Jim Woods' Firebucket
Jim also has another innovation I made but didn't take. He conceived his Firebucket as a better windscreen for reasons enumerated on this page.
|Jim Woods' Firebucket windscreen/pot stand|
For my bucket,
1. I left out the bolts and wingnuts (which I'd surely lose) in favor of a fold on each edge of the joint, that work like the caldera cone's joint.
2. I used an inverted empty 5.5 oz aluminum cat food can as the platform for my super cat stove. I can easily light my Supercat without the Firebucket getting in the way. I use another 5.5 oz can as a snuffer.
3. I cut the flashing so my saucepan would sit on the supercat on a 5.5 oz can. The Firebucket's diameter was just small enough to support the saucepan (with 3 cups of water) without the supercat underneath I could use a penny stove on the ground below the stove. I can put out the flame on either stove by dropping an inverted spare 5.5 oz can over its top.
4. The Firebucket weight: 51 grams = 1 3/4 oz

|The saucepan with nothing underneath, the top of the Firebucket holds the rim of the saucepan on the right. I wanted it to fit a little tighter than it does for just a smidgen more confidence that the lip on the right won't slip.|
