    It has been so long since I have had a FF stove, I cannot remember when I got it. But it is still going strong, after all these years and many many trips. A proven winner Dan!

    Do you think I should eliminate the small finger handle on the side the ring, is it useful?

    Zelph, Thank you, for the great stuff you sent me!

    Looking over my treasure trove of alcohol stoves, accessories and Spark-Lite I feel I have my kit together to get on the trails.

    Now that Glacier National Park is open year 'round I think I will do a little hiking on snow, around Upper Lake St. Mary. I can try these alcohol stoves in the snow.

    I have my Companion Stove but I want to see how well the others hold up. Maybe a new way to "simmer" if I can insulate the cookware.

    I don't know how I forgot to order the Fancee Feest simner ring. Have you sorted out, handle or no handle?

    Next batch of simmers I'll eliminate the handle.

    Glad you got the goodies and will be able to get back on the trails.....stay warm!

    Zelph, the Fancee Feest isn't the only proven excellent design you have.

    Everything fits inside of the plastic carry container which is my bowl to hold the freezer bag and the other half is my drinking cup. The burner holds 4.5oz of fuel. On one load of fuel I can boil 14 cups of water. 4 cups three times and 2 cups one time.

    Here is a photo my setup:

    Boiling all that water, with the "simmer" small diameter for the flame?

    What diameter that stove?

    The diameter of the opening is the same as the "Modified StarLyte. It works well in the confined space of the cone, no over heating. Takes 19-20 min to boil 4 cups of water. works out well, 2 cups for my Ramen noodles and 2 cups to drink.

    Read this thread for easy instructions on how to build the Fancee Feest stove.

    Watch Shugs video on how to use one:

    Trial 6: 1/4" gap, shorter wick
    Water: 1 cup, 79 deg F
    Fuel: 15mL 91% isopropyl
    Boil Time: 8:30
    Burn Time: 9:30
    Sooty after 7 minutes

    Start pic:


    Middle Pic (~4:30 in):


    End Pic:



    Conclusions:
    It seems that the length of the wick has a greater effect than the gap between the outer and inner cans does. It also seems inevitable that the flame becomes sooty when most of the fuel is gone. I'll have to test my smaller-gap version with a longer wick. When using on the trail, I should burn a little extra fuel so that I can boil my water and remove the pot before the flame gets sooty.
    You're coming along just fine. It's a fun learning process.

    The Fancee Feest stove might work ok with Iso91. I've been inspired by you to try using it as a fuel for the Fancee Feest. I'll give it a shot today and report back tomorrow. It's all in the name of Stove Science :-)

    Just recently we saw the video made by Hiram Cook where he used the Venom Super Stove and Iso91 as fuel. So I've gotten a renewed interest in doing some experimenting with Iso.

    Ok, I tried Iso91 using the Fancee Feest under a Foster can and it worked really well. A video will have to be made tomorrow to show the flame pattern. we ventured, we gained.

    Ok, here is the video showing how nicely the Fancee Feest burns Iso91 alcohol. It's a long video, no editing. No soot deposit on the bottom of the pot.
