at about 205* it gets quieter, and then when it starts to boil it gets real quiet and the bubbly noises start. :geek: that's when i pause the stopwatch and take down the reading for the boil time. continue the stopwatch and then stop it when the flame goes out. i can do it all in the dark! :ugeek:

The sounds are like a "runners high" :D

When I make a stove and test it I sit there watching and listening. When it gets to the hissing point I look at the strength of the flame to see if it's going to make it to a boil on 1/2 ounce of fuel....seconds pass and all of a sudden it goes quiet (suspense, will it make it?) I look down at the flame and it's still lit :DBfire: ......the "Stovie's High" steam starts to push the lid up........................Success!!!!!! :mrgreen:

the 12 jet configuration is still looking to have the best numbers. We will see what numbers the next jet size will bring :geek:

the last go-round

all three stoves have .046" jets

Bloom - Boil - Flame Out

24 jets
1:03 - 7:00 - 7:29

12 jets
0:51 - 6:53 - 7:12

6 jets
0:49 - 8:09 - 8:39

......

i built one more burner with the same specs as one of the better ones in my testing.
12 Jets at .046
the original free burn testing gave these times:

Bloom - Flame Out

0:37 - 4:04.33

i made a slight modification to the mechanics of the burner and got these times:

0:15 - 4:34.67

:ugeek:

he he! :lol:
i knew someone was paying attention!

it's something that i've tried in other burners with limited success.
in this burner it worked. why? don't know.

i put a single layer of six ounce fiberglass cloth around the outside of the inner wall.

I imagine a person can change the height of the burner(its height),potstand height(distance from pot to top of stove),the fuel used,starting temperature of the fuel used,hwo long the fuel is absorbed(before you lit it),what's inside the stove(as you said..fiberglass or empty),windscreen heights,& materials,pot heights&shapes& materials & holes,and a zillion other variables..for one stove design..I'm thinking you've only just begun Daren..I think you better not go hiking/kayaking this year and plan the rest of the summer testing that ONE DESIGN STOVE! :lol:
We DO EXPECT a full report and thesis on your results. :geek:

Oh yeah..and be sure give me a call with those results when you are done..1-800-ONP-ToleakPoint... :mrgreen:
