Jan. Entry #1 for Ridgerunner---"007 Stove"

Postby Ridgerunner » Mon Jan 07, 2008 9:26 pm

This stove was inspired from Oops' lipstick stove. Like the lipstick stove, it looks like something completely different than what it is. Kind of like Maxwell Smart talking into his shoe or James Bond communicating with his pen, thus the name "007" and the fact it was in the secret labratory at the end of 2007. :lol:

To start with, let me say that this stove is not the smallest, not the lightest, and not the hottest but it is unique. The highlight to this stove is that it can hold a couple ounces of fuel without leaking in your pack. I tested it overnight inverted with two ounces with no leakage. It does have an adjustable wick cylinder which allows for simmering capabilities.

The stove opened up for all to see :lol:

An interesting obsevation was when I turned the stove over so the wick pointed down, the flame really increased in size. :?

This is my favorite picture. Take note Oops, this is my version (as close as I will get) of the BORDE BOMB !!!!! :ugeek:

It boiled two cups of water under 8 minutes but i did not actually time it. I think the stand supports might need to be lowered to achieve maximum efficiency. I also think I might place a little piece of hardware cloth across the supports to help allow even flame distribution. The cylinder is a curtain rod marked down to $2 at Lowes. The opening had to be honed a little and the tolerance is pretty tight to help prevent leakage when opened up in the horizontal position. An ounce will sit in the stove and not even reach the cylinder port because of the shape of the stove. This model will leak if too much fuel is put in the tank but with the right absorbing material, I suspect that could be minimized or eliminated. Oh, by the way, removing the felt from the inside of the Sharpie was no easy task. The next size down Sharpie is also aluminum. So the possibility of a smaller "007" exist but I will leave that to other stovies as the next project is in the works.

Originally had 24 pin holes but it did not burn well so I cut the area completely out to give more oxygen. It can be fueled by removing the cylinder and pouring into the chamber or the fuel can slowly be poured into the wick area or the cylinder can be parially pulled out and dunked into your fuel bottle.

That's funny. I just finished cleaning out a similar, but smaller, marker for the exact same reason.
I'm still looking for a wick. Your marker seems to be larger and more suited to a stove.

And yes, my hands are black.

No, but it took quite awhile to keep pulling out tiny pieces. I had to be careful as I did not want to damage the opening.

I have the smaller marker also. It has about a 1/4 inch hole to play with. I'm not sure how well that would work. :roll:

For the smaller marker, I used some sort of a small knitting needle, with a hooked end. The marker smelled like it would burn as is, and did for a bit. Then it went out. :(
I was actually thinking of standing it up instead of laying it down, with a lowered wick to be used as a lantern.
How did you assemble the wick? Is there a cap on the end of the metal wick?

Okay, who's going to try this with an aluminum beer bottle?

Cool idea/stove Ridgerunner. 007 BordeBombe, hand held incendiary device/stove. :mrgreen:

Keep looking for the right length container to make it a self contained package deal to hold the burner also in the prone position.

The bottom of the marker has a recessed bottom that looks like it could be filled with JB weld and then drilled and tapped to make it the fill port. I'll take alooksee if I can find something to put into the end ofit to make the fill port and send it along with your stove.

First, I rolled ia small piece of fine mesh screen into a "tootsie roll" and the wrapped a piece of fiberglass cloth around it. This slides into the curtain rod which has a female threaded end that i left that section on intentionnally so that I could put a bolt in the end to have something to grab hold of to slide the tube in and out. :)

As far as the aluminum beer bottle goes, there have already been stoves and pot stands mad from it. ;)

It has three ways to fill as is. The burner rod will come all the way out to allow you to pour into the resevoir if you so choose.

I know what your saying. :lol: I've seen pics of people holding a lit BordeBomb and that is the first thing that popped into my mind along with, NOW is not the time for some kind of accident as I held it. :o

Last night I fired up the "003.5 Stove", well really more of a lantern at this point.
Burn time was about 57 min, with a slightly dimished flame near the end. I'm not sure what the fuel capacity is, I'll have to check.
I used a pipe cleaner (the abrasive kind) for a wick, about 1.5 times the length of the marker tube.
I haven't tried it under a pot yet, kinda doubt it's going to bring anything to a boil, but may be good for a warmer.

And I used this to fill it.
