A pocket-sized heater in an Altoids tin.
I’ve noticed that an Altoids tin can be used to make many a small project, but I have not found many Altoids-tin heaters. So I gave it a try, and to make your own just follow this project.
Mark the scrap metal, or the brackets, to the appropriate width and height for the candle and the tin.
Now use the Dremel to cut the metal, and grind any rough edges.
For an extra test you can bend a makeshift holder out of any leftover metal and heat a small amount of water over the flame.
