For all you Gaz globetrotter fans The background to this is that I’m trying to put together the hiking equipment tha I had, back in the late 1970’s early 1980’s. After about a 40 year odyssey, I’ve managed to find just about everything... A Backpacker Kestrel III, A backpacker Elephant, Backpacker Benerdorm sleeping bag, and the Gaz Globetrotter cooker... But, there is a niggle in the wood there because as we know, the 90g canister for the globetrotter has become obsolete. So, in my search, I’ve managed to actually find two of them, one very scrappy, and the other almost brand new. So much so, The 90g canister that’s clipped into the burner, and still has gas in it, is probably the one and only canister that’s been on the burner. After much deliberation about cutting the clips and welding in an extension, or bending up new clips I decided to try and bend up prototype clips just for a look see... So, The original clips are made from 4mm diameter wire, but I don’t know if it’s a higher carbon metal, or if it was hot bended, or both, so for a prototype, I simply used 5mm galvanised fencing wire.... And really, A vice, a hacksaw, a file and a ruler where all the tools I used.... It’s so simple it’s stupid Once completed, with great trepidation I clamped in the bigger canister, and with thoughts of gas and canister exploding in a thousand directions I screwed down the burner & punctured the canister..... And the prototype worked perfectly, so much so, I’m not going to make another! So for all you globetrotter fanatics, here is s simple a way of modifying the canister clips, to suit the 190g canister, without having to ditch the burner. Personally I so much prefer the globetrotter’s burner because it has a little windshield round the burner, whereas the other types don’t, or the windscreen is too far from the burner. Ok, so that’s part 1 of the whole modification. Now because it’s taller than the original, the two billies won’t close over each other, so I’ll be fashioning a tube out of a thin piece of aluminium sheet that will go round the canister & burner but inside the billies so the the billies will be like caps over each end of the tube.... Here are some pics, I’ll do comments on each of the pics, just click on them.
