Monthly Project - December 2013
« on: December 01, 2013, 06:05:05 AM »
BUILD AN ALCOHOL STOVE


There are many types online. Too many variations to show them all. zenstoves.net is probably the best overall resource i've found yet...

i prefer simple, easy to build stoves for the most part. here's a couple of examples:


tealight alcohol stove (needs a pot stand)










potted meat stove (no pot stand required)



2 rows of sixteen holes, about a 1/4 inch apart. basically you need a lot of holes, play around and figure out what works for you.









it ain't pretty, but hey, you're getting ready to set it on fire, remember?








and finally a single can stove, made from a 12 oz redbull can.

cut can in half



cut bottom of can


cut top of can a little taller than bottom (about 1/2 inch or so)


both halves done


dent top of can using fingers and thumb


go all the way around and it should look like this


put the two halves together





it was a little too tall and wouldn't send flames out the side bends


so i shortened both halves


success!







have fun and try different options.

I'll see what kind of materials I can round up. I have some thick aluminum beer bottles that will make a sturdy stove. Just have to figure out what kind of stove to build.

For anyone wanting to try something new, this guy's got some interesting designs.

Now you know I've got a pile of those things!


Stand by, and I'll post up some photos of a few of'em.


Do you still have the ones we made from axe cans on our Feb outing??

Yes, I like them pretty good.  Not to big, nor to small - work well, and quite sturdy. 


It was indeed your good&quick thinking that allowed them to be built on that outing.  When those lite weight shears I brought just were not getting it done, You tried the awl & it worked fantastically well!! 
Though it was to cold that morning to get the alcohol to light without heating it over flame (not generally a good idea: and I still chuckle when I remember SamBunyon casually mentioning, "dude... your hand/glove is on fire..."  and indeed, lol, it was)

that pic isn't the whole story. i didn't poke all the way through and do two holes at once. i actually only did one hole at a time and barely put the awl through, i just wanted the picture to clearly show a hole being poked in the can. it was done VERY carefully, believe me

Made this one from am AXE container. Made like a regular soda can stove, but I like the little indention by the hole where the fuel is loaded.It allows me to put a lil fuel there to prime the stove. And since the top and bottom is used, you can make it from one can.

Made a taller version today to hold the pot a lil higher. I like this one better. I also drilled to drilled double holes (accident due to trial and error) and it seems it makes the flames go straighter up as opposed to out and up. Not sure, gonna make another the same size with single holes and compare the direction of the flames.

LOL, that's your warning?  I thought you were going to say, "emptying half a can of AXE may result in a stampede of pheromone induced women!"   :lol:

Make a neat little penny stove though WB!

I didn't make these today. They are, in fact, from the stove age.

a little late, but it just coincided with a personal interest of mine.  used an axe spray can design with the monster can.  I really liked the fact that this came with it's own priming pan and the wider base.

the two halves.


joined with jb weld


the lighting of the primer


we have ignition

So... I never got to making a stove last month. With the dog and then the holidays it was kind of a nightmare. :P But I still wanted to try a new design.

Tonight I made this stove:







I boiled some water for tea and it works pretty well, but I think I still like a couple of my other stoves better. Oh, well. I always enjoy making these things.

lgm,


I like the looks of that one.  It looks similar, if not the same, as the ones we were putting together on the last VA/NC outing.  Getting a boil in four minutes is impressive!

Thanks,
 This not where I saw it first but here it

 I am exactly sure how long the boil took. I looked at my watch late. It was faster then I thought it would be.
What a great day to be outside.
