Hi Guys, I've been wanting a Well Built, light weight, High Efficiency , Multi Fuel stove that I can take with me just about anywhere I go. After doing a little research and checking out other designs and stoves on the internet and magazines , I came up with this little stove. I went to the Auto Parts Store ( O'Reilly Auto Parts ) and purchased a 3 in. Exhaust Pipe Coupler for $2.85 . I then took some measurements and drilled some 1/8 holes and some 3/8 in holes. Then I added crowns to the top. ( this is very very important to do or your stove will not work right. After I cleaned up all the burs and sanded and filed everything down good I gave my little stove 2 coats of High Heat Stove Paint ( which I had left over from another project ) . Then I just let it dry and it's ready for use . You can burn many different types of fuel in this little stove , some examples are pine cones, wood chips, little pieces of tree limbs, charcoal, horse or cow dung etc. Basically it will burn most anything organic. All the heat and flames are focused straight upward to the bottom of your pan or coffee pot , so this little stove will heat your food or drinks fast. It measures about 3 1/4 in. wide by 4 in. tall and has nice thick walls to it. You can put a carabineer on it and you can hook it to your backpack , clip it to your belt , or hang it from a D-Ring on your vest or carry it just about anywhere. It will fit nicely inside a saddle bag or motorcycle trunk to. For the money this is about the cheapest ( but best built ) little stove you can get your hands on, plus it was a lot of fun to make and when I use it I will have the satisfaction knowing that I am cooking on a stove I made. Hope you enjoy my little stove project. Stove made from a 3 in. exhaust pipe coupler , drilled out and painted with High Heat Stove Paint. Stove made from a 3 in. exhaust pipe coupler.
