Hello all, been lurking and reading up on things that I felt a need to learn. Anyway, here is my first attempt at a trail stove. A little background is in order. I work at a Paper mill as an Instrument man. One of the duties is to check the calibration of hazardous gas instruments. The test bottles that we use are thick walled aluminum and when empty, we throw them away. I got a coupla these bottles, made sure that they were empty, and started cutting on them. What I came up with is a cook stove, is kinda heavy, but not overly so, that should last basically for ever. Or, at least as long as I will be using it. Will fit inside a Nagalene pouch, and the support bars will fit inside the stove, along with a container of Vaseline pads to start the fire with. The support bars are made of 3/4 inch aluminum angle that I bought at Home Depot. I have tried it, and it will burn very hot with little wood. This stove is designed to use with wood, but could use any alcohol burner or others. Dimensions are 6.5 in high by 3.75 at its widest. Also, I added a small loop of stainless wire, just in case I needed to move it while it is hot. Let me know what you guys think. Also, in the second pic, you can see in the background, I am making another one, except it is with a larger hole in the side to add wood while cooking. The first one can be loaded up with larger wood after it gets going.
