|Working with titanium foil:
Titanium foil can be cut with a good pair of scissors quite easily. Holes can be punched using a standard hole punch
used for paper, though it will require a lot more force. For the most part you do not need a lot of expensive tools, or
much skill to work with it. While a spot welder is really nice for sticking this stuff together, you can use staples too.
The foil is about the same thickness as a sheet of paper, so when it comes time to prototype a project, just build it out of
paper first. When you get it right with the paper, you have a pattern to trace onto your foil.
This foil is Grade 2 and can be bent and formed without heat.
Titanium foil project ideas:
Wind screens: By cutting the foil to the inside height of your pot, you can roll the wind screen up and store it inside
your pot. A titanium wind screen built with .005" thick titanium will be very durable, and very stable in the wind. You can
use a hole punch to put holes around the bottom of it for intake air. A 4" x 24" wind screen, with out holes in it, will weigh
1.13oz, and last a lifetime.
Pot lid: Using your existing pot lid, you can trace the right size circle onto your foil to create a super light weight lid.
With a hole punched in it, you can use your fork to remove it from the pot, and it will vent steam.
Lantern reflector: Whether its a hood type, or a side style reflector, it should be pretty light built out of titanium.
