HOW TO – Make a backpacking stove from aluminum flashing

Ryno shows how to make a pretty nice backpacking stove from aluminum flashing, I’ve also rounded up a few DIY stoves to check out too… Ryno writes – “I have been experimenting with homemade stove designs for quite a while, everything from cat-food cans to altoids tins to pepsi cans to sobe cans. I wanted to come up with a design that fixed what I thought were shortfalls that the tin-can designs didn’t allow me to do. Namely, I wanted everything to fit snugly inside my cook pot, including stove, pot stand, windscreen and fuel (for at least two nights). The overall design of the double walled pepsi can stove worked for me, but I wanted it to be a bit bigger to hold my fuel bottel (I use a 4 oz nalgene squeeze bottle for most weekend trips). So… I set about to come up with something… went through many iterations with many problems (Durability, fuel leaks, etc) and came up with this.”Link.
