Quick Cheap Pocket Stove To Make
First published 10/06/2005
This stove costs virtually nothing to make and needs no special skill.
1 old shoe polish tin
1 Pr scissors
1 old bit of cardboard
Step 1. Cut your old bit of cardboard ‘across the grain’ into strips about 2mm thicker than the rim of the shoe polish tin and roll it into a spiral until you have a disc of cardboard the same size as the tin, then place the whole lot in the tin.
Then light your candle and drip the hot wax all over the cardboard until it’s really soaked.
Make sure that there is plenty of wax in the tin, but not so much as to cover the top of the cardboard, like this.
When this is done simply light your stove and cook away !!
To extinguish the cooker, simply drop the lid over the top and allow to cool.
