Photo: Capillary action alcohol stove burning. The fluid wicks up between the thin gap in the soda can wick. The hot metal vaporizes the alcohol, which then burns well. This will burn like this for 5 minutes on 6ml of denatured alcohol and then burn out in a matter of seconds.Photo: All packed up. Everything fits into a regular Altoids tin.Photo: This is in liquid fuel mode. The burner sits inside the tin which has the bolt stand offs to hold the pot. The mesh grate isn't used in this form.Photo: Wood burning mode. Small sticks can be placed between the pot stand posts. The grate allows air to get under the fire for better burning.Photo: The pot stand is sized to work with metal water bottles.
