While looking at camp stoves I thought that I needed a tiny one.
This is a wood burning (tea Light Alternative) miniature camp stove.
The stove is made from scrap copper tubing and about 3 hours of my time.
I used 2 5/8 copper tube and basic copper plumbing tube. all connections are brazed using my Smith Mini Torch.
When completed It will boil water and keep going for up to 25 minutes.
All that is missing is a laser etched maple leaf
Step 1: Materials
I used scrap copper tubing that was 2 5/8 inside diameter. Along with small sections of regular 3/4 and 1/2 inch rigid plumbing copper.
You will need a section of flat copper. I used a section of the scrap tube to provide this. Flatten using scrap pieces of wood and a hammer rather than just a hammer since this will deform the metal. You want an even, flat surface.
Cut a section roughly the diameter of your tube for the burner box then another section that is the diameter of the pipe for the top and bottom caps.
Step 2: Make the burner box
Using 3/8 inch tubing, make two hinge pivots ant are 1/4 inch wide. Flatten one side with a file than braze to the side near the opening that was cut.
Cut a small section of 3/4 inch tubing that is about 1/4 inch wider than the the section that is cut out of the body tubing. Curve this to match the curve of the body.
Placethe 3/4 inch tubing over the opening of the body and mark the perimeter and index one side.
Step 3: Prepare and Fasten the end caps.
Enclose the body with end caps.
Drill one of the end caps with a 1/2 inch hole for toe top and braze the end caps on.
Use a file to clean up the edges.
