It's hard to say how much interest folks will have in actually building this stove, so I'll just post some photos and a brief description for now.

I got the idea from the Sterno Turbo found on Zenstoves.net.

Materials used are a Budweiser aluminum bottle, 2 1/4" tea-lite tin from Jo-Ann's( Thanks a bunch, Zelph! ), three 1/2" binding post extensions, and three 8-32 aluminum screws( screen door hardware ).

You don't need to do a thing to the tea-lite tin.

The Budweiser bottle gets a 1 1/4" hole in the middle plus three 8-32 holes drilled and tapped for the potstand(1/2" binding post extensions), and I used a Dremel tool to make it look like this.

Finished stove. Note the slits @ 3/8" down from the top.

I've done a half dozen bench tests so far and the stove consistently boils two cups in 5:30 in a Heineken pot. And it boils an additional two minutes after that. Every time so far.

Here is a shot of the stove in full bloom.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. :mrgreen: Total weight is 14 grams.

Getting free advertising. Sorry Zelph, clicked on it before reading your post. Needs deleted.

Nice Stove Skids. Looks like flame coming out the side slit and the top. Will it burn as a side burner without pot supports and pot right on the burner? Well done, as usual. ;)
