So, pickup up this today:


Ammo-Can-Stove-1.jpg

Ammo Box converted into a wood-burning stove.


Ammo-Can-Stove-2.jpg

8.5" tall, 7" wide, and 12" long. Built in spark-arrestor. 3" outlet. Made for a 8-12 person Tipi or small yurt/hut; I'm gonna mount it in the back of the Hilux and pipe it straight through the topper...More pictures of it installed to come...

Actually I am far more jealous of your Hilux.  Cybele's lion-drawn chariot has nothing on such a machine.  

Stove looks cool too though.

Cool! I wish you would cross post it to Classic Camp Stoves. The stovies over there would get a real kick out of it. Especially once you have your installation photos.

Doesn't leave much room for other stuff in your pack does it? :)

I had a friend back in Jackson, Wyoming years ago who built a tiny wood stove like this and installed it in the bed of his pickup.  The chimney went up and through the top of the camper shell.  The smallest fire, using basically kindling, would really heat up the camper!

@ Ghost: Thanks for that...she needs a lot more work though...

@ Gonzan, Trout: I sniped the last available one off ebay from the guy, but he runs the following website: ammocanstove.com

@ Gary: Hehe...yeah, it likely weighs some ten pounds, but I could strap it to the outside of my pack and hump it like that if necessary. If I do plan on taking it out of the truck it'll be to put into a Tipi, and I can't imagine I'll be slogging that load very far...

@ Jim Doss: That's exactly what I plan to do.

Thanks for the info. Looks like a car camper device and you don't leave a fire ring.

That volvo looks like a Red Green project.  But then again it would need more duct tape to qualify for that.

I plan to build a hard top for one of my M101 trailers and install one of these

stoves in it.  Hope to start on it this spring.  I plan to dampen outside air into the combustion chamber.

I own the company that makes the stove pillothread posted, not sure if I can give the name on this sight so will not post.

TWA,

Welcome to Trailspace. You are welcome to mention the name of your stove, at least as it is listed on the Website that Pillow mentioned.

The only requirements are that you list your affiliations to outdoor companies (including your own) in you profile and in any pertinent post. Of course, commercial postings are not allowed, but answering questions and participating in the forums as a general member is great.

Thanks,  Great site. 

 I plan to mount the stove on the wheel well and rig a valve to let combustion air in from outside.  This is my soft top I have a M101A2 for the hard top build.

Welcome, TWA! The stove came in yesterday...it really is a well-crafted item. I'm about to go "break it in" later on tonight.

Glad you found the site. Based on the interest in this thread, I was about to contact you and suggest that you might want to make yourself known here.

Love the interior shot of your soft-top M101...I wish I had that much room in the back of my 'Yota...
