    It's well over a year now.

    1. I've just looked on the Woodland Edge site, and if your phrase is there, it's well hidden. Searching on Google for the phrase "modified <word> stove" only gives one hit (and not BushcraftUK).

    2. Can anyone give me a pointer to this post detailing the donation?

    3. Did you receive your firebox?

    Not that difficult to spot matey. Look here... http://www.woodlandedge.co.uk/firebox.html

    And I quote "With various styles of burners available, we are pleased to have developed the advanced Woodland Edge Firebox from the modified Nimblewell stove shown on the Bushcraft UK forum."

    Also at the bottom of the page is a big Woodland trust logo with the words "We are proud to be supporting the Woodland Trust and are pleased to be making a donation for each firebox sold. " above it

    These guys are as honest and helpful as you can get and I believe Scoops did get his free stove.

    For some reason, everytime I go on the stove page of their site it locks up my browser, but only on the stove page.

    I did notice that the picture on the site shows the stove with folding legs - are these available separately as my firebox hasn't got them (but it does have the holes) ?

    The legs are available as an optional extra. They are worth while as they lift the hot part of the stove above where it can do much damage to the ground. The stoves already have holes to take the legs.:D

    Cheers Fred

    couldn't see them as an option on the page before it crashed - I've sent them an email as I like the idea of raising it up a bit more :)

    Its Just you.:) They are very different. And with respect to the duys at DD, I think they Woodland edge ones are Far higher quality.

    I have lots of hammocks but the W.E. ones are my favorite. I believe that W.E are the Sole UK Distributers of these hammocks. I actually Purchased my one from the U.S Before W.E. were distributing them. Its great to see that they are now available direct from a UK Supplier.

    I think the Woodland Edge hammocks are from these guys http://www.mosquitohammock.com/, not quite the same as DD but still a thai-style hammock which all look pretty similar.

    beech is there any possibility of another group buy on the stoves, as it's been 12 months since the last i'm sure there would be a lot of interest in another buy.

    Just to let everyone know I've received notification from woodland edge of the donation made to the Woodland Trust from the sale of the stoves.

    :D

    Nice one.. Wasn't the amount being donated going to be posted on here too? Just curious.. :D

    As an aside, I also might be interested in the GB on the stove, dependent on price (would expect it to include the legs option in the buy too..?).

    Looking back, yes it was. The amount was £50. I guess this works out to something like a £1-2 per stove, I don't know how many they've sold, but it seems a reasonable contribution.

    I wasn't sure if they'd already posted details as I've been busy out and about of late and may have missed their post.

    I'd be up for another group buy on these provided the price could be reduced. I've been looking for a more environmentally friendly, but convenient alternative to using gas cans/ fuel camping stoves on my long session fishing trips.

    Fires on the bankside are usually out, due to the scorching and mess left behind rather than the immediate fire risk, however as the firebox has legs I'm guessing that that is overcome. Looks like a well thought out bit of kit (wish I'd seen this before buying that Primus multifuel).

    Nice to see the evolution too, so a nod of acknowledgment to both Nimblewill and Scoops also.

    I'd put myself down for one if there's a group buy going

    A little OT, but I use a mini folding table from eurohike to raise my stove above ground level. it costs about &#163;10 and weighs very little.
    I use it regularly as it gives me a stable platform to cook on and leaves no scorch marks
