Alright today on Repairs101 Im going to show you how to make your own camp stove for burning biomass fuels out of a few old cans and a couple of dollars worth of hardware.

So I collected some tools to cut up a bunch of cans Id collected and a five to four inch duct reducer.

I drew up a clock-face pattern and started cutting C shaped vents into the shorter coffee can.

I placed holes at twelve, four and eight oclock for mounting pins.  

Then I cut some V notches in the reducer to act as retainer tabs for the cage wire grate.

I shaped the cage wire into three individual grates.

I dropped the bolts in loosely, fit a washer over the lip and torqued them down.

Then it was D vents in the combustion chamber slash diffuser and a few Vs on top.

Next I cut down a soup can for the fire tunnel and a tomato paste can for the exhaust.

Then I used a little acetone to clean that green paint off.




Then I just had to cut everything to fit.

I put three sheet metal screws in to hold the combustion chamber/diffuser firm and then I cut them off so that I wouldnt get cut myself if I reached inside.

So then I matched up the position of the mounting pins and drilled them out.

Then I proceeded to fit the fire tunnel and the exhaust pipe.

The pins mount through the corresponding holes and the fire tunnel connects the cooktop lid to the combustion chamber / diffuser.

Biomass fuels are things like wood, charcoal, plant waste and dung.
