This is not my video but, I found this one on YouTube. I have "built" a couple of other ones but, not this particular one yet.
This one is a tiny bit more complicated to build than some of the other ones but, it seems to be the cats ass with regard to its actual simplicity of use.
These tiny little "pop can" jet alcohol burners are great because you can actually use them hundreds of times and they weigh next to nothing.
They just can't be beat for boiling up that cup or two of water for preparing dehydrated pouch meals or making a cup of tea or instant coffee & boiled water purification.
Think about making one when you have some free time and feel like puttering around.
See It In Use First....then you'll want to build one.

There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
Yep, been using that one for a long time.
Most of the Boyscouts around here are familiar with that trick.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

I have made several different soda can burners in the past.
This design seems to be better than most of the others.
Thanks, will have to try it.

That was new to me too. Book marked it for future reference. Pretty cool little stove! Thanks for posting.

That was really slick. And yes, now I must build one.
Taught my son a little trick ... On his very first camp out with the Boy Scouts it rained and no one could get a fire going. He pulled out some 0000 steel-wool and a 9v battery and after all the laughing and jokes died down he started a fire
Not only were all the veteran and rookie scouts amazed but so were all the other adult leaders. He quickly became very popular
I'd build one, but I have one of these for backpacking. There's a lot to love about alcohol. Mainly, there is no noise. Which is a plus when you are out enjoying the woods. The main drawback though is they are a bit slower. With the commercial ones you get a dampner to control the flame more. I've used mine to back pizza and bread, make apple crisp, and seen someone make a quiche on it.

There is also NO smoke- which could be very important if one is trying to be surreptitious.

"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
Our scout troop completed a 5 day, 50 mile hike last summer and most of the scouts used the "soda can", or "penny stove" for their cooking needs. Mostly boiling water for freeze dried meals.
Cheap, easy, and effective. If you loose or damage it - 2 pop cans and you're back in business.

I also have the VARGO Triad Titanium alcohol stove. I really like it so much that I'm going to buy another one for my little Bro.
It's really not necessary to prime it from underneath. It will self prime.
You can flip it over and also use the flat bottom for solid fuel like wetfire and trioxane or heximine tabs.
Not my video but it's a short one to show the nice blue flame pattern.
