I'll apologise in advance for the cellphone pics. Sorry. 1. Volcano Stove Mod Pretty simple, I just removed the wire bail and found a bit of tin to use as a lid. here's sort of how it looked unmodified (just squint and pretend the wire is there) Took the wire off. What a chore that was. Ended up popping the rivets out. The reason for the mod was I wanted to reduce the height of the unit. I don't use the aluminium canteen which came with it, so I didn't need all that internal space. I simply inserted the cup as if I was going to boil water, added a tin lid I found in the spares box and that's pretty much it. The space in the cup can hold a brew kit in a ziplock bag, while the space under the cup inside the stand can hold fuel tabs, tinder or even some fatwood pieces. here's a couple of shots of it all packed up - I intend to replace the rubber band with a piece of 25mm webbing with a ladderloc - threaded through the cup handles it'll stay put nicely and securely. 2. Low pressure multi-fuel burner. I spend a fair bit of time in remote areas every year and while I can get diesel, kerosene, gasoline, white spirit and sometimes methylated spirits (alcohol), it's hard to get gas canisters for a pocket rocket or similar. Brew ups during the day are usually with hexamine or esbit fuel, meaning I have to take a supply with me. This is still experimental - it works, but I haven't perfected it yet. It's very lightweight and fuel availability is good. Most of all, it's safe - it won't explode and you'd have to be very determined to make it spill flaming fuel everywhere. I still have to optimise it so it burns clean on all of the listed fuels,so I'll update this thread. I was inspired by this youtube vid - The "Bill Bomb" Alcohol Stove part of the Troop 73 Alcohol Stove Project - YouTube , by my zippo lighter, and by the contents of my spares box. Live test using kerosene this evening. Worked OK. The cup containing 2 standard cup measurements of water acheived a rolling boil in just over 6 minutes. Not great, but not bad. It is made from the following components: an aluminium Cuban cigar tube and cap a cap from a bottle of Potable Aqua tabs (punched a hole in it) some jute twine The same peg board too holder thingy as in the youtube vid. Diassembled for transport - note that the tube is leakproof and contains fuel in this photo The wick removed from its storage bottle - note the cap, which stays on permanently The inside of the cigar tube - The wick is fed into the tube, where it is wetted with liquid fuel if the cap fits... (it does) Slid into the toolholder and placed into position for lighting The rocket stove is brought to the burner, not the other way round Boiling lid fitted to volcano stove. ready to boil some water. The burner and stove all packed up This one is to be continued after more testing. 3. Canteen cup stand alcohol burner I have trouble using soda can stoves with the canteen cup stand. They are either too high or they have too small a capacity. This evil experiment will hopefully correct that. Please note this is a work in progress. I'm posting it before I've finished in the vain hope that someone else has done this before and has ironed out all the bugs for me Before I show you the burner, here's an easy handle arrangement for a home made lid - It's flexible, it's out of the way of the flames and it packs flat. Here's the untested prototype burner in position - Some detail shots - That's right campers, I cut the bottom off a US GI canteen cup to serve as the main body of my alcohol burner. The top is sheet brass, but it's blank and unsealed at this time since I haven't yet decided what type of alcohol burner configuration to go for. Unfortunately this system doesn't work with ALICE canteen carriers... It will work with MOLLE ones. This is a Condor canteen carrier, but it fits well in a woodland camo USGI MOLLE II I have.
