February resealable stove

Postby Mister Krabs » Tue Feb 03, 2009 3:12 pm

Here it is, resealable stove.

Energy drink can top epoxied to an IAMS cat food base. It's a perfect fit and doesn't leak. Wickatized with a SS screen following the starlyte model. The IAMS can is steel, attracts a magnet, so it's a bit heavier than aluminum, but bombproof. The pot stand is made of gutter screen.

Boil times vary according to how much fuel is in it, from 12 minutes down to 8 or so. Slower when it is full faster when there's less fuel. I've heard that the trangias act the same way.

Nice choice for the base. I believe the can has a nice ledge for the top to be JB welded to.

How high does the fiberglass come up to the rim of the stove?

The glass and screen comes all the way up to level with the top, though I didn't get the nice even flat fit I wanted, it's somewhat domed.
The can does have a ledge, and it's even all the way around rather than bigger in one area like an aluminum can. It fits the top perfectly inside the rolled lip sitting on the ledge.

Great, you should be able to get some decent boil times and easy lighting. I would guess it holds 3 ounces of fuel?

yes, it's a 3 oz can, so minus the fiberglass plus the neck it's probably 3 oz full.

When it's full, it is very slow. I think when it has less fuel in it, the fuel heats up more easily leading to better vaporization. The same goes for when I didn't use the windscreen, it was very slow.

It lights similarly to the starlyte, very easy, no real "bloom" time.

Does the potstand wrap around the stove body for storage or is it fastened to the stoves top?
