Your local pet store may have some. Ask for a chinchilla pumice block.

Rabbits and chinchillas like to chew on stuff so they sell blocks of pumice for them to chew on.

Prototype done now on a half a pumice but it will boil on it well only hold 1/4 oz alcohol but it will boil water on a thin pot about 12 oz water. The on in picture i cut off just 3/8 in. to fit can put holes a round top bottom plus need to raise pumice to burn right i put two layers window screen under it the in side can just little short plus i did not put v grove at top so that way there is a second can for pot holder. Now 1/2 oz fuel that's how mush it will hold 4-1/2 min. hot water 5 min. hard boil run time 8 min.

Bought the 3 muti-color ones at the pet store, the other one at K-mart.

These that you see do not soak up enough fuel to make an alcohol stove.

Tried it, been there, no workee :bawling:

I ventured I gained :biggrin:

I see you had better luck oops. Keep up the good work :biggrin:
