Trying to find out who made the first pop can stove.

My first contact with one came when I was posting on www.survival.com "Hoodlums Forum" Alan Halcon was the first person I knew of that made one and that was back in 2005.

Anyone know who was the "first" to design a side jet pop can stove?

Thank you for your help.

The first homemade alky stove I heard about was Flyin' Brian Robinson's (http://royrobinson.homestead.com/Cat_Stove.html). There are now several variations of the cat food stove. They are technically not soda can stoves though.

Soda can stoves made using double walls are just imitations of Trangia spirit burners (http://www.trangia.se/english/2913.trangia_stoves.html), which Adam used to make hot apple cider for Eve.

Flyin Bryan's stove was my inspiration to make one piece stoves.

It looks like Adam might have been the first to make one....wonder who made the first Trangia??? The guy who tempted Eve?

Do a read of the thread at Survival.com that shows a conversation with Alan Halcon and someone else you might know.

Today I'll send Alan an email and ask where his inspiration came from.

I talked with Wolf 23000 (over on WhiteBlaze) a few years back and he said he was using alcohol stoves like that for years before he started seeing them on the internet. You might try contacting him and find out what type of stove he used and when he started using them.

Ok, thank you...I'll contact him and see if he can recall what inspired him to make one like that.

I had the impression that Alan Halcon may have been the 1st until the day Tinny appeared with his version.

Have not seen oops56 for few years, any word on how he's doin? He may have been one of the first pop can stove makers.

I don't recall if Wolf was using a pop can, his stove may have been a simple bowl of alcohol style burner. Have you tried contacting Zen stoves, she had a large database of information on stoves.

Woolf said he was using a tuna can. I had to ask him if it was a side jet or just an open can. I asked him that this AM.

I read Zen's info on pop can stoves but no info there on when or who made the first.

I'll see if I have tinny's email address and ask him if he can recall anything on where he got the idea from.

Thanks for your help.

The fact of the matter is that it took alien intelligence to make the first soda can stove. I'm pretty sure it was Mork from Ork.

He may have been the first guy to make a pipe from a beer can; does that count?

The G. LaMar Kirby Stove may have been the first.
