for May.

Postby DarenN » Tue May 20, 2008 8:58 pm

this stove works so well i just have to post it.
the "Jolgia"

Image

maximum capacity is two ounces.
lid with gasket seals in fuel.
adjustable simmer cap.
integrated potstand.

18ml of Methyl Hydrate boils 2cups of water in 9:45 with flame out at 11:30.

fits the Heiny pot like a dream:

this stove has been field tested.
over a four day trip i used 60ml of fuel per day. this includes one day where it had to burn for about half an hour to boil crabs.
it works well.

much thanks has to go to Ridgerunner for inspiration.

Nice stove darenN. How much does it weigh including the potstand? Is it made with a cat food can? I like the name of it, sounds mediteranian :)

thanks!

the burner, cap, simmerer, and potstand weigh----- 1.3oz = 36grms

yes, aluminum cat food can.

the name is from the Jolt cola can used for the top of the burner and Trangia for the burner it is patterned on.

In the footsteps of the Sangia and Sgt. York stove the Jolgia is one fine ultralight Trangia knock-off. One vote coming your way ! ;)

Once you put the simmer device on do the jets cease to function and only the center area burn fuel? Take a peek in there and see if you can tell what's going on :mrgreen:

the jets that are visible through the holes are burning, but very slowly. not much air gets in so it really cuts down the burn.

Is there an inner wall in this stove? If so, how did you make it?

welcome to the board cameronjreed!
yes, there is an inner wall. it's made from a beercan, cut just the right length, slit halfway from either side, rolled and the slits locked with the tabs to the inside. basicly, it's the same as the inner wall on a Pepsi-G.
