Excellent work Timo! Nice and simple and storing it around the pot is slick too.
What did you use to cut the metal?Dec 26, 2009 at 1:56 am #1557000
First i try saw, but i break my saw… Then i try garden scissors what work very well.Dec 26, 2009 at 12:12 pm #1557090Mikael O
Very good idea, did you find the hooks also on Ikea? Will go there tomorrow.Dec 26, 2009 at 2:01 pm #1557109Jeff Antig

The "hooks" are titanium tent stakes…Dec 26, 2009 at 6:05 pm #1557137Steven EvansBPL Member
Great idea! I actually have one of those from Ikea – I use it to store utensils.Dec 26, 2009 at 8:59 pm #1557206bj bretzke

Cool design Timo!Dec 28, 2009 at 3:35 am #1557510
I test the ikea stove. Must make bigger holes. It is almost perfect, but it needs more air.Dec 28, 2009 at 6:26 am #1557520tkkn cBPL Member

I copied your idea. Now I need to go test it out. My wife wondered what I was up too, when I asked her if she wanted to go to Ikea.Dec 28, 2009 at 7:27 am #1557525Tim MarshallBPL Member
"It is almost perfect, but it needs more air"
Perhaps, but to me it looks like it just needs a better pot support. If the pot was raised above the fuel 2-3" i think the results would be much better.

Instructions about this and experience reports are widely available on some German Outdoor Forums.Dec 28, 2009 at 9:51 am #1557558Michael Skwarczek
Tim is spot on. I haven't watched Hendrik's video yet, but when I saw this last night, besides thinking it was a brilliant, I could tell that the pot was way too low and would choke the fire. Even large holes, which I don't think are necessary, wouldn't help.
I can see that you wanted the design to be compact, but try not cutting the utensil holder down at all, and cut the feeder opening alone. There'll be more room for a charge of wood, and room enough for air/flame.
cheers on the fantastic project!

New desing. I think this would be better.Dec 28, 2009 at 3:00 pm #1557635
I want to keep it simple as possible and it do not take any space of my pack or pot with this design.Jan 3, 2010 at 9:26 pm #1559224Dave HeissBPL Member

How well is the revised design working for you?Jan 4, 2010 at 8:48 am #1559304Tim MarshallBPL Member
if you still need more space between the fuel and the pot experiment with using vertical stakes to hold the pot instead of horizontal. The stakes can lift the pot the 2-3" extra inches needed for a better burn with nothing extra to carry (well 1 more stake but i'd think you have it anyway)I have done this with many can stove and using the hook against the pot has proven very workable, the skewer end is less so. I drill small holes in the bottom of my cans where the point of the stake will stick (but not pass through) then i pass the stake through a large hole and put the tip in the little hole. This has worked for stoves of smaller diameter than the pot, not sure if it will work when the pot and stove are about the same diameter.
