Fire and Woodstoves / Re: Reskinning a stove
« on: September 04, 2019, 07:00:09 pm »
Hey Fellas,

thanks kindly for the replies.

stove is a small Kni-Co. pretty sure they use 22 gauge steel.
could learn to live with it as its not a huge deal, but
might be nice tho to have a level top again.
part of me is reluctant to alter the original

not sure id want to cut any holes as i use a few different pots and do like having a tight unit.
i know some folks have their stoves set-up like that and it works great for them.
seems logical tho in reducing weight and increasing heat transfer.:)

any recommendations for gauge of steel?
iam not overly concerned about weight as i
dont haul that far anymore.

Fire and Woodstoves / Reskinning a stove
« on: September 01, 2019, 07:32:33 am »
Hello friends,

ive been considering re-skinning my stove top
as its become quite warped. while this does add 'character' lol
it also increases cooking times. little concerned tho
cutting out a section and then rewelding a new piece in.
will this compromise the integrity of stove?

also wondering if going heavier gauge might be of benefit?

any thoughts welcome

re: angling... it is possible the angler(s) were FN
as i believe they are permitted to fish year round.

ive never owned a sled (maybe someday) but a friend of mine in the past has
flown me into the bush on a few occasions

while its true sleds can take you in further/ faster and
generally more remote, doesn't always equate to being less people

due to geography some lakes are completely inaccessible to atvs,sleds.
(some are sweet spec lakes :P)

thats a good point Hutch on the power jack as well as other
extrication tools. cant recall what my buddy used to bring but looked
more like a winch/ratchet thing.

the one year he got the steel tool cage  pinched between some narrowly positioned trees,
fortunately he was able to free himself and return home safely. could have been a serious situation.
this was after dropping me off and i had no idea it had even happened.

ill also just use the tent (8x8 snowtrekker)
closing off the vents,stoking the stove. ive had
temps at shoulder height while sitting down of 112+f.
i fill all my pots,skillet with water and add
balsam,cedar.

not as humid as a true sauna but still good.

good to hear it worked for ya.

i also only use small minnows (targeting pan fry specs) which i think
helps w longevity, seein as the thermos is small.
typically take 3/4 dozen per trip.

btw
how was the fishing?
please share any pics you might have.

Fire and Woodstoves / Re: Tired of my stove reflectors
« on: December 19, 2016, 10:16:23 pm »
i use the stove reflector which Bioguide has shown
as well as two others (one at the back and one that gets
used as a table) a portion of this one is placed on an angle
to reflect heat upwards.
ive found large diameter and long skids work well
i also drive in long stakes on an angle on each side of the supporting skids
sorry not the best pics

Tents and Shelters / Re: vinyl door tent mod
« on: December 08, 2016, 08:24:53 am »
Zipper was from a place called Sportech Sails
http://www.sportechsails.com/
(thank you Z)

one i have has large teeth which work well under harsh conditions.
i decided to leave a portion of vinyl which overlaps the zipper
to further help protect from elements.


just wish i had a more clear vinyl,
like the one theDuck made awhile back
you can really see the difference in clarity.
http://www.wintertrekking.com/community/index.php?topic=3288.0

but for 9.99 at Walmart for the vinyl i cant complain.
overall iam very happy with the mod and it makes a big difference

i bought my velcro at Walmart
came in a box of 1’’x 4’ strips. i used the adhesive stuff.
fabric shops and places like Home Depot should
also carry.

My friend Zelandonii supplied the zipper so
hopefully he can chime in. so far its held up well
