I'm putting together another "idea" I had ... I'll post pictures as it comes together.
Other than Dusty and Deb, who'll be the first to guess what it is I'm fabricating this time?

First picture ...

Could be most anything, George. :rolleyes:

Does it have to do with camping? ... a trailer? ...or your bike? :confused:

A hint or two might help out! :well

Other than the "hint" in the thread title, and the fact that it's listed under "cooking tips & tricks" the hints will come by way of pictures, Ken ...

One picture at a time ... ;)

Cookie sheet for Colman oven. If not I am thinking of that. Can't be to big, or heat won't go around.

I was also thinking of a way to retain the heat in the Colman oven. Any thoughts on that George? I was thinking top and sides insulation, not big and balky. Just something to slow the heat loss.

I just thought save a little Gas, or achieve higher temp, and help on a windy or cold day. Not trying to change things, just enhance.

Looks like the makings of one of those burn anything twig stoves.
Four sides and a grate.

Or could just be a fold flat wind deflector for a single burner.

They are sheets of paper and he's making origami cranes!
Or, they are heavy sheets of steel and he'll use them as bed warmers. Heat them up next to the campfire and slide them into his sleeping bag 20 minutes before turn in time.

OK you're going to fold 2 sides down with 1 inch bends to act as lifts. Then stack them inside your Coleman oven so you can do 10-20 cookies at a time. Call it your Pent-a-decker cookie creation!

Alright one last attempt here, They are going to be Very Large wind chimes to keep attach to a trailer. Then if the trailer tips, the chimes will sound an alert for a few good-fellows to come to the rescue!
Yeah Yeah that's it, chimes! :lol2:lol2:lol2

Scott

Hint # 3

OK, if I can image it correctly it has 4 walls approximately 8hx12w, all 4 wall/side panels will be hinged together using 3 sections of piano hinge. The last section of hinge will be used to attache the top/5th piece of 8x12 steel. The corner where the 4 sides come together will be un-hinged and able to be opened or closed depending on the wind. This will be a sort of heat shield for heating pots of soup, coffee or placing the D.O. on.
Naaaaa with the sides and top solid all it would do would be to capture any heat from inside and slow the release of it. :confused:
OK that's it, George is going to place a candle under it and use it as a radiant heat source in his camper!
Naaaaa that idea sucks too! :o

I would guess a "solar oven" P^

That material looks like the stuff that was used in my high school welding shop to separate the welding booths.

I would guess like Scott said that it is essentially a fold up box. And I think it is an oven, and not solar powered, but rather a box that gets set over top of a camp stove. Just lift up the hinged top or pull open one of the sides of the box to check on baking progress. That could work I think.

Well I have been looking for a way to start the charcoal for my dutch oven tht would fold down and store in the DO when traveling.....and after getting the coals started it would become a wind block to help keep the temps constant with the DO

help me make one;)

G wizz
01-13-2014, 05:55 PM
Well folks .. We have a near winner here ... :hatw1:
Hogasm is on the right track, except what I'm fabricating isn't being made small enough to fit inside my 10 inch Aluminum DO. It wouldn't work too well for a wind break either, I don't think.

Follow along to see how my folding Charcoal Chimney takes shape ... ;)

Yes it would, but one of those isn't in everyone's tool box, not to mention being much pricier than a 1 inch hole saw that can be bought at most any hardware store for a couple of bucks ... P^

Ah we are getting closer on dimensions

4 1" holes across the bottom so approx 6.5" to 7" square

It is looking goodP^

I imagine at that size, (6 x 6 x 12") it would hold more than enough briquettes for your 10" DO. (?)
