Picture of How to Make a Homemade Alcohol Burner/ Small Stove =)



This guide will show you how to construct a small alcohol stove for any number of uses. Things you should know;
never flip upside down even when cap is on,
NEVER EVER light when wick is not in ( It will shoot a rocket of fire out of the hole and it will burn you and make a loud noise),
if you decide to use a less pure or toxic form of fuel always use outdoors.

And I here by declare that I am not liable for anything! At all!
Now let us have some fun =)

You will need:
a can of tuna
a can opener
a ziplock bag
a hammer and nail
plyers
some cloth or rope
a hot glue gun
a bottle cap
and a lighter

Step 1: Step One

Picture of Step One

Grab your tuna and your can opener. Proceed to open the can and empty the contents into a ziplock bag for later use.

Step 2: Step 2

Picture of Step 2

Take your hammer and nail and hammer the end of the nail into the middle of the tuna can.
Now make a flower pattern around the center hole to punch out the hole.
Use the plyers to bend the jagged ends upward so you dont lose your wick.

Step 3: Step 3

Now take your cloth/rope and string it through the hole in the lid of the can so that a fair amount pokes out of the top.
Also pour a small to medium amount of alcohol into the base of the tuna can.

Step 4: Step 4

Now glue the lid on by placing a drop of glue at four opposite corners.

Step 5: Step 5

You are now ready to light.
If things dont seem right dont risk lighting it there is no point in getting hurt.

Step 6: Step 6

YOU HAVE FIRE.
 ...hopefully...
If you do pop a cap on it when your done.
When you run out of fuel you can refill assuming you didnt go crazy with the hot glue pop the glue off and refill, or use a sraw/ funnel.

Using chicken wire you can fasion a grill top to cook things
Before you do you need to cook off the coating in a campfire to prevent harmful gases

ENJOY!!!

Lord, how I hate the smell of tuna. They have chicken in cans this size, maybe I'll do chicken.

Neat idea though.
