Step 4: Score the second can and press in place

Score the uncut can that you just put the four filler holes into 1″ from the bottom (do not cut this can yet).

Press the uncut can into the cut can. I use a small block of wood and lightly tap it in. Press the cans together to the 1″ score line you made earlier. Tear the can at the score.

Hi!<br><br>Some time ago I've (re)invented a stove that is very similar to your stove (and to the peyo revolution...); it only have one thing I don't like: if I let it burn WITHOUT the pot over it (in real life it can happen), the top of the stove melts...<br><br>Have you ever had this problem with your stove?<br>
Never had one melt. Are you using Denatured Alcohol for fuel? I've heard other fuels burn too hot and will melt the aluminum.
Thank for the answer!<br><br>Yes, I'm using denaturated alcohol (90% ethilic alcohol).<br><br>But please confirm: have you ever tried letting the stove burn all the alcohol (in my tests, about 20ml) WITHOUT THE POT over? (it usually makes no sense, but it is a good test for the durability of a stove...)<br><br>With the pot over, my stove has no problem...<br>
can you use a soup can?<br />
No soup cans. Soda/beer cans. Soup cans would be too thick.<br />
