Zelph, I forgot all about your question re alcohol and the stove gasket material. Sorry!

My limited tests confirm your findings as well. I sure would like to get my hands on some of the glue/epoxy they use for that stuff.

Is it called a border bomb because it looks similar to a pipe bomb? LOL! :mrgreen:

Basicly a Sterno stove.
you tilt open the base
Place in your can of sterno
or Magic heat, and lite.
close the base, and cook.
you can use a used Sterno
or magic heat , by placing cotton, and saturate with alcohol
as an open top.
or drill holes around the outside of the top, and not the cap
spill alcohol on the top and lite.
also as a Triox or heat tab, by turning the cap over and
place it on the top of the Sterno or Magic Heat can.

I'll have to try the sterno can when I get back in town. Thanks for the good tip. :)
