Postby oops56 » Sun Mar 16, 2008 2:43 am

This is a tomato juice can stove. I got me right and left mix up.The left stove a little weak on flame but did the job so make new 1/8 shorter should be better.The water temp. was 62F the left one 3/4 oz. fuel boil 5 min. burn time 6-1/2 min. The right one 1/2 oz. fuel boil 3min. 10 sec. min. burn 4 min. The time be off a little cause i put pots on then lit prime wick but on do not start timer tell prime burnt off so its close one total burn of fuel

oops56,

I really like tthe stoves! :)

The party tin lid is clever!

The flames from the stove on the right are more yellow. Are the jets bigger on that stove?

Cheers!
