need MYOG stove idea for aluminum pint on 05/29/2011 18:20:45 MDT Print View

Here it is on Sunday, and I have my right hand firmly wrapped around a cold Miller Lite in a 16-ounce aluminum bottle. Now, we all experiment with alcohol burners of different sizes and shapes. I know I have several. But this 16-ounce aluminum bottle seems like it should be made into something, and an alcohol burner is the only thing I can think of.

This aluminum is thin-wall stuff, not thick-wall, so it should be easy to cut or punch.

For those who do not indulge, this is about 7 inches tall, with a diameter of about 2.5 inches, and it has the bottom ring ridge like a Coke can.

Any suggestions?

BTW I still have mine in storage for future projects if you need any more. They are washed and clean of course. ;-)

Party On,

Newton
