entry for march

Postby DarenN » Sun Mar 15, 2009 8:52 pm

this one is for "SGT Rock"

i've been playing around with this stove for a few years, and built another this morning. it's quite possibly the best open top jet type burner that has ever been invented.

including the potstand it weighs 11 grams.
max. cap. 3/4ounce.
15 ML of methyl hydrate boils two cups of water in 7:50, with flame out at 8:35.
pot used for this testing was a new 6" diameter "Hard Anodized" aluminum pot with lid.

just bloomed and still warming up:

with the pot on top:

SGT Rock recently announced that he was no longer going to have this stove available for sale.

No photo of a burning stove is like mashed potatos without gravy.

We need the gravy Daren :mrgreen:

(Sgt. Rock was refering to the ION) I can't remember the name given to the one you made, sorry.

Zelph, I can't tell the difference between Daren's ION stove and a regular ION stove.
The Turbo V8 looks a little taller but basically the same as well.

The one big difference I see compared to the picture linked in my previous paragraph is that Daren's stove looks great. Very clean and professional.

Darens stoves always look great and Professional :roll: :DP:

Sgt Rock upgraded his ION by using the aluminum Wedding Favor Tin and now it looks totally different. Sorry I'm on a fly and not able to get a quick link for all.

if i'm not mistaken this was the first version to be called "ION". upgrades were made but the name of the stove stayed the same. check this link:

That's it, gravy and eye candy :D

Would you call your stove a top jetted pop can stove? Is it made with a pop can?

i make these out of "V8" juice cans. the little "one shot" ones. very close in size, (if not identical to), the red bull can. V8 is way less bad for you than that red bull crap, (or any of the other energy drinks for that matter).

what to call it? hhhmmmm?
an open top, top jetted, integrated potstand, brushed finished aluminum, juice-can stove. how's that? ;) :D
maybe we should just call it "SGT Rocks ION".
