hello urban x,thanx for that managed a pic.this i made from a gas bottle,it all comes apart and goes into the red box you can see in the pic,it as a choke on the top of the flue and the ring on top is to stand the kettle on.i will post a few more pis when i have time,cheers
Thats just class ...
That's really nice, I like it.
Always preferred gas bottle stoves when they are laid down flat instead of upright and the spit looks great.
That's a work of art. you must be very pleased with it ) Well done.
i make these paper bricks and burn them in the (scorpion)stove.(just a name i gave it because of the shape)and if i need wood i have made a saw for that too[IMG][/IMG]the press i made for the bricks is a lot better than the small metal ones (blisters on hand type) and a lot less effort too.[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]
That is absolutely amazing! Well done and I really like the press too!

some really impressive DIY there, that stove looks fantastic. i presume that the top plate is detachable/interchangeable is it? ie one for the griddle one for the spit?
and i have to ask, why four bolts on the press when there's only two tabs on the tube?
Stunning stove - I'm really impressed - you could easily sell that!!! It is far superior to most that I've seen

hope this pic of the build shows you,this is the higher position to push out the brick.[IMG][/IMG]
That is an awesome stove, a work of art.
I did wonder at the thread title though.
"Spit"? He's used spit???
Doesn't he know that's gonny evaporate?

[IMG][/IMG]and this one i made for inside a gazebo i have altered the flue now and it has a flexible one that goes through a stainless plate in the gazebo roof.toasty for halloween partys etc
Top work there fella
when i dont want to cook on wood stoves i also have a few of these little stoves,this one i take with me in my camper for those night outside,runs on paraffin so smells a bit,so i made the tin box for it,notice how the folding legs on the stove fit between the pennys to stop it moving,the kettle, fuel ,stove and bit all fit neatly in the box.[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]
