It was a tough decision so I looked for a sign from above and when I saw some deer foraging on acorns a light went off. Acorn Stove! :lol:

sorry IR, I love the AB stove but I have to go with the more or less complete design of the ACORN. But once you get the bugs worked out of the AB - you'll have a winner.


Mutual feelings,IR..why none of mine are entered this month.I've got other projects I'm working on and won't be finishing a stove this month..Gotta go with the acorn since it seems to have the bugs out of it and ready for use on the trail... ;)

Congrats,JT! :DB:

I did redo the energizer once the top end fell off..now it weighs 1-1/2oz,is 2" in diameterX5/8" high and holds a maximum just about 13ml....less than 1/2 of an ounce.
Using my lightweight 4"+ pan,water got to about 200 degrees..I need to experiment with a skinnier,taller pan and a better windscreen to get the boil..burns for about 18 minutes tops.

Makes a nice keychain stove or coffee warmer.. ;)

just tinkering wrote:I would like to thank everyone for their energy and support. This has been a great site to share ideas about stoves and other goodies. As far as the ACORN stove, I am working on the second generation design and hope to have some system level testing (pot stand, windscreen and all) by next month. Additionally, I am working on getting all my testing done to a standardized methodology (better tracking of fuel and evironmental conditions). Again, thank you all for your support.
