Specialty Bottle Samples

Postby Allen » Thu Apr 03, 2008 11:48 pm

DarenN mentioned in another thread that aluminum bottles could be hard to find in Canada,
and they don't exactly grow on trees around here. I found out that this company:

Has two different diameter aluminum bottles. The bottles are bigger than these pics:

They also give samples. Just scroll down the FAQ page I posted the link to, for details.

They also have Plastic bottles for fuel, and lots of Tins that would make good stoves.

Hey Allen,

We have a few health food stores that sell those bottles but for over $1 US. They are for people who either mix their own personal care products or buy in bulk and need reusable containers for daily use. I am pretty sure I have seen them in the herbal section of a grocery coop we have in Seattle called PCC.

A lot of personal care products (hair spray, deodorant, especially travel sizes) come in aluminum bottles, but they are expensive. I have the gal that cuts the wife's hair save some from the trash for me. Also, I found that Gillette has a travel size bottle that I am pretty sure is aluminum and costs about $1 US.

Also, asian grocery stores sometimes have alternate energy drinks or soda cans:

Here is an energy drink that comes out of Vancouver Canada. I was lucky enough to pass by while they were sampling and the guy gave me a case of his empties. They're heavy aluminum like the budweiser bottles but sized like a 5 oz tomato juice can.

Many of these products vary in availability by region. You just have to keep your eyes open.

Nice Sapporo can. That would make one large kettle stove. Someone looks very happy to have drained that 3Q can. :lol:

For those of you checking this link out ... I threw up a bunch of links where you can go to buy all kinds of aluminum bottles and tins, plus wick, silicone tubing, tooling foil for windscreens. It's in the "Stove Making Tips" forum.
