I'm sure I could its that I saw your pic with the plug in place and was wondering. I've never forgotten to remove the cork . . . . Yet
Thanks, for the info on the LMF. I find myself frequently looking between a few mess kits, but haven’t found one I really want, so I have an insulated steel mug, a cheap collapsable silicone bowl (originally bought in multi-pack to keep in car for water for dog, but decide the extra works for my needs) and a couple different sporks. For salt and pepper, I have a small Coughlans one that works well as long as you unscrew at the correct spot, otherwise you spill it all.Since getting the stove, I find myself noticing twigs just laying on the ground. I find thumb size diameter and smaller work best for mine, but they are plentiful and free.
I found this intersting: the fella tests a few different stand for use with the Trangia spirit burner. If you are too busy to watch the video, the Firebox Nano does very well and gets a recommendation, in part for its versatility.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O0-xQNgoTe8&list=TLPQMzAwNTIwMjG0Mo8oYwTdLg&index=2
I have the Esbit tray and the flame guard (slide on top side to help protect pot/cup handles. They both fit in the x-case but it doesn’t snap shut as well with the carbon cloth.The solid fuel tray just sits on top of the pins like you mention and is solid. It works pretty well, but I’m not sure how much better it would be than your set-up.I’ll get a picture shortly.The cooling off quick is something I really like too.
More testing and training today ( making a coffee was the ever-handy excuse.... ).I needed a coffee.....I didn't time this trial...soooo......more testing is indicated......(Image removed from quote.)
Given how little I use the multitude of stoves I already have I really don't need another one...but I'm still very tempted.
Must be hard to do all this testing Nix, and probably not fun at all
