I tried mine last weekend with wood pellet cat litter...anyone used wood-pellets in these things?
That is[/B] very impressive. Could you just clarify for us which stove that is?I tried mine last weekend with wood pellet cat litter...
I filled it to just below the top air holes, wedged a fire lighter in the centre (on top, but pushed in a little way) and lit it. It took about 10 minutes for the gas jets to start, but once started it maintained the jets for just over an hour and a half, with a usuable simmer heat after that of just over half an hour.
Yes.Slightly off subject do you think the cat wood pellets would work in a honey stove?
Yes - I got it on ebay. And it burnt remarkably well on kitty-litter - actually nearly twice as long as the wild-gas stove which itself managed an hour on one load. So it gets a thumbs-up from me. It is a classic "tin-can" stove, so won't last as long as the stainless steel wild-gas stoves, but for the price its a fun intro to woodgas stoves.Is that an ebay special woodgas stove in that pic (far left) -- are they any good?
I am carrying the stove around with me at the moment as back up to my evernew stove. I haven't used it yet and the clips where the stove is supposed to go have broken off. I am very disappointed with that and now I'm going to have to find a way to fix them back on.
The thing is I don't know if it's faulty of if that's just the way it was made. I mean those clips were not welded on. I'm in France at the moment so can't really do anything right now. I don't have the evernew woodstove just the meths burner and the trivet. I was not convinced by their woodstove so didn't buy. But the meths burner and trivet is absolute superb bit of kit which I recommend to anyone.I have had no problem with mine and I have taken it everywhere, you should contact the guys at wildwood gas and speak to them . I am sure if one of there products was faulty they would want to know and want to sort you out .
By the way I also used to use the evernew stove and I recon the wildwood gas stove is a much better user , I sold my evernew woodstove and kept the meths burner which I sometimes use inside the wildwoodgas stove if I am somewhere that I is not appropriate to light a woodstove up with wood .
By looking at the packaging of Wild Stove, it looks to me like it is made in China and a Wild Stoves sticker is added on it in UK.After deliberating for a while on getting a woodgas stove, I decided to go with the UK company Wild Stoves and got their small backpacking woodgas stove.
