    We use inside a´╗┐ tent:

    A trangia stove
    A Gas fire
    A Petrol light – honest – all at the same time – and live!!

    It is all about ventilation.

    who would use that in a tent? the shield is for wind and the pan support is´╗┐ used to keep the pan above the fire… also if you do use it in a tent you die from the built up gases

    This looks a lot like a White Box Stove (which I used, without fail, for 2,200 miles). However, you don’t have to burn alcohol around the outside. Is that to warm up the alcohol (the point of´╗┐ evaporation) on the inside? Can you not just light the alcohol inside the stove?

    Now I know why Trangia sell there burner with a shield and pan support. Certainly would not like that thing in a small tent without some external protection.

    what ´╗┐ kinda alcohol do you use to burn ?
    i would love to make this for camping

    I did go ahead and use a rat tail file, a small one to make 2 small half circle depressions in the top of the stove. That´╗┐ should keep the stove from building up too much pressure under the pan.

    I think these´╗┐ are some of the fastest burning stoves I have used and the simplest to make. I like the Fiberglass wick around the outside then you don’t need the primer tray.

    You will have to do another video of the ones that you make.
