Hansen's penny stove mod on 03/03/2008 22:27:02 MST Print View

I tinkered with a penny stove last night. I used a Hansen's Energy drink can and a Campbell's vegetable juice can for the stove. The jets were on the inside with the exception of one. I left that jet to point out to help to keep the stove body hot. It worked well at 35F.Hansen's Energy drink stove.

It boiled 2 cups with an unknown quantity of denatured alcohol in a heinie pot. I need to work on a better hardware cloth stand and add a priming wick.
I'll test it tomorrow with the Titan kettle.
Sorry about the poor focus, but the jet for warming is on the right.

Greg, nice work. I'm curious, you said one of the videos was the LAST time you'd use a hardware cloth pot support. So... now what are you using?

And do you think the priming pan is a must? The tabs and all make it too poke-y and fussy for my clean-lines-and-smooth-packing taste.

Thank you, clever tinkerers, for making my newbie MYO ventures easier!

I continue to use 1/2" hardware cloth.

I've put some large water filled kitchen pots on this type of stand and I've never had it collapse. Even with side burner stoves that heated the top half of the stand to a glowing orange color.

I used the sideburner to help burn off the galvanized coating.

I cut up a cooling baking sheet from 8Walmart...
$6 and plenty strong!

and the priming tray just helps it prime very very quickly :)
