Making alcohol stove for backpacking

I have found a new technique to assemble soda can alcohol stoves that
requires no glue, no tape and no crimping. If you have ever tried to make a
soda can alcohol stove you know the biggest, and really only problem, is
trying to get the two halfs to fit together. Usually the answer is to
crinkle or cut the one half so it jams inside the other half. This requires
crimping , tape or some kind of glue to hold it together because all the one
half wants to do is pop out of the other. I have a process to actually press
and enlarge the one can half so it's innner diameter will fit over the other
cans outer diameter. So tight , no sealent, crimping , or glue are needed to
hold them together. These stoves are true works of art and excellent
craftsmanship.

Anyone interested in finding out how a correctly made soada can alcohol
stove will perform can find more information , a picture, and oportunity to
purchase Here:
