The Trangia is an alcohol burning brass 4oz. or so stove made in Germany and imported by MSR. It has no moving parts, a sealing, screw on cap and an adjustable simmer ring. Make your own pot stand out of 1/2" hardware cloth. It pretty much has to have a windscreen to work well. REI, among a lot of others carry it but it is a state secret. You have to ask for it by name. Guess they'd rather sell you one of those niffty $100 gas stoves than a $20 Trangia. Go figure....   ;o)
