Nice little stoves. Wish I could understand the language.

They are nice, aren't they :D Made me think of computer chips, how everything goes ubber tiny in our modern world. That is one tiny coil stove, probably the worlds smallest at this point. It's so cute :mrgreen:

Thanks for sharing that find Sudden. They sure do have Character

I may hold the title for smallest low pressure burner. I made one with a tealite container. The fiberglass wick in the center is the primer wick.

Would a short wire suspending the pot from above count as a "potstand"? :roll:

I guess you have to start with the definition of a "stove". Otherwise, a thimble full of alcohol could take the title :).

As long as that thimble can boil 16oz of water with 1/2oz..why not.I was playing with a miller lite lid(fits inside a tealite cup..so it is smaller..and some stainless sieve wire for a potstand.Unfortunately the cap's indents around the perimeter are not liquid tight(rats!).I've got another the same size from a different can..should be liquid-tight.heh..heh..heh.. :twisted:
