Warning!
Always be careful when dealing with fire
extra caution is needed when dealing with alcohol flame because they burn blue and are hard to see

Step 1: Gather Peaces

you will need:
1-1" brass tubing adapter
1-penny (can or usa)
1 cotton makeup application pad
isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol)
or
methyl hydrate (engine line antifreeze)

Step 2: Stuff Cotton Pad Into Brass Insert

insert cotton pad into brass insert

note: make sure the cotton pads are 100%cotton otherwise it could catch fire and start to melt and release toxic smoke into the air

Step 3: Cap End With Penny

stick penny into end hard using thumb

if it doesn't stay on its one try at a different angle

NEVER USE TAPE OR GLUE
DOING SO MAY CATCH ON FIRE
and you have to replace the cotton pad after about 1 hour of use

Step 4: Add Fuel

add about 5ml of fuel in to the cotton top

to little and you wont get a light

to much and it will leak out the bottom setting fire to everything
SO DON'T OVER-FILL !!!

Step 5: Done! :0)

ignite your new burner with a match or a lighter

it should burn between 10 and 16 minutes depending on the fuel used

<p>Instead of cotton, why not place fiberglass in it? It's used all the time in alcohol stoves. </p>
<p>This rocks. What do you put under it if you were on a say wooden work bench&quot;. Sounds fun. Thanks!</p>
lamp oil works really well
Also, acetone(nail polish remover) works just as well :)
You could also solder the penny in, depending on it's composition and that of the tubing adaptor.
&nbsp;peaces?
Pieces
enough to fry a small egg :)
Are you Canadian? Or do you just like disposing Canadian pennies? Lol. Well, it's not like fire's going to ruin the penny...Very cool, though! xD<br />
cool idea maybe it'll work with fondu duel
not really a bunsen burner, more like an alcohol burner, still cool though.
thats a cool idea. I'll have to try this.
