Yeah, it looks at least 10 minutes old in that photo. So a curious mind has to ask...burn or cut and stove related?

I have been using a very similar stove for a few years now. Have cooked for up to a family of 5 hungry cyclists using a single stove. They are really a great design, and do not self destruct.

I do offer one caution...... watch table tops, I managed to brand a whole pile of picnic tables and benches across the country. I generally wet down the table where I am cooking, if I remember. I suspect it may be the reflected heat from the bottom of the pot which may ignite things. It may also be as a result of multiple fills cooking things like spaghetti.

If you ever need a replacement windscreen any place that sells MSR stoves will have a windscreen and a reflective plate which will reduce boil times out doors.

Thanks for the tip on the windscreen.

I'd add just be careful anywhere. My first camping trip I set it on a rock with a tiny wobble and I dumped boiling water on myself and spilled a bunch of flaming alcohol all over a huge bed of pine needles in a nat. forest.

It was wetter than hel after several days of rain, but it was sure a eye opening experience, if it's happened in desert brush with a little wind who knows And it hurt

Hey Sam, for Canada just add a buck or two to your total, that'll cover us.

Thanks,
Steve

I just sent a PM and paypal money for two regular and one simmer. I am going to take the Vespa GT up to Nova Scotia from the Big Apple with a buddy riding a Vespa GTS. Once we get to Nova Scotia we plan on switch from hotels to camping for several days and we could use a small, light, easy to pack stove for a few meals and I think this will be perfect!

I made one of the beer can models that uses the penny inside, along with a bent coathanger folding tripod. This thing weighs nothing and is very compact. I thought I was in stove heaven until I saw how much fuel I needed to carry in order to actually cook anything. I also have a stainless steel alcohol stove very similar to your design, and it, too, usually needs several refills to finish cooking a meal.

My old Coleman Peak 1 is about a zillion times hotter, can boil and simmer easily, and with a full tank will cook several meals before needing refilling.
As neat as it was to make one of these alcohol stoves, I think the weight savings is a wash because of the fuel needs. Your design is obviously larger and more robust, but I wonder if you factored the actual fuel requirements between it, and say a Coleman multifuel that uses unleaded gas right out of your motorcycle's tank? My guess is that the Coleman is probably the better choice. Granted, there are more parts and thus more potential problems, but if you keep them serviced properly and give them a good cleaning before the season begins, you should be good to go.

Heck, if they keep increasing the ethanol in our fuel, we'll all be using alcohol bikes before long!

Stever Stove $9.00..... Wt. less than 1 pound with pint of fuel
Coleman Peak 1 $80.00 Wt. 2 pounds fuel of fuel

You can cook dinner with either of these. Two or three meals worth of fuel fits in the plastic bottle. It's just a matter of what you feel like carrying.
