SOLD: almost for sale
tell ya what. I have been making alk stoves kinda new design of mine. I started looking at wicky thingies after bacteriology 101 a zillion yrs ago. the lamps are used to sterilize the metal loops used in bacti plating. now I have a whole bunch of these stoves, they all work and some are works of art. Honest I have not copied fron Tinny! I made my first wicky thingy 2 yrs ago! but have just reciently found some suitable al. containers. For the first 10 or so hangers that send me an address I will send a stove of my choice. If you like send me a 5$ bill. and keep the stove. If you don't like it ,don't send the 5$ bill and keep the stove anyway. (what am I going to do with a dozen stoves? :confused:,
I also have 3 boxes packed with all sorts of surplus light wgt. camping stuff, a stove or two, some cuben pieces, one or two has a hammock of sorts in it stuff sacks most I don't remember what. send an address and it is yours, first 3 .. I had packed them to send whem Klass had his send a box deal whitch fell thru! I don't want any thing for these, if you want to send the famous 5$ bill fine ,if not no problem. I request you pay this forward and send a box of you own funky surplus gear to some one! I have done this befor and it iis great fun! gnome

I made one myself once, using a on old baby food jar. I think it went something like; poked a hole in the middle of the lid just big enough to pull a wick through, pull a long wick through, fill it with alcohol, wait a second, drop wick into alcohol, screw lid back on and voila...
yeah I knew thier must be a name for them things! Did some medical missionary work in Nicaragua where we used them, the "Nicos" call em somthing in Espanol! the trick with alk stoves, keep them lite, keep them safe, and fairly rugged!/gnome
