How To / SCHO-KA-KOLA spirit stove

I have made this and tested for several times. So far, I have not had any problem or accidents.  So I am introducing this on this blog. But this does not mean that making and use of this stove is safe. If you do make or use this stove, do it on your own risk. I take no responsibility if something happens.   (This is internet, so I need to state this… )

So, Here is how to make SCHO-KA-KOLA spirit stove step-by-step.
What you need>
SCHO-KA-KOLA tin can
Empty tin can larger in diameter than SCHO-KA-KOLA tin can.  Some soup can will do.
Glass wool or ceramic wool
Wire hanger.
Stove gasket
Scissors to cut tin
Can opener
Some plier to cut and bend weir
Some marker.

1: place SCHO-KA-KOLA tin on glass wool and mark the outline of the tin.
2: cut out the glass wool and fit it in to SCHO-KA-KOLA tin. The thickness of glass wool needs to be same as the depth of the tin.

3: cut out bottom of the empty tin can.
4:  place SCHO-KA-KOLA tin on cut out bottom of the empty tin can, and then mark the outline of the tin.
5: cut off and shape it according to the marked outline.
6: cut 8 slits around. The width of the slits is same as thickness of the Stove gasket

7: take Stove gasket and start placing it in to slits. First Clock-wise then counter clock-wise. Do this 2 rounds, you get 2 lines of wick

8: pop this inner rid in to SCHO-KA-KOLA tin.
9: Zigzag bend the wire and place it on top. You will probably need 25 to 30 cm of wire for this.
And you should have one look like this.

 Now, you just need to pour spirit in and light it!

  1. Very interesting little MYOG stove. What's the weight of it?

  2. I agree with Hendrik, a very interesting design. I like it. Any feedback on the output of the stove with regards to boil times? I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this one. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Hi, I did not notice the comments.. sorry about that.
    I have not done the boil time test and so on, because I usually do not car much, as long as it works for my need. but I would be interesting to know, so will do that and make new post about it.
    Thank you for the interest!
