This is my little outdoor stove. I would use it more often except the wind is bothersome with the heat. Same too when I use the Dutch Oven. I have a little windscreen for backpacking I use sometimes. I was going to set it up for a photo but you think I could find it? Grrr... Anyway, I saw on a video a guy set up a large three panel wind shield for his stove and he got it right here in Quartzsite...somewhere, he didn't say where. I searched the vendors here. Nothing. I got online and none could be had. What to do? Well, I'll just make my own! I saw some online that were similar for around $30 but they were multi-fold up panels. I wanted a more ridged three panel arrangement. I planned to go to the hardware store and see if they had some aluminum around 18x12 which would fit the table nicely.
One day I was walking through a vendor's tent that sells mostly kitchen and cooking items. I saw this stack of cookie sheets. Hmm...that just might work. They were priced $4 each. I asked the guy if he'd take $10 for three. "Sure. I was watching you over there. Figured you were coming up with some use for them besides cooking cookies." I told him what my idea was. Hey, its fun to haggle.
Back at camp I learned why there was a stack of them and only $4 each. You need a blow torch to remove those stickers. Not kidding. I soaked them in water, gasoline, carburetor cleaner, some cleaning stuff I have that will remove everything imaginable. The stickers are still stuck on there. And I thought cutting through that shackle on the lock was hard!
I may get some WD-40 or just maybe forget it. They will still deflect wind with stickers left on.
I can just imagine all the pissed off housewives sending e-mails to the EKCO company.
Yes, this will work out nicely.
