Update: work in progress on my new hobo stove, got it all up and running, boiled the water in around 5 mins or so.
Just need to acquire a 10cm billy to fit it

Hi, my most recent project has been my hobo stove :) it all packs down into the ikea drainer, so is very easy to carry. Sorry for the picture quality I couldn't find the camera so had to use my phone.

here it is all packed up in its bag

[/URL][/IMG]

then out of the bag, the small bag contains the two pot supports and two pegs for pegging it down on uneven ground, the strap is to stop the lid rattling off and everything falling out



the pot is just a 10cm zebra billy with modified handle, as I couldn't find anything to crimp the loops in I used electrical 'chockblocks' with the outer plastic coating removed



here you can see the pot with the lid off and internal dish removed, the plastic bag is teabags and sits inside the dish and the straws are powdered espresso coffee (red) and sugar (green/yellow) enough for four cups of coffee



here is the rest of the stuff that sits under the dish, theres about five maya sticks there cut up into little bits to fit under the dish, some matches and my penny stove I made, which is really quick to use with the hobo stove, and a lot cheaper than a trangia burner!!





and finally here's everything altogether



any feedback/suggestions would be much appreciated

cheers,
Thomas

How well does it burn with the penny stove
Using the penny stove only increases the boil time of 750ml of water by about a minute, the pot is at just the perfect height to catch the top of the flame.

I have since added a hinge tripod to the base, 'borrowed' from Biker's hobo stove.

Stanley cook set, the lid for it fits great on gsi cup which stacks ynderneath pot. Its from amazon.

Stanley 0.71Litre Adventure Camp Cook Set, Green/ Silver Stanley http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007HMVW2E/ref=cm_sw_r_udp_awd_I4Uetb07190BN


I've grinded down the top rim on here and now it fits into my 10x4.



Nice little set up you have there. I have the Stanley Adventure Cook set and I've very impressed. With just one of the green cups insitue, I can fit a small primus gas stove, plus an inverted MSR cas cartridge and still get the lid on..I use it for hiking ect..

May i ask where you got that particular cutlery strainer from as it looks made for the GSI/ Stanely? Also which 10/x4 pouch is that?

Regards,

Peter
