    Looks nice, good work. But be aware of the following:

    Brass is a very good heath conductor. Your pot-stand will conduct a lot of heath down to the tank. Also the filler tube will conduct heath downwards. When the fuel in the tank reaches 80°C it will vaporise and the wick-burner will suddenly change into a flame-thrower. Don't underestimate the danger of alcohol-vapours!

    You may try outdoors, how long it takes, to bring the fuel to vaporise in the tank. If there is few fuel in the tank it will happen earlier than with a full tank. The vapour may even ignite in the tank and shoot out wick and fuel. I would not use this stove!

    @Radler thank you, i've tried that before write about the burner here. tank temperature is not over +50 celsium degs. potstand/tank contact points is very small. it will be useful at the winter when temperature in my workshop is low. and yes, you would not use this stove because you not have it. :mrgreen:
    anytime i can do another potstand of stainless steel if it needs.

    I can see Radler's point. Safety first as always. It is a very attractive stove and I wish you the best of luck with it. Let us know how it works in the winter time.
