A very popular DIY design, I noticed instructables was lacking a "rolled edge" aluminum bottle stove instructable so I figured I'd make one. These are fun an easy to make. Once you make the die you can reuse it over and over to make more stoves. The photos should pretty much explain everything but if I missed something or you need clarification feel free to ask in the comments section.

I've made a hobby out of making these little stoves, and once I made one of these rolled aluminum stoves, I found it's by far my favorite. VERY sturdy and great flame.

I have used the scissors jack from my car in place of the hydraulic jack. Just be VERY careful to keep everything aligned and stable.

I just got 2 aluminum Bud light bottles and I was wondering if I could stand on the die to roll the lip. I only have 240lbs. (109kg) to work with though. I really don't want to go buy a hydraulic jack or a shop press to do this.
Nicely presented, Clear instructions, Pictures, Warnings, Tool and Material requirements, a demonstration video.... I'd say you covered everything. I've tried a few of the penny stoves made with thin aluminum cans and I prefer this design personally. Keep up the good work. +1 for this guy

Not sure why this got rejected for the Indestructables contest, I can stand on the thing and it won't crush and it's fireproof :) Oh well, hopefully there is a camping contest later this year I can submit it to.
