Re: Disecting The Thermos Stove G'day Agfadoc,
I see that you are creating a thermos stove but am unable to access the conversation.
I assume you are talking about its creation?
I recently created one myself which I can use with a gas stove, camp fire, metho stove and, I assume, Esbits.
I found that I had to drill holes around the top to allow the best airflow. It doesn't take long to heat the water, it stays hot for about four hours (at least). I carry it every day and use it while out hiking, for a warm brew when I get back from kayaking or making lunch (two minute noodles etc).
I am yet to use it while out hammocking but it fast becoming an important part of my bushcraft kit.
I haven't heard of anyone else doing this so I would love to hear your findings.
It appears you destroyed the bottom. I managed to salvage mine and use it store a few firestraws, a pepsi can stove and a few odds and ends.
Sorry to waffle on. I would love to hear your views.
