    Recently I got this stove in ebay, iron box corrosion is more serious, I cleaned it, I do not intend to re-paint, let it keep the original look like it!

    I made some optimizations about its carrying weight
    Can carry an additional 125ml fuel bottle and windshield

    A thorough set of photographs.

    Good to see the stove's no 'shelf queen' but will be used and the adaptation of the lightweight pot rest and windshield looks workable. You use the original case for display?

    I see that with your lightweight setup you've discarded the heatshield and use a fold in the foil. Fuel tank doesn't get too hot?

    Nice work!

    Good work @anfeng

    I like specially the 7th image with all that shining brass, even the lighter! Shows a lot of care.

    Congratulations.

    Hello John!
    I'm glad you visited my work and raised your question. The height of the aluminum foil windshield can be insulated from the heat to the tank.
