I'm trying to make an alcohol stove out of pop cans. I've followed this youtube video exactly: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2p9b...eature=related
minus the pot stand.
But the thing won't light. I'm using the Heet for fuel like the video says, I'm preheating it, but most of the time it won't light and when it does it's only for half a second and then it goes out.
Any ideas? Or better designs? I really don't want to buy one and I really like the idea of making it making it myself especially since I am on a very tight budget.
Any ideas, suggestions, comments, anything! will be greatly appreciated.
