XMAS Mini Trangia Stove---Santa made a "Sangia"

Postby Ridgerunner » Fri Dec 21, 2007 10:23 pm

I threw together a mini Trangia stove that could easily be made half the size into a Micro Trangia burner :D The first pic gives you an idea of size comparison to the factory model. In the background, you can see my Busch camo penny stove that exploded on me. :o

The following pics show the stove fired up using 91% alcohol !

The stove was fairly easy to make once I found the right can to work with. I took a fuel cannister and used a can opener to take the lid off. Then I trimmed the lids base down to fit just inside the tea candle lid. I cemented it in with some jb-weld and drilled my burner holes, added some wick material and an inside wall, cemented the two halves of the candle tin together and presto---the ol' Stumpjumper has a Christmas present coming. I could further reduce the size , using a wedding favor tin.

Merry Christmas to All and Happy Hiking!

Very nice indeed Ridgerunner. I would think it don't take long at all to bloom and the jets are in full thrust. Lots of flame, does it burn fast and furious because of the aluminum fuel resevoir?

Good idea of using the mouth off of the Magic Heat. I did that on an aluminum canteen, one of those old saucer looking ones. The JB weld failed after a few burns, don't know why. I wanted to make a nasarangia :lol:

I put 1 1/2 ounces of fuel in it and turned it upside down overnight---no leakage :D I did not thinl it would as Magic Heat fuel is liquid also. I did have to grind the lip of the teacandle lid down flush so that the threads were high enough that the seal on the lid made contact with the top of the threads.

It lights easy and flames fast. The jets take close to 30 seconds to take off good. My wick material was pieces of lamp wick all the way around. I don't know if that would make a difference in how fast the jets take off or not. I used jb weld on both side of the flange. I might even put a coat on the outside at the bottom of the threads for extra seal protection. I've always had good luck with jb-weld though EXCEPT when we used it to try to fix the cracked head on my old Corolla :( And Yes, my workbench is a mess, always. The wife does not like to look over to my side of the garage. :lol: Oops is a very fortunate man and I am extremely envious! :mrgreen:

I love blackberry anything ! Drink half the bottle, take off your glasses, stand on your head and everything will come to your head including the third stove!

TWO BORDE BOMBS ----you are truely blessed Mr. Oops! ;)

What I did was cut off the top of a magic Heat cannister just to salvage the threaded spout and lid, which has a thick wall, which allows wicking material to be placed up to the jet ports.

Just for the fun of it, can anyone guess what the object in the first picture laying next to the Kmart grease pot is? It looks like a pen with a pocket clip. I had never seen one until i bought this one.
