Energy Drink wick stove

Post by zelph » Mon Feb 23, 2009 2:33 pm

I used an aluminum energy drink bottle to make this simple wickatized stove with integrated pot stand. This stove was made awhile back on Whiteblaze.net

The weight of the stove is: Weighs 31 grams 1.093 ounces

I mounted a hacksaw blade to a piece of lumber the thickness that I wanted the stove to be. The blade has two holes for mounting with small screws. I beleive the blade is considerd a medium cut/tooth. Mount the blade so that the teeth cut when you pull the bottle towards you. It's much esier to pull and cut than to push.

Want a taller stove, add a piece of lumber under the one with the blade attached. (shown in photo)

Clamp the lumber to a working surface. Shown is a formica table top.

Put some bar soap or bees wax or parrafin on surface that bottle will slide on to make it slippery and easy to pull towards you.

Take your time, have patience, take your time, cut a tiny bit at a time and turn, cut a tiny bit and turn, cut a tiny bit and turn. Thats the way!!! Now you got the hang of it

These stoves are really easy to make, the wick makes the stove!!!!!

Put some wick material in your existing stove and let it stick up above the rim by 1/4 inch and see what a differnce it makes in how it burns. It brings the fuel from the bottom up to the top to expose it to oxygen to get a better burn.

I don't remember seeing this stove. I know it works but here are my three thoughts after reading the thread. 1) I really like the hack saw blade idea. (easier that utility blade) 2) Loose fiberglas cloth can be lost and come unraveled(even though the edges are finished) 3) I can't believe you used that snapple bottle without somehow incorporating the unique top part of the bottle. :P :lol: You have progressed significantly since those days Grasshopper ! ;)

It was an excercise in showing how easy it is to make wick style stoves. (1 piece)

Bottle tops!!!! we need to find a use for the tops of aluminum bbottles that are being used for the cobalt stoves.

Funnel would be one use :geek: I used one not long ago to add anti-freeze to my car.
