Punch a hole near the edge and use it as a sipper lid
A site devoted to lightweight backpacking
That would probably work and you wouldn't get any comments from the peanut gallery for using the baby sipper lid.zelph wrote:Punch a hole near the edge and use it as a sipper lid

That v8 stove i did it also but it also work on a jet boil just play with the add on pot stand up or down.zelph wrote:Take a look to see what John over atBACKPACKINGLIGHT did with a v8 can.
It works with a heineken pot.
In addition to that I flipped my Heiny.
I've always disliked the curvature of the bottom of the heineken pot. When I made the cobalt to fit a Heinekin I went through the same hassel of the curved bottom. While making the stove to fit the heiny I got the idea to turn the can upside down and use the flat top of the can as the bottom. Here is what I came up with.
I have not but wanted to pass on this link that was recently given by Papa John on how to build a caldera cone. It's a video.rigidpsycho wrote:Has anyone here made a caldera Cone for the Heiney Pots?

Holy Moly!!!! What a find. Now to test it under boiling water.
Holy Moly it's made of food grade steel. Put a wooden knob on the top of it and you'll probably be able to lift the pot off the stove, by the lid, without burning your fingers like those guys do with the fiberglass wrapped pots.(me when I tested it)
Holy Moly, that deserves a free stove, send me your address in a PM.
Allen don't go outside. Front brake pads have asbestos in them and truck brake pads even more. Every time breaks are put on a little asbestos goes into the air. And for sure don't eat the mints.
Thank you for your comment. You are the first to come up and say the wick doesn't work for you either.ashman45 wrote:In regards to the wick wrapping, in my opinion, does not work well for me. It insulates enough to take the pot off the stove without burning my fingers, but I could not pour the water into a freezer bad or another pot without it getting to uncomfortable to hold and risking dropping the can of hot water. I cut a strip of Reflectix and just keep it with my cook kit, or use a bandana or the like. This works better for my. I actually removed the wick wrap from one pot I bought and will use it on a stove or something.
Other people may be able to handle the heat through the wick wrap, but I guess my fingers are too sensitive
