That triangular can opener is how be opened our beer cans in the 50’s. They were often called “church keys”.

Hello Dave! That’s what I’d call a 2 for one deal, eat the contents, make a free stove, free fuel can be had everywhere. I see no reason to pay high dollar for something when u can make it, the end results r the same. I will be making one, and a pouch to put it n to keep other stuff clean of suit. I like the simple things n life! Thank u sooo much for sharing !!!

Back in my day this was called a Hobo stove. Nice to see it again for This generation.

When you go to Walmart again, check the bulk stuff aisle, they actually have bigger cans of Chef Boyardi ravioli for around $10....bigger than the juice cans....

i used to make chimney starters for my grills and smokers that was made from a coffee can that looked familiar to these. nice video thank you

A 1950’s Boy Scout Field Manual was the first place I saw this type of stove made from Cans. They refer to it as a Hobo Stove. It used 3 or 4 cans stacking them on top of each other to cook a entire meal together. I like all the versions I have seen and the refinement made.

Thank you for talking me through every step, so I can understand how to make one, too. I’ve never did this DIY before and I appreciate your patient instructions.

You've shown some improvements on the 'hobo stoves' I have tried over decades; now I'll try tuning that type with the extra pot support at the top (longest chimney effect) for slow burning (Australian) hardwood (perhaps with a very different, non-crossed, shape to maximize the length of stick which can be added when the large pot is cooking. A very low-capital, possibly high-yield technology! Thanks for the thoughts.

Nice stove. Very compact.
I wonder if there is any mileage combining this with the style of stove shown on the "Fourdogstoveco" Channel?

I've used your directions to make a couple of these stoves! Love it because I am not a power tool girl. I want to make one with a #10 can such as a large coffee can. Have you done this? I'm looking for a good fit for the inner can.

Nicely done design and demo! Far better than those ridiculous $100 Solo stoves that have very little capacity...

Explained so well. Love the ease of making this.

Hey Dave, great video, great stove. I would say its a faster boiler then the version I make from tom juc cans and hands down better than any of the numerous designs of rocket stoves I've buildt. You make a very good point on the hot bottom, I mean one should always be careful with where the stove is placed, but the cooler bottom is a plus when your stopping for a quick lunch or hot tea. I think this is your best video yet, But I'm really into stoves LOL! Glad I got to see this before I drop off the planet today. Can't wait to get back to the rockies to make one, no fires where I'm working. And a big congratulations on breaking 1k subscribers Thanks so much for this one.

Interesting, I remember the Girl Scouts, coffee can stove. Way better design improvements. Thanks

ummm...that looks more like a gasifier stove than a rocket stove...but what ever you want to call it, I like the simplicity of the build...AND..it seems to work pretty good too. ;-)
Thanks for sharing.

I’m so inspired watching this video I can hardly wait to make a tin can stove just for the heck of it! Using the humble can opener is brilliant - way more possible to do if the power is out after an earthquake or other disaster.
Your demonstration is easy to follow, well organized and crystal clear. Thank you for sharing this awesome survival trick!

I've been looking for an easy way to build one of those, thanks for sharing. That's awesome. Very helpful information.
