I bought a stove from Shady Rascal. After reading his screen name, I was a bit hesitant. I went for it it anyhow. How bad could it be for the cost of a hamburger and fries? All I have to say is AWESOME! Something so simple yet so functional. I used running alcohol as the fuel.

My wife looked at me like I was crazy when I told her it was a mini stove. After all, I have a jetboil kit. She looked at me even more crazy when I went running for the rubbing alcohol and started to pour it in. I used a lighter to start it up and viola, I had a nice orange flame. After about 2 mintues, the side vents cought fire and lit up. I heard, "oh wow! That looks like a mushroom." SHe's happy, i'm happy, the kid laughed a bit, it was worth the 9 dollars to the door. I"ll probably be using it more once I get the man cave done. :)

Very cool little stove.

I did read the entire thread....so please don't shoot me if this has been covered

1. How do you turn it off once you've done with it or do you basically just let it burn out ?

2. How much for 2 shipped to MA ?

Cheers

I think that you really should put stever stove in a searchable area in this thread instead of just in the picture. Oops I guess that I just did.

Someone had mentioned one earlier in another thread and I was unable to find any threads about it.

Hey, to put it out just let it burn out.

2 of them shipped to MA would be like 100 bucks in a perfect (for me) world, but call it 18 and I'll get 'em right out.

Super, thanks.

If I were Bill Gates, I'd be happy to send 100 bucks but since I 'aint, 16 it is

Bit o' new info.

Made a couple dozen stoves today, and tried an idea from alert ADVer MPanther:

Question about putting out a bit less heat. for simmering and the like.

what about making some with 8 holes instead of 14?
would that make the flames to long or would it work as a bit less BTU's and longer burn time? this might be a way to have a boiling stove and a "keep warm" stove.

Just a thought.
So I made one with 7 holes instead of 14. Made sense to try it. Here is what it looks like burning:



I put 2 ounces of Heet in this one, got a pot boiling (on a different stove) with 2 cups of water in it, the transferred to the 8 hole stove. It bubbled along happily, a pretty good boil actually, however a little less boisterous than with a regular stove going. This was inside my shop with no air movement like you'd have outside, and would keep the easy boil going without the lid on in this environment. Bonus point though, the thing burned for about 19 minutes on the 2 ounces, so you are stretching your Heet out very well this way.

Good idea MPanther, and you have a new 7 hole SteverStove which I'll call SimmerStove headed your way. Anyone else wants one, just let me know, same price as a regular stove. I save a little time in production by not drilling the rest of the holes, so I can claim now an even larger and obscene profit margin.

Also, for Coop74 whom I'm sending a handful of stoves, here is how to quickly tell how much alcohol to put in the stove.

1.5 ounces fills to the bottom radius of the inner neck:



And 2 ounces fills to the upper part of the curve on said neck:



It was requested I mark these for some folks, but the levels fell right on these parts which makes it easy to remember.

Wow, 19 minutes is a long run time.

I'm very glad it worked out like that, and Thanks for the SimmerStove!

Good info on the 1.5/2 oz fill marks. Cool how you don't need to scribe the spots.

I love mine. I have been cooking with them in the kitchen to get some practice. Can't wait to use them on the road.

Seems to work great but how is stabilty out in the field? When your camping you dont have a 100% level concreet floor instead your probably on a wobly field. How you guys cope with that and what would happen if the stove would actually tip over?

Don't cook in your tent. Problem solved.

Ten bucks total should handle it for Canada. Shit, I better get out in the shop and start making some more of these things with 7 holes in them.

Lol, that's a good sign right?

I put an order for another one. A buddy was sold on it as soon as he saw mine. I don't care how many holes it has as long as it heats up meh water. :)
