This Project is the final evolution of an earlier campaign. A few years ago I successfully launched 'Microstove' a camping and hiking minimalist stove that fits in your wallet. it was the most compact stove available but wasn't the lightest. I have changed the design so it is easier to assemble and the material is now hard anodised aluminium. It weighs an incredible 9.4 grams or 0.3 oz making it the 'worlds lightest stove' It can use all solid fuel blocks and will even sit on a Trangia style meths burner as a pot trivet. For wind proofing just wrap tinfoil around base and ideally pot as well.
Risks and challenges
I have worked through this project once before with the older version that was made in stainless steel. The challenge is much the same but for the change in material. This was to gain the title 'worlds lightest stove' and came with an additional process of hard anodising. This strengthens the aluminium and gives it high wear resistance and stops it from self oxidising.
The finish is nice too!
