The numbers ...


500ml (2cups) of cold tap water
30ml (1oz) meths


Priming took almost 1 minute, I put this down to the stove and fuel being sat in a cool cellar all day. Once the stove had bloomed I put the pot on to boil.


Boil time for 500ml was just shy of 7 minutes, once the pot had boiled I removed the lid and left it to boil until the fuel ran out, which was at 15 and a half minutes.

Just ran the same experiment, same numbers. Both tests took place in a volcano stove. Running on "bio ethanol"

1st stove, monkeyboy clone with carbon felt in shoe polish tin.
Boil at 5.30
Rolling boil at 6.20

2nd stove. Tatonka from bloom.
Boil at 7:50
Rolling boil at 8.40

No idea about efficiency but both have plenty of fuel left.

Reyt Shewpot , it's like this.......
I've had a few scoops , a few drams.......just watched outlaw Jose Wales........
So I log on , and tune in to Shewie TV .......
I'm now in the mire.......swmbo just woke up ......probably suspecting I was watching adult material. After showing her it wasn't a 60's porn flick and in fact the dodgy soundtrack was coming from a Bushcraft meths stove vid, by your good self.
She stated that I've already got a shewpot.....why am I watching this at 2am ?

I had to be honest and told her.....aye but the one he sent me is Shyte ....but this one is mint . Then she says .....don't even think abaht it . ......I have an I want one .....(she's gone to bed nah ....just Mark it gio an I will send you a scoop in the post 😉

Re vid......bang on.....loved the trouts eye , sound track an the subtitles ......well put together....

Ps.....my commission rates these days have gone up......95% of all sales or maybe 50% off asking price .

All in all.....good do :thumbup:
Enjoyed that......I've even been distracted from the Sweeny while I've typed this .....

Cracking tutorial Rich. :)

You've reminded me I've got a Febreeze can and a Lynx can put aside for these. It'll be good to find out how these compare to the Cat stove I usually reach for.

I'm seriously impressed with that, from construction to the burn and burn time, thanks for doing the boil time, it's just given me the kick up the jacksy to try again.

I'll let you know how that goes :)

Thanks again.

Yeah let me know how it turns out


Looking forward to giving one a go :)

Just packed it up for a run to the PO in the morning :)


Thanks for the tutorial, well put together.

Cheers Rob, it's a fun little project


Nice work Rich, the Shewbox is an awesome little stove! Your video is flatteringly Tetkoba-esque (http://www.youtube.com/user/tetkoba/videos) but with a Harry Potter dungeon feel. :cool: I like your soundtrack, it has that O'jays funk thing going on (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXE_n2q08Yw). Well done, you have inspired me to possibly attempt to make a Shewbox stove! :You_Rock_

Rich I'm lovin the smooth music man. I to was reminded of 70's porn. Must be an age thing I guess:cool::cool::cool:.

Si


Gotta love the funk :dancer:
