I think this may be the alcohol needed; the other stuff, mineral spirits, is something different.

Thanks, Byrd, but I've checked several of those chains around here and find an empty shelf or get a blank stare of puzzlement. Onward!

And my constitution is averse to paying for shipping on things that SOMEONE must carry nearby.

Where? I'd be interested in buying a $20 copy. Who sells this? Do you have a URL/link or a merchant name? Thanks!

REI sells the mini-Trangia, a cookset and stove, for $34. It includes a small nonstick lid/frying pan and windscreen.
