Details on "Gear Top" Stove

I have designed a couple of stoves that are easy to build and perform exceptionally well.  I have not seen either of these designs anywhere else.  One I call a Gear Top stove because the top looks like a gear. The other one, I call a China Hat Stove.  These are the only two stoves that I attempt to show people how to build.  Like other web sites I have to put in a disclaimer:  If you build either of these stoves you do so at your own risk.  Alcohol is flammable and dangerous if used incorrectly.  No warranty for functionality is expressed or implied.


The Gear Top Stove is very light, fast burning, and the only tools you need to build it are scissors. You don't need a hole punch, box cutter, J-B Weld, aluminum tape, drill, etc...ONLY SCISSORS and two Pepsi cans!  The heat output of this stove is as good or better than the Cat Stove and is the lightest stove I am aware of that you can build in a standard Pepsi can size and still have the intense heat output.  It weighs 1/3 that of the Cat Stove.  Overall this is a very good stove.
