There are over 22 steps taken to prepare and assemble this alcohol stove using special tools, jigs, and assembly techniques I have developed to ensure consistantancy, quality and performance. After making hundreds of these alcohol stoves, I have settled on this design as the best combination for fuel economy and performance. I have made over 5,000 of the Tin Man stove to date!
Don’t be fooled by the size and construction materials. These alcohol stoves are very rugged. This alcohol stove has no moving parts to wear out or break down. The construction process involves using high temperature epoxy to seal the pressure chamber. There are no slits on the side to weaken the alcohol stove and cause potential leaks like you will find on other designs. The top and bottom pieces are sealed with 600 degree epoxy and are safety taped. I have never had a leak with one of these alcohol stoves.
The pepsi can alcohol stove is designed for denatured alcohol only. This is a readily available fuel that can be found in any hardware or paint store and at many outfitters like those along the Appalachian Trail. Rubbing alcohol works poorly and is not recommended because it contains 30% water and just will not perform. Due to the location of the burn holes you can place your pot directly on the alcohol stove – without snuffing out the flame – thus eliminating the need fro a pot stand.
