the heating element exploded in my face, I'm just glad I didn't set off the smoke alarms

I had this idea when looking at my glue gun... who knew they already made this?

Interesting. I think I prefer the little mini-stoves that burn your choice of readily-available fuels, from rubbing alcohol (91% ideally, but 70% will work, it just smokes like the dickens) to HEET. I would be afraid that little wire base would not be stable. Also, those will work when there is no electricity. But this was very clever, and looks very easy!

I was going to try if a solder gun could work for me. I want to build a small stove to heat up some soup and stuff when I get hungry.

Great i'ble! The only problem is that if you are camping, you don't have an outlet.

I saw the 'ible, then I saw the video, and I still think it's a nice idea, but too unstable to be properly safe.

ventsi (author)Kiteman2008-12-06

safe may be not but in some situations can be useful

wibrle (author)2008-12-05
