I know the profiler is real stovie nerd stuff but I am unable to help myself, I expect a visit from men in white coats soon. :DB: :DB: :DB:


Yep, they have your number(s)

I've been dreaming about an infra red laser heat sensing gun mounted above a steel plate to profile a flame. It has an infra red camera attachment for still shots and a video for night time viewing. :ugeek:

Nice job on the mechanical apparatus to maneuver the probe. Your nerdy activity goes in many directions. ;)

Whoa!!!! you'll be going after the spring trout soon no doubt :D Make sure you use trekking poles, heal quickly, eat more fish, take fish oil supplements :o

We want more nerd stuff!!!!

You do realize that you have just invented the multi-doneness-multiple steak-cooker don't you?

Place three steaks on the profiler. Program the computer to move the plate over your heat source as needed. Steaks done to perfection and all ready to serve at the same time :)

I have thought about doing the same but decide to try the profiler instead.

This photo of my mate Dave was taken by me last weekend by me, and yes that is snow, we caught 6 small trout.

I have been planning this flame profiler for a few years now and I have been collecting bits and pieces since, I started to build the profiler about a 18 months ago but due to distractions the development stalled several times, the profiler project is still in its early days and as I am learning from it, I still have some development and improvements to do.My fascination with bushwalking stoves has driven me to what is possibly a first for a hobby stovie, I have made myself a stove flame profiler which can do 1D and 2 D profiles of a backpacking stove flame.


Hang in there, you'll get it made someday. You have a clever way of describing your project. ;)
