Hobo Rocket Stove

Yes I know there have been 1001 hobo stoves showcased here but this one is mine. :p

This is made from a 1lb coffee can and a cheap soup can that doesn't have a ring around the bottom. The soup can is inserted into the coffee can by cutting a hole in it with a pair of snips or dremel. I made the hole in the coffee can slightly smaller then bent the cut out part in with a piece of wood. This will ensure a better fit for the soup can.

The soup can is divided in two by a piece of another can. This gives you a feed chamber and an air chamber. There are no air holes cut along the bottom of the coffee can just the top. This allows for a more complete draft from the air chamber.

The only thing I don't like about it is the fact that it consumes wood really fast and the feed chamber is inadequate as a fuel supply and I end up dropping fuel in from the top.

Once the stove is operational it has no problem burning green wood as a fuel.
