    SOLD: Gnome (alcohol) Stove

    I will be responding to PMs only.

    This is a stove that Gnome sent to me. It does work, but I'm not crazy about the design and I have to many stoves.

    Who ever is willing to pay shipping can have it.

    I have no idea how to figure out what shipping will be ahead of time (Can someone tell me how?)

    The shipping box (it's just a box that checks come in) with the stove in it weighs 2oz.
    Dimensions as follows:
    H 2"
    L 7"
    W 4"

    That is about the size of a USPS flat rate $4.95 box. 9x5x2.

    FYI... its $4.80 if you buy the postage online.
    I am not a gram weenie. , But Im starting to see the merits!!!

    You can also drop it in poly mailer and get by with first class postage as long as its not more than 13 ounces.

    this particular gnome stove aint very good. It will over heat in a heart beat. My advice is to put it in the stove museum as an experiment, I have made exp. # 85 now I believe and it works much better. sure was fun making those little puppies though! gnome

    you can ship something this size in an insulated envelope . I think the average postage was under $1.60.
    when it overheats (using to close a wind shield, or to tight,) it will vaporise the alk. and start to burn hot. not good!@#$%^^ lot of fun to make tho. my newer ones with the complete 5 + inch bottle are real nice and actually weigh not much more./gnome

    Mine overheated, not sure why, but the swelling gas blew a hole in the JB weld and started pumping out pressurized fuel. Still had a few minutes of fuel to burn off and had to cover the stove with a pan to extenguish. It became a fire breathing dragon, with unpredictable fire spitting from its nostrils.

    Still a super light stove,fun to play with. worth the cost of shipping.
