  • DIY Survival Projects Part 4: Can Alcohol Stove

    Here's another alcohol stove that I have made before.




    Made from two aluminum cans.


    Step 1: Punch holes like so in the bottom of one of the cans.


    Step 2: Leave the other can bottom whole. Cut off both cans about 2" from the bottom.


    Step 3: Pack the bottom of the can with cotton.


    Step 4: Fit the two halves together. This may take some coaxing since the cans are about the same size, but through careful fitting, they will go together. This is what it should look like.


    Step 5: Now add your fuel through the center hole. Add until the cotton inside is saturated.


    Step 6: Light the stove through the center hole. This may take some time as the fuel needs to reach it's vapor point to burn. Let it burn like this for several seconds to allow the fuel to heat up and vaporize.


    When the fuel has been brought to the proper temperature, place a penny, or other piece of non-flammable material over the center hole. Of course if you are going to set a pot or metal cup directly onto the stove, the penny or center hole cover won't be necessary. That can be tricky to do though, so I usually place the stove between two rocks, then place my container of choice on the rocks.


    The fuel will continue to heat up and vaporize and eventually you'll have a good flame.

    To extinguish, cover with a pot or cup. I have been able to blow it out, but I wouldn't recommend it as the flames could flare up and burn your face.

    It's a good idea to have a small, secure, bottle for your fuel as any fuel left in the stove will eventually evaporate.
    I carry this stove in a zip-loc bag, just be sure to let it complete cool down after use before stowing it.

    I have tested this stove thoroughly, and it burns really hot, please be careful when using this stove. Once lit, DO NOT attempt to move it or touch it!
    It will boil water in a little more than a minute.
    I've used it in a black out to cook on also.

    Stay tuned, more survival projects on the way!
