    Mine came while I was on vacation, I've yet to try it. I showed it to some friends and they were definately impressed with the small size and workmanship.

    I fired up the little stove this afternoon and boiled some water for tea. It worked well and it definately gets hot. :thumbup:thumbup It'll go in my permanent on-bike carry list.

    Got mine and have been trying it out, works great very happy! Thanks for a nice and affordable product.

    For a windscreen that's packable, I cut a piece of round snap-together duct I had laying around to 1" above the stove's height. It can be "un snapped" and carried flat, assembled in a round shelter letting in as much or as little air as you want, and you can raise/lower the stove inside the ring using flat rock or with dirt to make different heat settings.

    I think what you are doing there is great.
    If it helps you out, send one my way, I'll do up a proper photo, and video clip for you, even swap, no charge.

    If you're gonna manufacture and market, you might as well get it done right.

    How the heck does it get oxygen when a pot is on top of it?

    Well it does need and use a steady stream of outside air, if you put a wind screen around it 360 degrees, the flames die right down unless you have notches cut in the bottom of your windscreen. And, I believe methyl alcohol has lots of oxygen content to it (for instance alcohol burning motors are jetted ridiculously rich). But I dunno much on the physics of it. Stove burn great with pot on, me cook food.

    This is useless without pictures.

    Put a couple of new pictures of my stoves on the original post, taken by fellow ADV rider and pro photog Dumbdog. Very nice I might add.

    Got my stove today. Man, this little thing is too cool. Boiled enough water for aeropress in 5 minutes. Nice and compact, for the price and size everyone should have one.
