nimblewill wood stove...
« on: February 08, 2013, 01:24:26 PM »
I bought this stove from a guy that did a batch run. They were cut out on a cnc machine. I traded mine for a bunch of books. I scanned the pieces and they print out at 100% full size. I'm not sure if the photo bucket links change them much but I think they should print fine.

I've read about a bunch of sources from old microwaves to computer cases. A dremel and a drill is all you need. no dremel? use tin snips.



one of these for the bottom and four of the other for the sides.

There's a template you can download from this page.

I was thinking of going to a machinist near my house and having him cut one out for me. I remember him being relatively cheap last time I had him make something for work.

SIXFOOTER did a run with stainless steel A little modded.  I use mine quite a bit.  That SS is forever in those stoves.  Here it is in a three walled config in the FL Keys distilling salt water from scrounged material.  Good design.

I loooove my lil sixfooter stove.. :)     The last time I used it , I played with kabobs on it.   Nummmy..  :)
 
And those with pie irons.. it lays nicely on it too, using the V's on the top edges.
 
I would how ever like to get a smaller one like the OP's above for another BOB pack. 
 
I have a metal two drawer file cabinet that the drawers bent on it.. can I use that metal do you think?

I think you should try them out WW.  Be a good project to keep you busy and warm.  It'll be lighter to carry than the SS.  Have you got a dremel tool?  If not, they do many things well.  Great tool.  But you can use tinsnips, a drill, and a file on that thin steel.  Aluminum is even easier and light.

Many thanks sixfooter. I traded mine but would buy another in a heart beat. That was an awesome thing you did for us.

So when's the next batch? Titanium this time? ;) LOL. >:D

Love my Nimblewill stove! Stole a neat trick I found on Youtube for heating/toasting poptart and such. Cut a piece of aluminum from a broiling pan and slide it under the bottom. In a few minutes you have a nice hot poptart or hot pocket! Going to try bannock next.



Under the firepan....

Sixfooter made stoves? Was I MIA or just clueless when that happened?

I have an Emberlit but I like how these Nimble thingers don't angle up, it's just a square box.

I made one a couple years ago, and a little leather pouch to carry it in.  I also added a piece of hardware cloth, to make a flatter surface on top to set a cup on... my canteen cup kept falling in.  It's a pretty permanent part of my dayhike kit.  Sometimes I sub it out with my MSR Pocket Rocket if it's going to be rainy and i'm feeling lazy.

Finally made one of these today out of an old cookie sheet. It's a little rough but not difficult to make so I might try again soon. Gave it a good bit of seasoning tonight. Had a little fire going for a couple hours, boiled some tea, etc. It burns well and held up well. I'll definitely take it with me next trip.

Thanks, wolfy!

I started using my dremel tool, which accounts for some of the rougher parts. But then I went and bought a new pair of tin snips (Wiss, USA made!) to replace my old, chipped ones. Those made short work of most of the cuts. I then used the dremel for sanding/detail work.

As smooth and unruffled as the cuts were, I guessed Dremel cutoff wheels ???     I've got a set of right, left and straight aviation-type snips.......maybe I'll sneak off with one of Heather's old cookie sheets. >:D

I just tried to make sure I was cutting toward the back of the snips so I wouldn't get those jagged cuts with them. Part of the reason the dremel-cut stuff turned out rough for me was because I didn't have the right kind of cut-off wheels initially. I grabbed some decent ones while at the hardware store, too. The snips were still the most expedient, either way. Good luck and don't get caught! >:D

I opened up the feed hole to be bigger with the dremel.  I also used a stone bur on the dremel to make little indents on top of the peaks.  Laying rod across there kept  fry pans on top and I could use a larger pan if I wanted too.  :)

Holy Cow I just had a thought..     I can use only three walls and hook them together for the Trangia stove inside.  I've been trying to find something as a wind break and a pot holde for that T stove.   :)     

Good job, diogenes. :)    Bring on the food!!  :)

And THANK YOU, Nature boy for that wonderful idea of making a tray to go under.. I'm sooo going to play with that idea. :)

A little afternoon snack using the nimblewill stove.


Warming tortillas on the lid.


Just got a USGI canteen cup. I need to find out where I can get one of those lids now. (I'm guessing they're aftermarket?)


Spanish rice w/chicken and tortillas. And a cup of tea. This little stove's pretty decent.

That cookie sheet seems to be holding up well. It's black but doesn't seem to be warping at all. Nice job on that.

It's got a small amount of warping going on, but nothing noticeable in use. I do want to make another where I can do a cleaner job of it. But yeah, so far this thing is holding up nicely. I'm pretty pleased with it. ;D

Good job on the stove.  I've been wanting to try, and test out one of those out for awhile. 

Just for my inner data geek I'd love to see a nimblewill vs a emberlite.  I know they both burn wood, cook, and boil.. but hey!

I just found this one the other day before Finn went missing. It's smaller but I like the design so I may try and scale it up somehow.

The nice thing is there are CAD files on the page, so if anyone has access to one of those waterjet cutters, you can just have it cut out.

There are a few places near me that do waterjet cutting. I can call around for quotes unless someone else knows of a good place.

Who's interested?

EDIT: Just so people know, this is the stove I'm considering since the CAD files are already provided.

Not sure. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know. Titanium would be cool, but I don't know how expensive it would be. Stainless would probably be fine too, I'd think.

Also, do people want the stand that's on the page, too?

FWIW.  I've had several designs and materials.  I'm eventually going to own a titanium one like Sixfooter had cut out.  Because it's versatile, stable, and light (in Ti).  But I'ld pop for a different custom Ti folder design to check it out.

I think the stand is cool, but all you really need is a couple shepherds hook tent stakes to X on there OR a small square of hardware cloth (grill!).

Steel will be loads cheaper, but much heavier. The similar Emberlit is 11 or 12 ounces for steel and half the weight for titanium.

I agree about the stands. They're not necessary. Let's keep this as uncomplicated as possible.

I've sent an email for a quote at one place and I know where I can source some SS at least. Not sure about titanium yet. On the guy's page he says he uses steel at 1mm thick. That would be somewhere between 19-20 ga. in ungalvanized stainless. Seem thick enough everyone?

Hope we get some more takers. I'd assume the more stoves we get made the cheaper it'll be for each individual.

I don't know much about stove sizes, but cheap, strong, and able to fit a trangia in it seems good to me.   

Yeah, I thought the trangia thing would be a plus for a few people.

Alright so, so far we have myself, JTD, Rog, Max and Nature Boy. That makes 5. At least 5 more would be good, I would think. I'll let everyone know once quotes start coming in.

Try to get a quote on Ti.  I know it's a lot more, but as soon as I packed a SS stove out I knew I wanted Ti for backpacking.  The design is bomber.

How thick you think the TI would need to be?

I'm in on this too. I agree the more people the cheaper so lets spread the word. Titanium would be awesome, But thin stainless is fine. Sixfooter what was your stoves thickness? It was very sturdy and I think a little thinner might be okay.

If we can put this together at a reasonable price..count me in. I love mine but it is a little heavy.
