User Review: MYOG Tuna Can Alcohol Stove
Source: Made it.
- easy to make
- need a wind screen
- not that stable
Bought a can of tuna salad and crackers. After I finished eating I got to looking at the tin can and thought it would work good as a lightweight alcohol stove.
Got home and drilled holes every sixteenth of an inch around the can and it works like a champ. A small 3 oz bottle of alcohol and the stove only weighs 3.5 oz. Will boil 8 oz cup of water in about 4 minutes.
Need a wind screen for best results. Great for keeping in your day pack just in case and fits in my GSA stainless steel cup. I made a couple of them to put in my packs for backup and in the vehicles' emergency kits.
