do you think you may be passing by that way any time soon , would you be able to pick me one up
I think I may have got the last red one, cream colour do you?! I'll try and post a picture, although Photobucket is trying my patience the last couple of days. I'll see what I can do!
cream sounds lovely, after the first firing they will both look the same anyhow , and black is the new red this year
Photobucket is doing it's thing. God knows how long it will take, it is giving me the right hump lately! The picture has come out with an orange tinge to the front of the drainer, bit wierd but as you say, it'll probably all burn off after the first firing! I may be going back that way before Delamere so I'll pick one up for you, if I can get the photo to work you can decide whether it will suit your purposes.
Now, that was quick! I've waited for half an hour or more over the last few days!
cheers spam, don't make a special journey, only if your passing, i've got the 12cm billy myself so if you say it's a good fit, i think it will do nicely. again no worries if you don't go that way i'll get somethig sorted sooner or later
yea that looks cool, i can see the pic now.
Cross post there I think, you should be able to see the picture now!
this remind's me of a two ronnies sketch, mastermind contestant who's answer's were to the question before last
catch u later m8t
Right then, I'll pick one up. I'm gonna shamelessly nick The Vikings' skewer idea aswell, so I'll be picking some up. I'll bring them along aswell.
if you havn't already bought the skews spam i've got a 6 pack here, they need cutting to lenght, but should do the job nicely, your welcome to a couple of them
After meeting wayland at delamere, I thought id have a go at making a similar stove after a trip to morrisons.
I took it to the bushmoot and it worked rearly well, but as usual got me thinking of other designs.
I liked the look of the colapseable stove from chris randall ( No conection etc found out thro here) so out came the credit card! obviously I didn't make it or get it for £4 but I like the way it flat packs down into a CD sized wallet, and thought it would work well with a BCB crusader mess tin (still waiting for this after 5weeks!) The bonus being i can have a fry up without an extra pan, as well as boiling and its easy it eat out of. U can also as put a bail on it.
Hope I havent offended cylinder fans here and any comments would be welcome. Especially if u think im wasting my time. Also have a mini trangia to try with it.
So after reading all through thsi thread and being totally amazed, does this rate better than a trangia?
I have the swedish army one which is nice and packs together but heavy.
Many thanks, I will take you up on that offer. One less thing to go hunting around for!
By the way, has anybody got a Camelbak cleaning kit they can bring to Delamere? I've just found an old Camelbak that has started its' own little world and has 'stuff' growing in it! I've got the worst out, but the pipe is a problem as you can imagine.
It should be blue.
It's black at the moment!
Using an oil can will be better, increases the life of the bit.
I reckon mine is about the same as a trangia on meths but I can also use hexy or available fuels like pine cones or twigs.
It's certainly lighter than my stainless trangia, don't know about the ally one.
Still using this occasionally after all these years.
It's very similar to my setup. Made up around the same time too...
Still using it then?
