A while back I posted up a hack for a UCO Candle........converting it from candle to oil use ( done at the users own risk )
It was not the best and quite a fiddly project......but it worked.

Stumbled across this other idea and I think its a far better option and better materials to complete the project..... cleaner ....more efficient to use?

Decent burn time....... and an additional heat / light source as well......4 instead of 3 vessels.

That's a good idea and well worth trying. I made six out of paslode gas cartridges same as yours Bill. I have three left. If anyone on here would like one at their own risk I am happy to post for the cost of postage. Complete with small syringe to assist refilling.
