I'll have to start looking for one I need another stove A few years ago I saw in a civil War Museum a pocket stove. fit in the palm of your hand, burned alcohol. they wouldn't let me photograph it.
Wow Zelph I would love to see what tiny stove looked like. Never heard of one before and I enjoy Civil War stuff. If you find a photo on the internet of one post it. And yes you need to get a SVEA123 they are so small and light weight "for a gas stove" and by the way I seen them going up in price I would get one soon before they cost 200 or 250 for one! yikes. I got to try to hunt down a Potstand cage to replace the one I am missing with my new stove.
For Oops56 I will give the 2 red bricks a try "Great idea by the way" Now all I need to do is give my new stove a bit of cleaning up and brass polish to make it look its best.
use brass polish no steel wool
