Ordered Sun 3:55 PM received Wed 10:00AM - fast

Works exactly as described…It’s small size is a big asset. Perfect for coffee or oatmeal. But i should have order 2 or 3 of them. I have the White Box Stove and the Stever Stove is WAY BETTER BUILT!!!, much thicker aluminum.

See pictures.



˝ quart of water boiling in about 2 minutes.


Bottle of HEET and 2 stoves would easily fit in my Ag-Supply tube.


Only problem is I SHOULD HAVE ORDERED 2 OR 3 STOVES.


I’ll definitely make a little folding alumunium stand to hold two Stever Stoves….sort of like an outhouse seat. 2 or 3 stoves would let you use one while refueling the other one.

ShadyRascal you are, sitting on about 20 Lewis and Clark campsites…I was all over your neighborhood this summer… here’s one Lewis & Clark campsite down the street from your shop, with GPS coordinates…go see it.

Hey Lewis and Clark, thanks for the nice write-up. I'll go to those coordinates to see that site. L/C had lunch one day (Sep 1805?) right about down the hill from my house...which is located in about the bottom right corner of the above map. I would imagine you went through the Travelers Rest camp, they found mercury there a few years back and nailed down the actual spot.

One the site above

and GPS coordinates. Clark and about 22 troops camped there and during the night a bunch of Indians (probably Blackfoot) stole a bunch of their horse that they were never able to recover. Travelers Rest...the mercury was used in a laxative for the troops...some archiologists took extensive soil samples at Travelers Rest back in 2002 and pretty positively proved where their latrine was located. Seriously there must be 30 L & C campsites within 50 mile radius of your place. You ought to ride over Gibbons Pass, if you haven't already. Very close to your place.

Yep been up on a lot of that stuff, Gibbons from the Big Hole goes down and meets Lost Trail pass on the Idaho side (right at a kickass Mexican restaraunt). You know that would make a good ride, to map out a bunch of those L&C sites and ride to them for photos.

That would make an interesting mini-rally.

Hey Steve, I tried your stove on a little ATV run we had before Christmas and I gotta say it worked Perfectly...I boiled a can of Chili in about 5 minutes. It's hard to see the flame in the daylight but I felt the heat coming off of it for sure



I tried the Canadian Tire version of gas line antifreeze and it works great too. It says Methyl Alcohol so I figured Why not! Clean burn too! It's a choice if someone doesn't see any Heet. It comes in small 150ml black bottles with red labeling and is in a 6 pack so easy to carry 1, 2 or all if needed so us Canadian folk can have an alternative in case they're in a pinch!

Here's the link if someone wants a look...
It sells for $3.99/6 pack!

Thanks Again,

Mike

SR, I got my stoves in the mail the other day. Very cool! Works exactly as advertised. I ordered 2 so I can boil a cup of coffee and fix a bowl of oatmeal at the same. Good stuff!

Hi - These look really cool, and I accept from all the posts that they work as well also. But I gotta wonder - with a can or pot sitting right on top of the stove, how does the fire get any oxygen? Is there another path I can't see in the photos?

Just wondering

If you look closely at the picture above, you can see the blue flames coming out of the holes in the side.

After it warms up a bit, you can light the evaporating alcohol coming out of the holes. then you set the pot, cup, can on top of the stove and the flame then only comes out of the holes.

OK, I see that. So the oxygen mixes with the alcohol just as it leaves the holes. But if the pot is right on top of the burner, it looks like there can't be a flame on the inside of the stove. And with no burning on the inside of the stove, what makes the alcohol evaporate and flow through the ring of holes? Just residual heat from start up? Normal evaporation of the alcohol? Again, I understand that they DO work, I'm just trying to figure out how.

Thanks
