Portable stove used in shelterbox
« on: March 14, 2011, 04:10:27 PM »
I was watching some vids of Japan and noticed shelterbox.  After a donation I noticed their nifty lil stove...
Anybody else want one (cannot seem to find it anywhere but in the UK)...

I'm assuming that you're referring to the wood burning stove? That does look like a nice little stove. I'm also curious about the multi fuel stove they mention. The description says that it "can burn anything from diesel to old paint." They show a Coleman 533 Dual Fuel stove, but either that stove can burn more than I thought or they're talking about a different one. I'd be impressed with any stove that can reliably burn old paint!

i've seen similar wood stoves like that, very simple design. Look for cylinder wood stoves, As far as multifuel stoves as long as you can pressurize the fuel and adjust both fuel to air ratio you can practically burn anything...

The stove looks neat, but a similar-sized rocket stove would outperform it...IMHO.  And dry debris for fuel might be difficult to find, from what I've seen on the idiot box.
