Combination pot cosy and case from
3mm CCF and spinnaker fabric. I tried to keep it as simple as possible with no arrangement for using with handles deployed and just two Kam snaps on short lengths of webbing to close it. Much lighter than Reflectix at 31 grams. I know that Mr Whiteburn has one eerily similar at only 20 grams but my excuse is that I covered the CCF inside and out as mine was on the fragile side.
Mine is 'coated' inside & outside also BUT the fabric I used is probably lighter + the CCF is actually 2.5mm, also handle cut out would knock a few grams off.
My lid is quite a bit deeper with more overlap IIRC. Anyway, it's light enough that I'm happy with it. I think the thin CCF and classic Reflectix cosy shape work well and make a better solution compared to insulated pouches, zipped or with a drawstring.
Top job t is too, many thanks Dave. Top stitcher
Recessed lid for a Trangia 1l pot. 0.35 mm aluminium, 14.5 cm diameter, 17 grams. Definitely looks home-made but works a treat. I may cut a slot for a pot lifter but probably won't.
Made a stove pouch, canister pouch and a pot pouch out of tea towel for SnowPeaks Gigapower and Combo. Multi use to stop things rattling, as oven mitt(s) and wiping/cleaning. Unfortunately don't have a canister atm to display.
Prototype neck pouch for the Galaxy 5 phone, 10cm * 16.5cm, I tried a few designs (different fabrics,zipper & Velcro closures) this one seems to be the most functional/ practical, 12g.
I used some scrap cordura which is fairly stiff & inserted some 1cm wide plastic parcel banding at the top; phone seems easy enough to slip in or out. I plan a bright red or orange version once I've used a few times & ironed out any niggles; it should keep the phone warmer in winter than the trouser pocket.
should keep the phone
That’s very nice @Balagan. What did you do to edges exactly ? I cut lines and fold over and it’s very rough.
I bashed them with a ball peen hammer over a wooden form. Basically, you screw your slightly oversize lid over a wooden circle and tap the overlapping edge down with the hammer until it takes the form you want. In my case, I used a 3mm MDF offcut screwed to a piece of plank and rotated the lid. Once done, I flipped the lid and MDF over, pushed the second piece of wood against the edge and bashed it down again. I wasn't patient enough but the trick is to go slowly.
Hmmm ... maybe next year! Ball peen hammer...
The rivet looks substantially different....
Is it a rivet? I thought it was a screw uss fixing piece
Off to the west coast of Scotland bothying next week. I had some yarn left over from an Arran jumper so I've knocked out a Compo hat and some hand warmers.
