beta testers wanted
Now that the Clone script is being hosted by ZenStoves I'm working on a script for a simple cylindrical windshield/pan support. I've written the script, but I'm aware that there are a few potential issues, and it would be useful to have a few people try it out to find the problems with different pan and burner settings.
So, if any of OM's 'stovies' would like to help, drop me a PM.
Here's an example with a flissure split, and slot/tab vertical joint:

I'd be happy to give it a go CP, but only on paper, as i have no ali left.
Any good. ?

Come on guys, especially people who've taken advantage of CP's cone script, time to give something back, no. ?
Well, maybe I should take away the 'beta' rating, and just launch the thing as a released version... I think it's pretty much debugged now.
It offers three vertical joint types:
my usual slot/tablap fell'grip fell'
It has the usual programmability for pan, burner, holes, etc.
It will create a two-part shield that fits in the pan it supports, using a flissure joint as per the clone.
It ought to cope with most pan/burner combinations, as the logic to place the pan support stakes seems to work okay (it will put them in lower or upper half, as needed).
It will detect if the shield parts won't fit into the pan, and adjust the template accordingly, and will warn you if the stake placement is impossible.
A slight anomoly when working with the litech trek kettle.
Unless it's my input. ?
All seems fine on assembly, though i trimmed the upper ends just a tad.
Seems itdoesn't like my definitions for the Heiney keg, throwing up a 4 page template.
I would reply, but i usually just cut things to fit.
What is a script?

What about using the pegs as the closure (through a large overlap)?

Referring to "the script" Mike, it's the post script software used to generate the template.
You never made a cone. ?
What is software?
Yip, i've made many a cone.
The Litech kettle issue looks like it's due to the handle opening being very wide (in this case, much wider than needed, but the point is valid more generally). The script draws overlapping bits in the handle opening, each as wide as the handle opening. I haven't drawn a line at the bottom of the upper section. Should be easy to fix.
I probably need to think about flissure joints for the lap fell vertical joint, combined with a wide handle opening; the overlap is likely to hit the flissure joint, which would cause problems. The alternative to the simple 'full handle width' overlap tab is perhaps half the opening plus a bit, since we certainly don't need the full width overlap; there's an assumption of trimming, as per the clone script.
The Heiney keg one is odd; can you send me the script. Looks the the handle opening is tiny. Try settign a huge media size in GSView, which will show the entire template on one page (but you won't be able to print it that size, obviously...).
The clone script is easier to paste together, becuase the curved edges make alignment position pretty obvious. I'd forgotten that rectilinear shapes won't have this property, and I may need to add some other marks to show paste-up points.
> What about using the pegs as the closure (through a large overlap)?
I'd thought of using the stakes to lock the shield together (even if a slot & tab joint is used). I may add it as an option.
As per the Clone script, the cylindrical script is now hosted on ZenStoves.
I've just sent an updated version which I'm sure Zen will put up at some time; it allows single-piece of flissure versions to be built, and tidies up some logic errors.
Although I did make a clone from CP's script, the pack stowage even with a caddy does not suit me. I did get tangled upmaking the caldera flissure mainly because I was not accurate enough with the cutting and measuring.
In working on the Caldera after testing I did realise that although it is still the best for saving on fuel the differences were minimal and not worth a lot more work especially with the metal not easy to source.
I had previously made a flissure cylindrical windscreen for my Bushcookers alcohol stove set up, this does not use tags but a few simple cuts with hole at the end opposite each other -to both top and bottom pieces to link them together. I have also used document pins (paper holders)as pegs to hold the two halves together. Paper holders these are little brass pins from stationers -I have made myself similar pins but out of stronger metal)
The advantage with the cylindrical flissure is that it can fit in to my MSR Titan kettle.
Cheers Captain - might give one a go for using with remote gas stove (using US flashing -which can stand the heat)

[i]My [/i]flissure Caldera Clone fits in the MSR Titan Kettle easily enough (Just saying in case anyone should get the wrong idea that Flissure Clones don't fit inside the pan - that's the point of the Flissure Cone Clone)
