Gas cyclinder/fire place conversion


Hi all,
The last time that I went camping I saw that a couple of vans had converted gas
cyclinders to fire places / stove tops / bbq plates.
What I trying to find out has any member tried it an if did they doument the process
with photographs, designs, ideas etc.   So far I have got the valve out and have filled
it with water a couple of times.   How often will I have to flush it before the smell/gas
is gone, and how long will it be brfore it is safe to saw a drill.    Is there any advantage
in having a door in it smile, apart from loading it.

If you go to the Caravan and Motorhome Forum, and scroll down to Bright Ideas, then Click on Choofers, I think you'll find what you're after.

Cheers,
Sheba.

Also type in choofers in the search engine at the top of this page. Some info there.
Sorry, don't know how to do a link for it.

Typing "choofer" into Google gets good results as well.

Nice bit of gear, My mother brought one while in Queens land .She is 90 and still travels, so there is no hope for me. When she came home I thought I could make one for my self.. Easy as. Found that a thin cutting blade was best .and marked it all out before cutting.. And welded the hing on the door before finishing the round cut.. Other than that a breezzzz.. And it works well..BobnBev

Oh how I wish I could weld and do things like that with metal, just does' work the same when made from timber.

That is one skill I never realy took to, working with metal unless it bolts together, instead I am left to marvel and admire the handyworks of others.

Great looking camp stove there BobnBev.
