I enjoyed watching this. Real diy with available tools and parts (some welding).
Their hole punch sure is easy to use.

Nice video... Just goes to show what can be done with very few tools, spare parts, and plenty of ingenuity...

I had a real aha moment at ~3min in when he bent that lower grate so he could insert it into the stove, and then he flattened it back out.

"press fit" takes on a whole new meaning :D I agree, the 3 min mark was an AhhhHaaa moment.

Tinsmithing is alive and well over there.

That coil type burner was interesting. Is that what it could be called? Opps, your opinion here ;)

no its not a coil burner its like them optimus and primus but taller the fuel goes up the out side tube get hot at the top then back down the other tube at the jet to adjust the flame raise or lower the can witch is kerosine looks like a propane touch jet. oh the fuel can be gasoline also

I was wondering about that too. It does have the look of a coil burner with that pressurized bit. Thanks for the explanation.

Thanks for setting us straight. The optimuses and other types like it are pressurized. This gravity fedd one makes me think coil without the wick material. Wait, maybe there is a wick of sorts in ther to prevent it from gushing out. What do ya tink?

Everytime I come to this thread, I watch the video again :D Interesting to see how easy it is for the artisans to do their thing. I simple I beam makes for a great bending/forming tool.

I just had the idea to use a gravity fed line going into a coil stove and to use kerosene instead of alcohol stove.

Oops, you got some time to spare to try that out on one your many coil stoves. You got one to sacrifice for the advancement of stove technology ;)

the jet hole size for kerosine not the same for alcohol or colmen
