    Impressive Homemade Stove

    I have never seen as much effort go into one as this one

    Re: Impressive Homemade Stove

    That's how I put a 3mm drill through my left pinky doing something similar to that, the stove is impressive but I've not seen anything for sale in that kind of bottle.
    I wanted to study history but there's no future in it.
    So that's what an invisible force field looks like !

    I love these kind of videos I just have not got the patience to make such precision stuff though. I did make a pop can stove last year that worked pretty well but those are so simple I did it all by eye.

    Ooh I like that, very neat. I do wonder though how sturdy these types of homemade stove are? And would I break it the first time I used it in anger?

    He must have given the Health and Safety guy the day off. That will be why something got made!

    On the subject of containers, whilst I haven't got one of these, I noticed a similar, but less intricate stove on YouTube. This had been made for a Lynx Axe deoderant can. It so happens that I have one of those in my bathroom box-o-stuff-that-didn't-work-as-the-ads-said-it-would, along with some Hai Karate, which abjectly failed to drive wimmin wild in the 70's, but I am ever hopeful, although when I opened it recently I wondered if a cat may have got at it, but I digress.

    Re: Impressive Homemade Stove

    Does anyone know what the small "hand drill" is, OR where you could get one?
    I've got a small job where I could use such a tool.......................Not a stove though!

    Look on ebay or ask in your local tool store, usually know as a finger drill or pin vice.

    I think he is just holding the drill bit in a pin vice and twisting it with his fingers, you can get them on ebay like these
