I got the same results within seconds on both runs using 15 ml of heet.
Which was boil time of two cups of room temp water was 5 minutes,run time was 6 minutes.


Yes, it's pumpin a lot of heat out. Good for a 12cm Imusa also.

Yes I have done several test now at different heights and etc.
I have found that the bottom piece cut roughly 1 1/4 inches and the top piece cut 2 1/4 inches seems to burn pretty even and hot.
Seems durable but not indestructible.
Weight on the several models I made were running at 9 grams.HOLY COW LIGHT!!!
I did notice on A couple burns I made pressure holes using 1/16 bit and only one hole.
On them I noticed it would pulse and spark out mildly.
I then drilled A larger diameter pressure hole and put one on opposite side of the stove and it seemed to fix the problem and burned just fine.

With your type of stove it's a good idea to always test using a windscreen to give thermal feedback to the stove to make sure it behaves well. Also to have a pot of water on it for thermal feedback to see how the stove reacts. Are you using denatured alcohol or HEET?

I am using HEET in yellow bottle Dan.
I did most of my tests from inside my tiny home.
I did notice the few that I did under my awning outside was when I was experiencing the pulsing and spatter.

I built my tiny home from the wheels up ..
It is only 100 square feet but more than enough for me and the pooch.
It is run off solar power.
The pictures really give it no justice but at least an idea.

Very nice DIY project. My wife is interested in getting a "Canned Ham" type vintage trailer to restore for replacing out Eureka 6 person tent. She was on the computer yesterday (all day) watching youtube videos on how to do the restorations.

We'll be going down to central Mississippi end of sept to be campground hosts for the winter/spring and will be looking for one to restore. If I can find an old Airstream or equivalent I'll jump on that type.
