Postby oops56 » Thu Jan 24, 2008 8:40 pm

I like to see if i can make a small tin can stove to burn just on one clothespin the snap one or the 2 leg one with a Vaseline or petroleum jelly starter and just boil or hot for coffee 8 or 10 oz. only. i am going to start soon as it warms up a bit. ;)

It's a good idea Oops. Use the bigger one piece clothespin. Split it length wise and then break into 1" long pieces. Use one of the small snack size tuna cans and pack it tightly and use a cotton gun cleaning cloth soaked with petroliuem jelly to get an even burn started on top of the fuel pile. Burn it from the top. :)

I love the idea of clothespin stove. Sounds like a great way to use something around the house...

That would be until the other half went to hang out the laundry and half her clothes pins were missing, then it would be back to my dog house...... :lol:
