Yes, single loop and it boiled 2 cups in 8 min. One problem is the 2 holes are drilled in the wrong location to be able to put a cork or rubber stopper in the loop to prevent alcohol from oozing out when the body of the stove gets warm from my hands. So, I think the oozing will stop if I loosen the fuel port screw. And so back to the drawing board :lol: Got to make another one :roll: I'll continue to test this one for amount of water boiled with 3.5 oz. of fuel. There will be other tests also with different windscreen height and closeness to stove to check for over heating. I'll use the flame concentrator also to see how it works.

I think I got a more blue flame with the coil burner..at our balmy 50-60 degrees... ;) ..sitting on the concrete floor of the garage...Of course I have a steel tank though... :roll:
I'll try all these things to see how it effects the flame pattern. How much does your steel stove weigh without concentrator and plug?

When my wife goes shopping I'll do some indoor tests :lol:

:lol: The incident is clear in my mind of the day she walked in the kitchen door seconds after an alcohol stove went radical on me :DBfire: On second thougth, I had better not do my tests in the kitchen ;) The sun should warm up my greenhouse enough for it to be comfortable out there. I'm going to put together another stove today with the holes in the coil in the right place so I can plug them. I like the fact that the stove body can hold 3 to 4 ounces of fuel. As I play around with this design I might come up with some cool ideas. 8-) I can go larger container using the Foster or Conquistador cans for the stove body.

I made a new one today. Different coil diameter and new base on body of stove.

Weight of stove is now 1.6 ounce as you see it on the left.

I'll fire it up tomorrow to see how it burns.

The second one has a leak under the fill port washer and that caused the flame to be small. It was too cold in the garage to locate another washer, tests are postponed :( I need to get a spade thumb screw with a shoulder to get a good seal. Air pressure is coming up the threads on the fuel port screw.

Thank you :)

Looks like spring has sprung out you way that enables you to be mowing already.
