  • DIY Survival Projects Part 10: Mini Rocket Stove "Son Of Rocket Stove"



    This will look familiar to those that have read my other tutorial about building a rocket stove.
    Read about making the full sized version here: https://members.gunnook.com/content....a-Rocket-Stove

    Well, I'm calling this one "Son of Rocket Stove".

    Like father, like son.


    By miniturizing the design you can make a much smaller version that's even more portable.
    This version can be stashed in a backpack, so it's a better option for survivalists, hikers, and campers. While it won't be as powerful as a full sized rocket stove, it is still very capable and will still boil water and cook food.

    Here's the materials you'll need to build one.


    • 1x 4" diameter 28 oz can and it's removed top lid
    • 3x 10.5 oz regular soup cans
    • Insulation (Kitty litter, sand, perlite, vermiculite, dirt)
    • Wire hanger
    • (Optional) Stove and fireplace mortar
    • (Optional) High heat stove paint





    Here's the tools you'll need.

    • For safety wear heavy gloves, the edges of the cut cans are dangerously sharp. Safety goggles should be worn also because of the danger of flying metal particles.
    • A Sharpie for marking cut lines.
    • Tin snips or a Dremel rotary tool for making the cuts.
    • A straight edge screwdriver for starting cut holes if you're using snips.
    • A hammer for punching holes with the screwdriver and flattening can.
    • A can opener.
    • A file for removing loose metal from cuts.
    • Pliers for straightening bent can edges.
    • Fireplace and Stove Mortar. (Optional) This isn't really needed, but it does help to seal up gaps making the stove more solid, more efficient and makes sure loose insulation doesn't leak out. It's also good to have in case you have an oops moment and make the holes too large.





    Step 1a: Use the smaller can you intend to use for the side fuel/air chamber to mark cut lines on the 28 oz can.
     
    Step 1b: Use screwdriver to make starter hole. Cut out the hole. Use file to remove any loose metal spurs if needed.
     
    Step 2a: Remove the bottom of intended side can.




    Step 2b: Place the inner chimney can into the 28 oz can so it's centered inside. Insert the side can through, then mark where the top of the side can touches the chimney can.
     
    Step 2c: Mark and cut the chimney can hole using the side can as a template. Test fit with chimney can. More trimming may be need to make it fit.

     
    Step 2d: Insert side can through 28 oz can into chimney can.




    Step 3a: Remove bottom of spare 10.5 oz can and flatten it by stepping on it, flatten more with hammer if needed.



     
    Step 3b: Measure and mark flattened can so when cut it, it will fit into the middle of the side can. This will be your fuel shelf.



     
    Step 3c: Snip the ends off of the tabs to separate the two halves of the flattened can making two single shelves. Keep the other half to use as a spare. The tabs on the end serve to stop the shelf from going in too far and are used for shelf removal. It should look like this.


    Step 3d: Measure, mark, and cut slots in side can for shelf tabs.






     
    Step 3e: Insert shelf into side can, it should be long enough to reach the end of your side can, if it's longer, you can trim it, if it's a bit shorter, don't worry about it, it'll still work. Now bend tabs down. Using these tabs, the shelf can be removed for cleaning. Make sure to use a file to take down the sharp cut edges on the tabs to avoid cut fingers while removing.
     
    Step 4: (Optional) Apply mortar around side can where it enters the 28oz and inside the chimney can. Every gap you seal is going to increase the efficiency of your stove. Let mortar cure for at least 4 hours.





    Step 5: Fill with insulation to the rim of chimney can. Tap side of can to make sure every space is evenly filled.

     
    Step 6a: Measure and mark spaces around 28oz can rim. Approximately where the red lines are shown. Cut slots into the rim where marked, make sure cuts go down to the top of the insulation.
     
    Step 6b: Bend down 4 opposite tabs to insulation. You can use a hammer if needed.




    Step 6c: Cut center from 28 oz can top and place on top.



     
    Step 6d: Bend down the other 4 opposite cut tabs over the lid to hold it in place.



     
    Step 7: (Optional) Use mortar to seal around chimney top. Don't seal the outside of the can lid though, only around the chimney top. This allows for any moisture or pressure that builds up to escape.


    Step 8: Drill opposing holes in the top tabs and add a wire handle for easy carrying.

    If insulated properly the outside should be cool or slightly warm to the touch.
    Step 9: (Optional) Make your mini-rocket stove look good and protected from rust by spray painting it with high temp stove paint.

    Step 10: (Optional) Add a small cast iron burner grate or round grill to put cookware on.

    This stove functions just like the larger rocket stove so do a test burn the same as described in that tutorial.




    I certainly hope you enjoyed this tutorial and found it to be informative.
    Let me know how you like it by leaving a comment. I'd love to hear from you and maybe see a picture of the rocket stove you built.

    Thanks for reading. -Sasquatch

      Got some questions.
      1. How long does it take to make? prep and set up for materials (i.e.) mortar
      2. How much fuel would something like this use? Whats the equation of time to fuel?
      3. what would you think the approximate heat output would be?
      3a Could you honestly use this for a heat source for a mud brick oven?
      4. Storage? How do you clean something like this w/o ripping it all up and how would you transport something like this if backpacking/camping in the woods?

      1. You can have one built and ready to use in 5-6 hours. 1-2 hours if you skip the mortar and paint.
      2. A handful of pencil sized sticks will get you enough burn time and heat to boil water. If more is needed just add it.
      3. In BTU's? I have no idea. Speaking non-scientifically, once it gets going, don't hold your hand over the chimney, REAL hot.
      3a. Not sure, but if you have a mud brick oven, why would you need a rocket stove?
      4. Just pull the shelf and/or turn upside down to empty the ashes. Use a damp cloth/dish soap to wipe off any food spillage, store it in a dry place. Doesn't need much more cleaning than that. This thing's worst enemy is rust, that's why I recommend 2-3 coats of stove paint. I suppose it could be rebuilt with new cans if one wears out. To transport it, it 's small enough to fit inside a backpack, or use the handle to hang it off a pack.
