RR, do you think having the windscreen on the stove while burning alcohol would help keep it lit? or having a deflector plate on it like oops shows in his video?

Negative! I have to wonder if the only reason that mine burned for minute was that there may have been coleman fuel in the coil that had to burn off before the Heet came out.


i suspect that the jet size would have to be changed to make it run on alcohol.

yep.
i never did get one working so that i was happy with it. a couple worked not bad but were still a bit too flame-unstable for my liking.

I will conduct a second test using D/A tomorrow after work. Maybe it will react differently than the Heet(actually, it was a different gasline antifreeze) I will try some of the clearenced product we got @WALLYWORLD ;)

I got the burner in the mail today. It sure do have a tiny hole /jet. Maybe tomorrow I can fire it up. :mrgreen:

I got lots of tree cutting to do tomorrow and other stuff while the weather is favorable.

oops said the wick should be cotton and not extend past the coiled area that the flame touches. Fiberglass will solidify and clog the tube. Even if the cotton chars it will still work. Oops knows like only the shadow knows ;)

I've got soft copper tubing and was coiling some up to try and make one...or something like it.Does the tubing have a continuous wick running through it?I was thinking of an aluminum bottle for fuel storage with the copper coil coming out..slight pressure if needed to burn alcohol..
Just an idea...

no the wick does not go all the round the coil just up to the first bend close need 2 one on each end leave it long so stay in alcohol and so as to lay flat like a L

I measured the clean-out wire that's stored in the fill cap for the stove. It measures .030

I know all about the curiosity thing :D
