1 empty 12 oz metal can of Planter's cocktail peanuts and lid

Tools required:
1 bottle opener with a sharp triangular end to punch holes
1 pliers
1 small metal file (optional)

Directions:
Directions:
Clean can and remove label.

At the top of the can (open end), use a bottle opener to punch several holes (about four) on one side of the can. On the opposite side, punch holes on the bottom of the can (closed end). This will allow for a good air flow to the fuel source.

Use the pliers to tightly pinch in the punched metal to the inside of the can stove or be sure the metal is wrapped around securely. This will keep any sharp edges from poking out. If needed, use the metal file to remove any sharp points in the stove.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
The assembly of this stove is simple and has been taught to many Scouters at the George Mason Roundtable. Additionally, it is very inexpensive and durable. It is a great first stove.
