Today i'm going to show you how to build a portable alcohol stove made from two cans
it burns great. There is a lot of steps but it does not take more 10-15 minutes to build.

 p.s. This is my firist instructable, so if there is some thing to make this better please tell me

Step 1: What you Need

Two Cans
Chalk bits
A razor
needle nose plyers
sharpie or marker
A clamp
a ruler
 a inch thick book
Sharpie sized book
denatured alcohol 

Optional tools and material
Wire or coat hanger i use wire
wire cutter
inslation can be  used  instead of chalk
lighting can a tuna fish can that a soda can will fit in with room to spare
does it require the chalk to operate?
Yes It does. the chalk act as a wick for the fuel, if you don't have chalk there're substitutes for chalk.However I have never used them.
That's not true at all. These stoves work because the heat of the flame vaporizes the alcohol. The vapor travels out the jets and burns. There's no wicking going on anywhere. I've made dozens of these through the years and have never needed to put anything in them.
Thanks for the information I was going on what I assumed to be the purpose of the chalk.
