I am a bit confused.  Are you supposed to pour kerosene or diesel liquid
fuel into the can containing the steel wool, or just burn the steel wool by
itself?  I can't see that working so well without adding some liquid
petroleum fuel.  Steel wool comes in coarse to very fine (#0000) strand
diameter.  What kind is to be used here?  I can think that #0000 would make
a pretty good wick.
