    The German site has lots of interesting stuff. 

    I came across this site in USA that sells stuff for off-grid living.

    Yes, that modkit to make a primus burn alcohol made me too curious. Ethanol has a lot lower boil temperature than kerosene, so maybe it is some sort of flame damper of shield, which limits the heating of the burner? Or maybe it simply is a jet with a smaller (or bigger?) hole? Quite confusing this, since a volume of alcohol only produces about half the energy of what kerosene does.

    That's very interesting.  I see it fits on No 1, but couldn't work out what exactly it is.  At EUR 8.20 it seems like a wonderfully cheap way to convert from kero to alcohol!  I wonder how it works?

    A quick way of seeing all the text is to click on "quote", as if you were going to reply to the overwide post.  All the text is neatly laid out in the editing window, and you can then click "cancel" if you do not want to reply.

    Thanks, Roy, that was smart!

    When I see these wide, unreadable  postings, I copy and paste them into my Word-program, where it all become visible. Now I have put a few SHIFt+Return on that long link adress, so hopefully it gets readable here.

    All,

    I contacted James Baldwin who used to convert a kerosene stove to a gimbaled version.

    Attached is a link to what he considers the best kerosene stove available.

    This is the best kerosene stove available if you simply 'hot up' food or are deaf.  It's a 'roarer burner': immensely simple, will burn really poor kerosene and truly lives up to its name.  I cooked on one every day for about 2 years.  It did not add to the pleasure of cooking.
