I have been reading on some of the Prep-er pages, Survival, and yes even some of the Zombie Apocalypse
Step 1: To begin with you will need a marker, some JB Weld, and some thing to measure with.
Step 2: Start with a mark at the height you want the stove to be. I chose 2 1/2 inches and placed a mark there with the marker.
Step 3: The next cut will be for the inside of the stove, this needs to start right where the bottle becomes straight coming down from the neck. It is important to make sure this is exactly at that point.
Step :5: The blade will leave the edges rough so they will have to be smoothed out.
Step 7: Now mix up a small batch of JB Weld , I used JB Weld instead of epoxy because it has a higher heat rating. Mix until well blended then apply a small amount around the out side edge of the flue.
Step 8: Next place the flue into the base, ensure that the flue is seated in the bottom of the base. It helped me to turn upside down and press with my hand ,then tap to set with a hammer and a block of wood.
Step 9: Turn upside down and weight for 24 hours. I turn it upside down to insure that as it sets up the weld will flow toward the top and create a good seal. This will also keep it from flowing down to where in the next step we will drill the jet holes.
Step 10: Now after waiting the 24 hour time to set, we will drill the jets. I used a 1/16th drill bit to drill these with. I drilled these holes 1 inch down from the top. I drilled 18 hole evenly around the stove.
I used a piece of masking tape to lay out the holes around the bottle. Ok you probably noticed that it is a different color can. Well I did not want to wait the 24 hrs for it to set up before making this post, so I used the original stove I made that is in the video at the end. kind of like the cooks on TV put the dish in the top oven and pull the finished one out of the bottom.
That is the way I made it and it works pretty good.
The stove also put out a lot of heat to the sides , it would be practical for winter scenario in that it would provide heat for yourself as well as cook your food.
