[NT post Aus] Starlyte-style ultralight stove

Postby enlightened0ne » Fri 27 Oct, 2017 5:14 pm

Hi all,

Since Zelph doesn't ship to Australia, I'm making Starlyte-style stoves for my own ultralight backpacking. Total weight is between 9g and 13g depending on the size, and the stove can hold 30mL of metho without spilling. With a caldera cone such as the ones produced by trail designs, 500mL of water will reach a rolling boil using 15mL of fuel. I typically use 12mL of metho and mix in 3mL of water, which is equally effective and saves fuel. After making my own stoves and testing quite a lot I've still got heaps of material left over, so I'm happy to make them for others.

I have 2 versions of the stove- a smaller wedding favour tin, and a larger aluminium soda can version.

If anyone is interested in one I'm happy to make and send them for $15 + shipping each. PM me if you want one.

Sent off a couple more. Here's the way I'm making the soda can versions (they're a bit lighter and more rigid than the wedding tin ones)

I bought a sofa can version. It looks great, really well made, and super light weight. Can’t wait to give it a test run. Thanks again!
