[pct-l] The Ronco " Turbo 2000 Alcohol Burner "

 Yes hikers, the Ronco 2000 turbo stove is just the thing you need. Just make 
an alcohol burner out of the Sierra Zip stove. First insert metal donut of 1 
inch less diameter into zip burner, cram fiberglass batting between donut and 
wall of the zip burner and TaDa. Douse with several ounces of Alcohol , click 
on fan, light and stand back. Should give an XGK a run for it's money. 
Anyway, the little tuna can cooker does have twice the output of a normal 
alcohol stove. As far as which is more efficient,  I would say a traingia, 
only because I pour on the fuel for a better burn  as light though.  Homemade 
is twice as light though. My version is built for heat ouput, no simmer ring. 
I use alum. dryer venting pipe for my metal donuts, super light and thin. 
Just cut with a pair of tin snips and drill a hole in each end of metal 
strip, fasten with a 5 cent nut and bolt. A two dollar piece of of drier vent 
will make 25 tuna stove donuts. ( total time to make a burner 15 minutes, and 
another 10 minutes to make a combo pot stand, windscreen) Tin snips cost 10 
dollars at any hardware store.
