He doesn't mess around :D

It must have been hot when he lit it. Jets come on quick. Wonder how he primes it.

There's quite a jump in the picture at 1:13...Appears a segment has been cut out of the film..probably a couple minutes of burn,adding primer(When it comes back up,it's burning on the top of the cap below the coils..hmm)..seems to be quite a bit missing of the video.. ;)..maybe even some 'torch' preheating.... :roll:

3 coils boil a lot faster than one for sure.

All you have to do with a coil burner to prime it is hold it between your fingers. The heat of your body will draw the fuel up the wick to the jet hole. ;)

Why have we been priming ours with alcohol? :?

Take a look at this ebay item. See if you can get some ideas on how to incorporate the idea into a stove. Just using the principle, not the cylinders. Oops56 has a few of these and I have one.

Guess I must ask this? From where is the jet drilled?

One hole is drilled prior to making it into a coil. The jet is on the inside surface of the coil on the bottom. The flame shoots upward to heat the coil above it and that starts the process.

I'll see if I can get you a link to the "Taykit" coil stove to get a better view of hole placement..

Search this thread for a photo that might show where the flame originates from.

The heat of your fingers is just enough to draw fuel up the wick to the jet hole. Once lit, the flame is very small but as it heats the coil above it, the tank is pressurized thus increasing the flame size and intensity.
