Reinventing the Wheel

Hey Everyone,

I just watched a video from Tinny on Mini Bull Design. It seems that the pot that I, as well as many others have been using, is even better than we thought. Tinny has been creating many different pot designs over the past year. He's made everything from pro 20oz wide mouth pots to little QMH 8oz pots. He recently built a new wide mouth ring for the lip of a pot. He also has started to make lids for Snow Peak Ti-mugs. His recent endevor was a new bottom that featured heat sinks. The question was, was it worth the time that he put into the manufacturing of this new pot. This is the kind of thing that I love about Tinny, hes always experimenting with new ideas and designs. That is the reason that I consider him the finest alcohol stove builder around. This is also why I only carry Mini Bull stoves. Here's the video from his site that explaines the rest.

See you on the trail,


  1. Hey Lance, just to clarify, I didn't work with Tinny on the lids. I worked with Don from Four Dog Stoves.

    Also, to answer your question, I think Tinny went a little far with this one. By the time you add and remove everything he did, it's not really a Heineken pot anymore. You might as well build the whole thing from scratch (which, actually I would like to see Tinny do). -Jason Klass

  2. Hey Jason,

    I have corrected the my mistake. I know you had talked with him about it and assumed you had hashed out the idea togeather. I also agree with you about the pot. I like my Hieniken pot but I would love to see him make a MBD pot.
