Has anyone come up with a good reuse/repurpose for these?
Targets for the 22?
Could make stoves out of them ;p
Jetboil puts out a tool that makes them recyclable. It pretty much pucnhes a hole in to ensure they are empty. after using it to ensure they are empty
Cut the bottom off and stick the other side (Valve) on a stick and you have a hillbilly wine glass. Lol
I was thinking heavy duty alcohol stove, but thought I would see if anyone had a cooler idea.
I have often asked the same question for propane cans. What to do? What to do?
Target and then recycle.
Throw them in a fire and stand back.
Oil candle? Punch the valve down, fill with lamp oil and insert a round wick.
I refill the propane tanks
@NevadaBlue for the win! Keep the ideas coming, I have a bunch of empties.
Neat! Now to time the duration. How many ounces of fuel in it?
Prolly enough citronella for an evening fishing foray with the kids. I can even put the plastic cap back on over the wick.
Now someone needs to figure out a way to add a glass globe.
It has to be scavenged though, maybe a coke bottle?
Little lighter fluid, a lighter, some string, and a sink of ice water to remove the bottom. Now, how to secure it to the canister?
I saw that this afternoon, stopping by the local outfitters to replace the one MSR mini groundhog I lost in November.
I think this is the best use. Just recycle.
what is the red item around the wick?
Refill them. The adapter is $2 and the butane is sold many places including asian markets.
It is a glass bead, nice tight fit to keep wick in place/adjustable. Wick is just a mop string.
I didn't think of old mop string. now I am going in the garage looking for a mop. lol
I think we all win on this lamp. I have plastic one from somewhere, about the same size and it says 115 plus hours. A screw cap would make this perfect for a Palmer furnace or any camp use for light or heat, IMO. Now I wonder about alcohol. A ‘forever’ burner.
Nope, carve one from a handy limb, you can split it 3 ways at the bottom to make it stand.
Beat me to it! Picked up an adapter on Ali express less than 2 bucks!
not a legal one.................
remove the bottom and top, invert, drill holes in the sides, and make a canister stove windscreen.....maybe?
