I posted this in the wrong forum I think so I will try again..
I made my first penny stove and it seemed to come out ok, but I can't get it to jet. It still worked as a nice center burner stove (took 2 cups 6 min to rolling boil) and it didn't look like there was a leak in the side - just didn't jet.
After the boil I put the flame out and poured out the leftover fuel. I then had the bright idea to burn off the remaining fuel in the stove (I've since seen the caution on Jurey's site to NOT light it unless penny and jets were covered.) Still alive and what's more - the thing then jetted right away before burning out completely. Why? And what can I do to fix it so it does that when it's full? Any help appreciated.
