thanks for finding that Oops!
it answered three questions for me.
1) yes a glass jar can be used.
2) both tubes both go right to the bottom of the fuel container.
3) no wick showing at the bottom of the tubes.

i still need to figure out jet placemant and sizing. any help greatly appreciated.

i figure i'll prototype useing tiny sealer jars and j-b weld. then, for the final, i'll use three inch copper pipe with the top and bottom tig welded in. copper coils silver soldered in, and a nice brass filler cap that i will turn out on my lathe.

Pipe cleaners might work well or even some 6# fiberglass cloth that's used on your kayaks.

This single burner looks like a place to start http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Bl0Yr_wS0U&feature=relatedNice find Oops :D I'll put this one on the back burner :mrgreen:

DarenN, using 3" pipe will be big enough to heat your garage workshop :D

In the beggining of the video it shows wick hanging out the bottom of tube on the left hand side.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqMLmllQ%20...%20ser/RJBURG
Tip to all: Insert wick material before bending tube into a coil.

Edited: and also drill hole in tube before bending.

sorry about that. :oops: it's 2 1/2 inch copper pipe and i'm not using it for the coil! ;) it's for the fuel reservoir and will only be 1-2 inches tall.

someone said that the wicks stop short of the coil. that's how i did mine, and it worked. do you know something you're not saying? 8-) :D

seriously; it would be difficult to keep the jet centered as you roll the coil. roll the coil first, then drill the jet, then cut the legs to length.
the heat from silver soldering the coil legs to the lid would probably burn the wick. i'll install the wicks after i solder the lid to the cup. the bottom will go on last. (i'd like to make the coil removable; but haven't come up with an idea for that yet.i'll look around for copper plumbing fittings.)

Zelph, nice looking stove! Did you make that one? :lol: Is that some sort of flame control lever below the burner or just a spreader? I want one of those too! :lol:
