 2 Aluminium drinks cans.
Tools Needed
 1 Sharp Blade / Knife

1

You will need two empty aluminium drinks cans.

2

Using a sharp blade, cut the bottom off the two cans, this can be done by supporting the blade at the correct height and rotating the can around the blade. Using scissors or a blade, cut out a section of the can 1cm taller than the bottom piece you cut.

3

The middle section is used as an inner wall to the stove and must be taped into a cylinder shape the same diameter as the base of the can. Cut a pair of small "v" channels in the bottom to allow fuel to pass into the stove.

4

Carefully remove the inner bottom section of the can with a knife, this is best done in multiple light passes until the inner section falls away.

5

Assemble the two sections of cans together carefully. The bottom can be stretched out a little with a full drinks can, this can help putting the two together.

6

A pin or small nail can be used to make the alcohol jets in the top of the can.

7

Add a little denatured alcohol (meths, rod sprit) to half fill the stove, and light the alcohol in the central hole. It will take a miniut to prime, once the jets are alit the stove is ready to cook on!
