I've also got an old travel umbrella that looks like it may have some interesting parts to cannibalize. Anyone ever done that?

She's the one that threw it out. It's been in the garage for a while (I'm a packrat. shhhhh.)

The grill is rectangular in shape, just a normal toaster oven grill. I'd like to see if I can contort it to use as a pot stand or grill. Maybe even rig it up as a suspended system?


Do the liberation liborator, your cleared for go. We look forward to the end product. :)

That's a great idea, plus they come in different lengths. Use a crimping tool they use for solderless terminals for a good crimp that will hold tight. Thanks for your imput, good one.

Jason, I made a triangular one for a grease pot. Got the idea from a web page last year. If that was your design, thanks, worked great and got some good comments on the trail. :lol:

Trangia alcohol burner:

Sir Zelph's Starlite burner:

packed size 4 1/4" round. hieght depends on burner carried. as little as two inches.

there's a pailfull of other burners that can work with this stand. pretty much any burner that works best with a potstand with an overall height of 1 1/2" to 3 1/2".

something i've been meaning to mention.
the welded wire mesh i use is stainless steel.
as a long-time metal worker and welder i'm very careful about heating anything coated with a galvanizing process. the zinc used in galvanizing burns at quite a low temp and creates a gas called fosgene (sp?). it's a nerve toxin and was used in making the trench gases used in WW1. i've gotten too much (from welding galvanized sheet) a time or two over the years. it's not enjoyable!!
