This is an instructable on how to make an Altoids stove. This is the perfect pocket-sized companion for anyone.
So, here are the materials:
a. You need an empty Altoids tin for the main body of the stove
b. Some candles to melt to provide fuel for the stove
c. A piece of newspaper to use as a wick
d. A wire hanger for a handle
e. A piece of metal to make a stand ( you can use any flat piece of metal, but I used another Altoids lid because I have a bunch of Altoid containers).
Step 1: Removing the Lid
First we are going to remove the lid. Here's how:
a. Take some pliers and bend back the hinges and remove the lid.
b. Take a pair of tin snips or wire cutters ( I used tin snips) and cut off the hinges.
c. Make sure to save the lid, you will need it later.
