My Swiss volcano stove

Recommended Posts

Were good at ranting and rambling and tromping on some ones thread. Thats what we do.  :P

 

I have only used my Swedish stove once but if you can get your hands on one cheaper then $100 bucks you wont be sorry. 100 is way too much. Ill have to put up a picture of my kit.

Oh use denatured alcohol and not rubbing alcohol for fuel.

yup, i use slx from wal mart. burns clean and hot. you can use the red or yellow bottles of heet (for your cars gas system) to, and any liquer over a certain proof(aka flamible) i work at an alcohol plant so i wonder if they will let me bring home buckets of the stuff. you can use the rubbing alc. but it stinks to high heaven and leaves soot everywhere. but works in an emergancy.

I just love swiss gear. so neat and efficient. can you still use the unit if you run out (or worse case) spill the alcohol? I know you could just stick the cup in the coals of the camp fire but has anyone ever built a pillar fire? I know they showed it once on MvW but my father taught me the trick on a camping trip where you take four green sapling stakes and drive them into the ground close together to create legs and them criscross kindling all the way to the top, set the vessel of water on top and light it. works great for boiling about four cups of water. Showed that trick to my oldest son this past summer when we were making lunch in the field.

my wife isnt very outdoorsy but at least she is on board for the prepping and self reliance stuff.

 

~ You'd be hard-pressed to find an "outdoorsy" wife living where YOU live. I mean...  LOOK at your tent. What woman wants to go outside in three feet of snow, and pretend that she doesn't have a warm bed for a whole weekend... just for Fun?  :unsure:

 

That's a guy thing.

I forgot that for a 16 inch tall burn the stakes should be atleast 2 inches thick and green as can be or the legs burn through and dump boiling water everywhere. my father learned the trick from an old guy he worked with when he worked for the park service in the early 60's and he tried it with his combat helmet in nam. lol he even came up with a jet fuel stove when he worked in refueling but i don't think too many here have a ready supply JP4.
