good job dude, i have been messing with these of late, im waiting for bits to make a pressurised copper coil version, when done it should boil a litre in about 3-4 mins...;)

keep up the good work mate..

regards.

thats very cool, the one im making has 1 loop with 2 coils, if you know what i mean????? but the advantage is its being modified to store meths inside it with no leaking holes, this will reduce fuel usage from evaporation and leaks from the jet hole, i might make the jet ajustable too....

it will all fit inside a baked bean tin which will be the pot stand and wind shield...
