I'm going through this stuff like crazy. Does anyone know of a source besides Wal-Mart and pharmacies that have it in quarts?


  • Have you tried the MAPP torch yet?

    I've gotta ask......what is it? :blink:
  • My Egg lighter. A MAPP gas torch. Works great and last a long time. Burns hotter than butane and lights inverted.

    Yes, and I don't really like it. I burned out the tip some how and I like the "pour it on, light it, forget it" aspect of the alcohol.

    I'm beginning to think about a weed burner though....

    Have you checked medical supply stores?
  • FSUScotsmanFSUScotsman Posts: 754
    Yes, they only carry pints!! I was really surprised.
  • Quit sampling the bottles in the bus. :laugh:

    Contact a chemical supply store or a hobby store that handles chemistry items.

    You will probably be able to get it in gallons or even 5 gal buckets.

    Using alcohol is more expensive than using MAPP or oil/paper towel.

    I do like using alcohol though. On the mini the alcohol is a bit explosive.

    What is a hoppy store????????

    I don't mind that it's a bit more expensive, I just want to save some money over the quarts.

    :laugh: if my fingers connected with my brain it would have read hobby.

    You can get denatured alcohol from home supply stores in quart and 1 gallon cans. It has additives to make you sick if you decide to drink it. Same as 90% alcohol.

    OH!!! That's good to know!!! Sounds like a trip to Lowe's is in order!!!
  • I buy alcohol stove fuel at a outdoor store (Gander Mountain). Couple bucks a quart. Less than a home store. I don’t know if the additives a different for stove fuel then solvents.
