Its not really gear talk. Its a homemade candle i'm testing the concept --- how much heat can it generate for how long? I figure a rafter or kayaker might use on a river trip after the burn bans in place (assuming candles are allowed)

Besides ... I stopped sniffing glue about 8 months ago

We have done the same thing but bigger, we used a new paint can and filled it with rolled cardboard, and then filled it with melted wax. It worked pretty good, for those nights that we did not break out the firepans.

Been there done that, was not overly impressed with heat output or light.

Made some that look just like yours out of lantern wick. They work great! One thing I did is use some wire to keep the wick upright when all the wax turns to liquid. They will burn all the wax and last for a few hours. I have used them for winter mountaineering. They throw a lot of heat and light. Great survival tool. They don't get destroyed by water and will melt a lot of snow for drinking water. I used old tuna cans but if you use a larger can you could use additional wicks for more heat.
