Next flatten the base of one of the cans and fill with chalk before pushing them together, (a small tab may need cutting out of the top can to help with fitting). Drill a fill hole in the top center of the top can and plug with a bolt. Then drill 6 evenly spaced burn holes around the edge of the top can. Fill with Mentholated spirits and place in a priming pan with a little more of the mentholated spirits, our pan was made from a piece of tin foil. Place under pot stand and light spirits in primer pan to get the burner up to heat and working. We had boiling water in 8 minutes.SmileTongue outInnocent
