FF Stove Snuffer and Container

I love my modified Fancee Feast stove but for me it has 2 draw backs; no on/off switch and no way to recover unused fuel. I built a container that works as a snuffer to extinguish the flame and as a container to preserve the unburned fuel stored in the wick which would be lost through evaporation when not in use. Ok, I may be a fuel miser but watching precious fuel burn after I remove a boiling pot of water just goes against my grain. I would also submit that my stove does now indeed have an on/off switch.

I cut down a large 23oz drink can and trimmed the lip from a small glad storage container. Slide the lip of the cut down plastic container over another unaltered container to provide a slight flare when pressing onto the rim of the can. Applying a thin layer of epoxy around the inside of the rim of the can when pressing on the plastic lip will keep the lip in place. A small hole drilled or melted in the lid will keep the lid from popping at altitude. Total weight is 18gm.

Edit: Fixed. I signed up for Photobucket. Thanks Admin.

Admin edit:

Apparently google photos doesn't play nice with Hppb. I've tried a couple of different avenues to fix it (I posted the direct link above).

Photobucket, imgur, and pics uploaded to the HH.net Facebook page don't have any problems with posting a direct link:
