    Here's a fun and easy little stove. It's made from this bottle from Walmart (or wherever):

    Right Guard Bottle

    To make it I made a couple cuts to take a center section out, popped out the spray mechanism, drilled a few side holes, then inverted the top and inserted it into the base.

    Here's a picture of the flame pattern and the stove from a couple diff't perspectives:

    Looking at the inside

    If I was going to do it again, I'd definitely make it a bit smaller, and I'd add a few more holes. Right now there are 16.

    Casey,

    certainly looks interesting!
    Did you have any crazy gas expulsion when you first punctured the can?
    What sort of performance are you getting out of it?
    By the looks of it you are only using it as a pressurised side burner?

    Hey Adam,

    Yeah, only a pressurized side burner. And I'm actually not sure of how well it performs just yet. The only thing I've used it for so far is making a bunch of char cloth. I'll see if I can't get some specs on it tomorrow. I think it might actually have a problem with over heating…we'll see.

    As for emptying the can, I wasn't brave enough to just puncture the thing so I sat with it for several long minutes while holding the button down…all the while apologizing to mother earth!

    Yeah, I wouldnt be keen on puncturing a full can either-I can imagine that would be rather dangerous with an extreme amount of pressure release from a small hole, and or a flammably explosive situation!

    You do have an idea though, using old deoderant cans and the like. I might see if I still have one or two at home. The cans are different to yours, but…

    that tapered top looks like it would have made it easier to insert, no?
