    Let's see what you got :)

    I'm the originator and there are a lot of DIYers out there that have made them. Tell us how you made them and where you got the idea from.

    For starters, the original:

    I actually just made one earlier this week. I use Potted meat cans...$1 for 2 at the Dollar store...because I don't like cat food :D

    I used carbon felt and part of an aluminum bottle. There's actually enough of the bottle left to make a little sideburner, but I'm not fond of that design. Flame gap is 7/8".

    Still have my original from the video above, and bought a second for my son last year. Great stove.

    Making these becomes addictive. They are a lot of fun to experiment with.

    I got a couple of yours after watching Shug's video.
    They've replaced all my stoves except for very cold trips.

    I like and use a few of the original Fancee Feest obtained from Zelph. I want to pick up a Fancee Feest with simmer ring, with that combo I my leave to Trangia at home more often.

    Thank you for your purchases and feed back. :) The FF is durable, light weight and easy to use. It's nice to have just a one piece stove. Fits easily into your favorite pot. Because the wick material have strands in the vertical position it brings fuel upwards using capillary action unlike welders carbon felt which is just an absorbing material...just like cotton. It works, but is far less efficient than what is used in the Fancee Feest.

    I have made a bunch of Fancee Feest type stoves and they all work great. Some were made from cat food cans, others from aluminum beer bottles. I used fiberglass auto body patchs for insulation and on some I use kevlar wicking. I want a real Zelph made stove cuz mine are kinda ugly.

    If using an alcohol stove, is my go to even on cold trips. The fiberglass wicking and design allows it to be used even in frigid temps. I have used mine in subzero conditions. My lowest temp was negative22*F.

    I have an ample supply of cat cans so I made my own. For the pot stand, I used a Budweiser stadium bottle I found on the side of the road(because I'll never drink that crap! Life is too short to drink shit beer). The fiberglass cloth I purchased at Home Depot for $6. Out of the alcohol stoves I have, this one is by far my favorite! Best design, Thank You Zelph!

    Thank you! And thanks for the tip on the wick! I did notice how on one stove, the wick was more flush with the rim compared to the other, but figured it wouldn't make much difference. I will now rectify my flaw... thank you again for a great designed stove!

    The tea was given to me from my friend when I told him I was having stomach issues, and yes, it has a licorice taste. I really enjoyed it!

    Shug updated his video to include a new link to purchase the Fancee Feest.

    Have you ever noticed what Shug says about Loons "looning" in his video? Does "quiet" have a place in your outdoor experience?
