My latest effort was only 34 mb and 8+ minutes and each time i loaded it, it said it was complete but only plays for 5 minutes and stops. Any ideas? Well my niece hooked me up an account on youtube and we tried loading it there. Here is the link, not sure if it works.

Very nice stove!

As for the video thing, the maximum video length for a FREE account at Photo Bucket is 5 minutes. The maximum video length for a PRO account is 10 minutes. The maximum upload file size for both is 100MB. PhotoBucket FAQ

***EDIT***

Well, I should have finished reading the thread before posting. :oops:

No, I don't think so. We need a late entry pulled from previous posts. Anybody got a stove previously entered but ddidn't win enter it today and tomorrow. At the end of the day tomorrow we vote. We can't just let him have it so easy. Life isn't just that way :mrgreen:

I can't believe July is gone already!!!!!!!

thanks Ridgerunner, but it's a fuel hog. takes a full ounce of Methyl Hydrate to boil two cups.

Wonder why? Might be your wicking material. Not all stoves are gas mizers :lol: What is the diameter of the tin? I have some polish tins for travel that are pretty small.

same wicking i've used in all my screen topped burners, and some of them will boil on very little fuel. it's the size of the burner, i'm sure. 3 1/2" diameter. the little (2" diameter) polish tin i brought up for July is the same construction and boils two cups on 17ml Methyl Hydrate.

Diameter---that's what I figured. It's the design that matters. Use a smaller tin. consider it still nominated on design structure and it works ! ;)
