In all my free time I’ve managed to make another alcohol stove. I decided to try one made from a Cat Food can. If you’ve looked at penny can stoves before, you’ve probably come across the plans for the Super Cat stove as well. They are just as easy to make and just as cheap!
I decided to try one out because I didn’t like how fragile the aluminum penny can stoves are. I’m always afraid that I’ll crush the penny can stove, and the cat food can eliminates this problem. The can also acts as a pot stand which will lead to a lighter kit overall. In fact, the weight difference between the penny can stove and the cat stove is 3 grams. Not a lot, but if you’re counting grams, then every one counts.
If you’re interested in building your own Super Cat stove here is a link to the directions. I’ll be trying it out tomorrow night and I’ll let you know how it goes. In the meantime here are some pics! Let me know what kind of stove you are using too!
