It’s one of those skill that will come in mighty helpful during SHTF and any prepper can benefit to learn how to build a swedish jet stove. Watch the video below to guide you through the simple steps to build one.
How To Build A Swedish Jet Stove
A Swedish Fire Torch, if you have the tools to make it, is one of the most efficient types of fire you can make.
It channels the heat up through the “stack” which escapes out the top of the torch and can serve as an awesome cooking platform.
It requires smaller types of fuel, so you do not have to spend a ton of time chopping and cutting wood.
It is also very hard to detect, easy to maintain and even easier to put out.
The key is possessing the tools to construct it; the guy in the video uses a chainsaw, but you can make one just as effectively with an axe or a machete.
The basic requirements for a Swedish Fire Torch are a solid and rounded piece of log, something to cut it with and for safety’s sake, something to bind it once you have made your cuts.
After that, you can feed it with small amounts of fuel and if maintained properly, it will burn for a very long time; if your wood is green, it can be used over and over.
The benefits of a Swedish Fire Torch are that it burns very efficiently and channels all the heat from your fire to a specific location at the top of your log, it is easy to control and very easy to put out.
As always, if you elect to use a chainsaw to make your Swedish Fire Torch, adhere to safety precautions.
