Small wool stove
 
Hi all,
I was looking for a small foldable wood stove to replace my trangia to save space. Found a few from the US but all very expensive with the postage costs, I did however, find this and have ordered one. What ya think?

I bet you're going to have to re-lanolin that thing every time you make a pot of coffee.

Will you use it to cook mutton?

They're great for when you're on the lamb!

You're gonna get cold after you burn your socks and sweater.

Will steel wool work?

They roll,rather than fold,but still pack relatively small.

Are you going to be in New Zealand a lot? You may have difficulties with that stove in a lot of the U.S. Although areas of Utah in the spring and SouthWest Colorado might work. You may be able to go to thrift stores and get really cheap sweaters that may work. Be careful, I think a lot of wool items have some acrylic in them that may not burn well, or at the very least, may stink.
Can you burn cotton in it too? or is it limited to wool?
My neighbor has sheep, and maybe I could get you some scraps, although usually the scraps are from the 'end' and are covered with poop; Maybe it would work though, kinda like burning cow pies...:D

I love this place! ONE little typo... and the man's balls are BUSTED! :lol3 :rofl

ANYWAY, just for some useless trivia, on a serious note, WOOL DOES NOT BURN. I remember my welding instructor in trade school telling me "a wool shirt is best to wear to resist sparks' and I remember thinking, "THAT sounds comfortable, NOT!" I've since proven it over and over. The MIRACLE fiber, insulates well when wet, won't burn! :freaky

I'm not a big camper, but why would you want a wood stove to take with you? Can't you just build a fire and put a rack over it when you camp? I had always thought the point of bringing a portable stove was to have something you could burn gas or other fluids in, not some metal box you put wood in?? Or am I missing something? :ear

Yup, you are. By containing and focusing the combustion, a wood-burning camp stove will cook a meal with very little fuel material, perhaps equivalent to what one may need to simply start a normal sized "campfire". Large pieces of wood may not always be available, but one could cook a meal using damp fuel or even newspaper if used correctly in an efficient, small stove. Small enough, a stove similar to the above would be a good backup, whether intending to cook by liquid fuel or campfire.

Cheers!

Irish storm kettles are pretty amazing. One of my friends made his own out of coffee cans and solder. You can boil water with a few twigs, he put whistle, coffee drip system, and milk steamer attachments on his.

Reason
 
The reason I like this stove is because it can burn wood or other solid fuels or I can use the Trangia fuel burner depending where I am. Some campsites won't let you use wood over here so I have a choice. I can also use the Trangia gas burner I have so I don't have to buy anything else to fit the new stove. I can use what I already have.
