low temp stove use

I love the stove. Works great. I turned a round hardwood dowel on a lathe slightly smaller than the can. A groove was added for the can lip to sit in so that the can wall was supported directly by the dowel during drilling. By exerting only slight pressure from the drill, I was able to "finesse" my holes into the can. The edges were extremely smooth. Little additional clean-up was needed. Nice, professional look.

In repsonse to earlier comments as to cold weather use, I have tested the stove at below 20 degrees F with alcohol at same outside ambient temp. It took a few seconds to light but then worked nicely.

Thanks for making the design public!!
