    Only 3 oz?

    OH! Biggest problem solved... your stovejack doesn't have one of those heavy rubber rings in the center. If that part's not needed, I can move ahead with my prototype.

    Have you camped in heavy rain w/ this stovejack in place? was there any water running down the stovepipe (when stove is not hot, of course!)?

    I'm thinking I can make a 18" x 18" stovejack come in around 1.5 oz. Good to 700F, and less than $10.

    We'll see.

    My silnylon is coming in sometime late this week or early next. We'll see how long it takes to make the UQ, TQ, tarp-tent w/ stovejack, etc. etc.


    Perhaps I'll have a few reports to file. I'll need a photographer!

    If the stove pipe is in place while raining, yes, rain will come in. But if its warm enough for rain, don't really need a stove in place.
    Good luck and please becareful. remember, once you get the stove fired up good, damper it down to lower the temp on the stove.
    my stovejack is 13"x13", so an 18x18 will weigh more.

    it'll be made from a different material, so hopefully LESS.

    I think most stovejacks aren't engineered with weight as a factor -- not even an afterthought.

    The heaviest thing on a "standard" jack would be the large rubber grommet/seal in the center. If you've had luck w/o the seal, all the better!

    Thanks for the info, smokehouse.
