Zelph,

I think this is what Skids used for the wicking. Ace Hardware has it. I think he used 3/8". Not sure, ask him.

Thanks for the link Survivor Dave. I looked thru the list of related items on the left hand side of screen. There I found what looks to be the right one. Self adhesive backing:

Close, fellas.

I must've posted the wrong size earlier. The actual packaging looks like this:

11/16" wide.

I would have to drink a case of Heineken before I could conceivably think of building a pot and stove. I need to steal the ideas and credit from you, Skids, and SGT Rock before I could put it up for sale. :D :D :D

It's ok to use our ideas, just give credits :D

And save us the cans if you do them a case at a time :D

The cross support design for the pot is good and I like it. Here are more photos of it being used:

Image On the right hand side is a pop can with selfcontained pot stand and fiberglass wick material in a couple of its sections to absorb and slow release of fuel.
