It has been years since I made an Alcohol Stove. Last month I promised a Shop Manger from a Mitsubishi workshop when he requested if I could make him one. He was interested in such stove because of light weight and fuel efficient. Base on my calculation, the estimated fuel cost to boil 500ml of water for 10 mins would cost NT3.

Pressurized Jet Alcohol Stove
If you prefer a polish stove. you can remove the paint with a sand paper like I did
to polish the surface, I used a 3M Microfine pad
you will need a high temp gasket glue to apply the internal surface to prevent leaks
Here are some of my finished product. I use a safety pin for the side wall jet holes. The filling port, I used a nail to puncture a hole. Do note that the filling port hole cannot be too large. It might cause an explosion when use.

You can purchase this Alcohol from any pharmacy store. It sell at NT50 for 500ml of 75% alcohol
To complete the stove you will need a bottle with markings. The reason is that you do not wish to over fill the stove. I have tested 30ml of alcohol and stove took around 10 plus minutes to be completely burn out. This will give you sufficient time to boil 500ml of water.
CiT have since made a new design Alcohol Stove base on Pressurize System. View here for more INFO
