    Ammo can stove

    This is my wood stove i built from a 50 cal ammo can. I built it to heat a 6x8 elevated hunting blind/ Bug out shelter.
    Parts include

    1- 50 cal ammo can $15.00
    3- steel door hinges $7.00 (2 for door and 1 for the latch)
    1- 4ft piece of 2 inch auto exhaust pipe $6.00
    1- female exhaust coupling $3.00
    1- Can of high heat engine enamel $6.00
    Other ramdom things i had laying around that i could use
    I chose the ammo can for a base because it would fit well in my blind and give a flat surface to cook on as well.

    Awesome! Did you remove the rubber gasket from the ammo can?

    Great idea. I just happen to have some 3/16 plate steel laying around.

    cool, how is the airflow on your stove?

    I have a paint can stove running a 4" chimney and the up draft is so strong, it has no heat until I close the door and set the air vents on the door.
