In the interest of Stovie science! :ugeek:
It looks way to top heavy to me but Zelph will give us a full report, I'm sure ;)

thanks Zelph;
looking at the pic i have to assume that your measurement of "3/16 from the top" is measured to the top edge of the hole. yes?
did you measure to the bottom of the other two sets of holes? or to the hole center?

i knew i had some 2" OD S/S tubing at the shop. i cut two pieces at 5 1/2" inches today and brought them home for layout.

Yes, to the top edge of the hole. the other dimensions are to the center of the holes.

I did a little reading today and find that the stoves does not burn the fuel all the way to the bottom of the stove when wood pellets are used. The aluminum can should fare well.

Tomorrow I'll post some interesting test results made by others that own the Beaner. Everyone reading this thread hold off on purchasing one until my findings are complete and posted. Word coming in is not favorable for it to be a backpacking stove. In the real world we want to use twigs as fuel, not store bought wood or paper pellets. If we carry fuel in with us, let's carry alcohol ;)

thanks Zelph.

and if we are going to carry alcohol for fuel, why the hell would we carry a stove that weighs as much as the beaner? i'm just sayin'......
