Altoids Survival Stove

Do you want to learn how to make a compact alcohol based Altoids survival stove.  The video below shows one method that you can use to make one of these stoves. 

I am not recommending the design in this video, it's provided for reference material on how to make one of these stoves for your own.  There are several other compact alcohol stove (sometimes known as "penny stoves") designs that are available around the web.  An alternative design is available on the Instructables site.

Disclaimer: All information in the video and listed on this website is strictly for educational purposes only.  Use this information at your own risk.

Required Materials:
  • Altoids Tin
  • Fiberglass insulation
    • Note: This is recommended in the video, but I am going to look for an alternative. (Not recommended)
  • Qtips
  • JB Weld Epoxy
  • (4) "post and cap" screws
  • Screen (can use gutter covering)
  • Sand paper
