Built it for next to nothing, it's all stainless and can be built from things lying around. You can get some great usable heat from this thing on just a little fuel, the burn times range from 30mins to 44 on just a couple ounces of fuel. Warm up a can of chili, make some coffee or pine tea, maybe fry up some squirrel or turn a wet cold bad situation around without having to gather wood. It's heat and flame on command, works very very similar to a trangia stove but it's low dollar and more durable. The pot stand was cut from gutter screen and the engine or burner was made from a steel spice can that had herbs de provance in it. A little pink fiberglass insulation and some well arranged holes is all it takes.
