I spoke to Bob later that day due to an error with my order and i found out that i was now the owner of the very last stove in this batch. Phew. And really pleased that i got my order in and processed seconds before BPL closed for a holiday.
Photo courtesy of BPL UKThe stove arrived and it’s a fine, packs very neatly away, well designed and manufactured bit of kit. It’s multi fuel means that you can put one of the old Trangia burners in place or better still the Evernew Titanium burner if you have one. I don’t. Well not at this moment in time anyway.
You can use wood and also hexamine tablets.
The White box stove can also be used.
I don’t think gas is involved yet but that could be an upcoming project for me.
If you click on the link to blogpackinglight on line one, Robin has put together a very nice video of the separate parts and how they fit nicely together. It’s far better than i could put together so just nip over there and have a look.
Total weight :- Stove 56gr on my scales.
Retaining tin:- 54gr on my scales. This will soon be replaced by something weighing around 5 gr and made from Tyvek.
I did a bit of a test run today.
The Trangia burner sits well in both slots provided and as the info says the top slots give you the best burn. It boiled 400 ml of water in 5 minutes 40 seconds so no complaints .
