Are you asking about the center pot support in the stove or the windscreen?

Now you've got me wondering.. :lol: I was assuming a windscreen... :o..Sometimes I use it for both..as you can see in the picture..I do have another two handled 5" pot that fits nicely up to the handles,which hold it up,as long as the stove isn't too high.

I think he was talking pot support. Realityguy confused me :o

Try some super glue. Overlap 1". Use 000 steel wool to clean both surfaces well. Somebody try it, anybody....let us know if it works (stove science 101)

I think you are right..talking potstand...I don't think super glue would hold too well..lot of heat there..

I made a fancee feest, but I couldn't get 2 cups of water to boil on .5 oz. Any suggestions?

Use an aluminum pot, 5.5 inches in dia. Use denatured alcohol and 70 degree beginning water temp.

How close did you come?

Boiling is actually a tremendous waste of energy. The phase change from liquid to gas provides no benefit to cooking. The boil is just a convenient visual reference that lets us know we got the water hot w/o the need for a thermometer. Sorry. Getting off topic. :)

On the previous post, I was speaking of the pot stand. Sorry for the confusion. I ended up using a stapler to connect the ends. I put.5 oz of denatured alcohol and it burned about 5 min. I was using a windscreen and a hineken pot, indoors. The final temperature was 170F. What do you guys think?

:lol: ..Not really..RR and I are famous for that..See? :lol:

Yeah..My mistake for going towards the windscreen,sorry about that..Stapling it might be a good way to go..looks like Zelph is welding his stainless.I think I'd be more apt to use stainless than aluminum for longevity.I would think the tighter more airtight the joint the better it will burn.The height of the pot above the flame may be a factor also.Zelph has done more testing on that and can give you a better idea of the best height for the most efficient burn.
