Introduction: Build an Altoids/tin Can Stove With Just a Knife/without ANY Tools!
Optional:Make lots of holes on the upper part so it achieves maximum ventilation potential!
I was bored today and while trying to come up with something interesting I stumbled into this. I got my tin can (it can be an altoids, I guess) and in a few seconds I had a compact, cool stove with me!
Perfect for hobos, camping and survival! A LOT safer than the alcohol stoves!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Items Needed
You will only need a tin container. That's right, only that. No tools, nothing. Well, you MIGHT need to cut the holes, but it's not hard, really.
I got this tin container from first grade. It had some rulers and math instruments. Ignore the horrible red colouring.
Step 2: Making of the Stove
Now, you'll need to remove the top part of the container. Then, you will bend or cut holes where the "holders" of the two parts are. Simple. Move your pointer over the boxes, I have explained it in a simple manner.
Step 3: Assembly and How to Use
All you'll need to do is put the top part over the other. Then, you put some twigs in the holes which you removed or cut. These holes will also work as a way to supply oxygen to your fire, which is a must.
Step 4: That's It!
It probably took you less than a minute or two. I hope you are happy with your new stove!
