    Also try looking at this

    http://http://www.jureystudio.com/pennystove/

    Sometimes need to prime it, but the pressurised action gives a really good hot jet, Can boil Pint of water in about 5-8 mins with just 20ml of alcohol.

    I use a 5p coin rather than a penny, Ifound the UK penny a little to heavy for pressure regulation. The heavier the coin, the bigger the gas jets though.

    Thats fairly similar to the one i made With the idea of using a penny. :P

    This is similar to the one is made with a coin ontop.

    I really like your brew kit leather sack. I need something like that too cause i am using a plastic bag which is neither looking good nor a very "green" solution.

    I like hobo stoves but i found that a woodgas burning stoves works even better than a normal hobo stove. The kit i am using is a DIY woodgas hobo stove with a DIY can stove i altered a little bit (inspired by the best stove builder i know of, Tinny from Minibull Design).
    At first i wanted to buy a Bushbuddy or Bushcooker and just try the DIY woodgas thing before to see if it fits my needs but when i finaly build one myself it worked so good i don't even need to spend 100 bucks for the same thing just a little bit more shiny.

    I have made a few of these and they are brilliant wee stoves and easy to make if your on a budget, I didn't like using hexy blocks or the gel jobbies you get for the crusader cooking unit so I made a stove out of a red bull tin that fits nicely with the cooking unit.
    Learn a little, Enjoy a lot.

    That's great to hear! I've borrowed the Bushbuddy and can say that I loved it, it is a efficient and light. Although I couldn't bring myself to pay that much.

    I do love the idea of making your own gasification stove and that is something I'll have to try, looks like you've done a good job there Howard. I would love to see a shot of each stove fire'd up if you've got one?
