It turned out that this can looked more sinister than I'd realized. One of the ingredients was "CASSLAE SEMEN" - yuck.

However it turns out that that referred to a seed (which should probably read "CASSIAE"), and the drink itself was just like brown rice green tea. All the "cereal" talk was just stuff that was infused into the tea. Whew!

I wouldn't be so sure about that. :lol: Have you seen this Japanese drink called Placenta 10000? :shock:

It's pretty much done. I'm just waiting to get some spectra line for the fuel bag. My brother and I are planning on going to the store on Wednesday.

At first I thought "that sounds even worse than Pokari Sweat" (which is, of course, not made out of sweat). Then I realized that stuff is actual placenta, so not only does it sound gross, is most certainly is.

Irrationalsolutions, here's the complete I.V. Stove.

Image

Now for the good part!

This stove, in its current form, is a complete failure. The critical component in this setup is the fuel control valve and as you'll soon see it just isn't up to the job. I could not locate a decent valve so I tried making one. There are a few things I learned through this:
1. Don't use crappy homemade valves.
2. Don't ignore your inner voice and use the cookie sheet.
3. Secure the testing area and remove all valuables.
4. Don't use crappy homemade valves.

The last 5 photos in this set are the new ones:

Be prepared to laugh uncontrollably at this testing video. :lol:

there is no failure as long as you learned something.

you learned not to trust your valve. but the questions remain; why not?; how could you make it not be a problem?; where was the cookie sheet anyway? :D

you do know of course that alcohol fires can be put out with water? just knock over the pot and the fire goes out.

Wow, that WAS a good one. :) We've all done that one time of another. ;) I agree with the Deacon,...where was the cookie sheet? :lol: So the valve was a failure this time. Time to look for a new valve. Have you checked into the hobby shop to see what is availabe for gasoline model airplanes, cars, boats, etc ? I can remember my dad building large model airplanes thart used a 0.35 engine and had a detached fuel tank. Might be worth looking into. :)

The Mr. Brown tin looks like it would make a great cook pot. It is wider and has the rigid rings. Did you say that it was a ferrous metal can ?

Wow! That was a bit too exciting. As things could have gone, you made out OK. Maybe testing with water first would be a good idea to check flow rate and overflow prevention. Maybe drop the bag below the stove if it gets to flowing too strong next time. I seem to remember a plastic clamp for controlling IV flow including full off but don't know where to get them. Know any nurses?

Thanks for sharing :lol:
