Maybe some of you are interested.. GoLite is having a huge sale, seems like getting rid of inventory... (I have no affiliation, just love their stuff)...



Flysheet is only $79 (down from $200) - http://www.golite.com/Shangri-La-1-Flysheet-P881.aspx. This is just the flysheet, no floor. The bugnet is currently sold out - you will also need 1 short tentpole - unless you tour with a paddle or a trekking pole

I have a Golite SL5 Tipi and stove that I made I use for winter bacpacking. The Tipi is under 3lbs and the tent stove and flue is under 2lbs. I made the stove and flue out of 0.004 stainless shimstock and it packs down very small.
I prefer my hammock for warm weather camping.

I actually coppied most of the design from Ed Ts cylinder stove. Ed uses Titanium shim stock and Titanium packpacking plates for the ends.
Here is my parts list.
1-12"X100"X.004 stainless shimstock. http://www.mcmaster.com/#stainless-s...-stock/=gfmaaa
2- 8.25" stainless burner covers.
3 - 3" aluminum turnbuckles.
about 10' 1/16" stainless cable and 3' of 1/32" cable.
2- 12" .25" aluminum tube I cut in half and threaded threaded both ends with #8X32 tape for legs.
2- halk saw blades for leg bases, already drilled perfectly.
1- 12" .35" brass tube I cut in half for a pot to sit on top.
1- old sink strainer for flue screen in the base of flue.
1- piece of galv for dampner with a 20d nail hamered flat in the middle.
1- ziplock bag and plastic water bottle bottle for storage.
It puts out alot of heat with very little wood fuel. I think it will raise the temp in my tipi from 20 to 50 in less then 20 minutes. I think total cost was about $85 in material. Probably woth paying Ed for one of his unless you are like me and like fabricating things yourself.

It looks great but how did you make the "ends" in the stove?

I just used some 8.25" stainless burner covers. I used a dremil tool to cut a door and drilled some draft holes.

I will try and get some better pictures this weekend. I had the stove jack sewn in by a local alteration place, and added a little extra high temperature silicone.
There is so many ways you can go with building tent stoves, I am always thinking of different things to fab one out of. Some of the hunting and outdoor forums have some very creative examples.
