Tripod Pot Stand

Postby WanderingStovie » Fri Jan 02, 2015 5:43 pm

Here is my latest pot stand. It stores flat, with easy assembly and disassembly. It has 3 small rubber suction cups as feet. It is built from 1/8" brass tube and 0.047" music wire.

Looks good, but does it wobble when you put a pot of 2 cups of water on it?

I like the feet :D

There's a little wobble but not much. The music wire is thin, but it is doubled inside the tubes. The little bit of wobble is probably mostly due to flexing at the three corners. Friction between the wires and tubes tends to damp vibrations.

The pot in the picture has two cups of water in it.

So, it feels secure enough for the safety of your precious water?

Is it a tight squeeze to fit in your pot, any room for other stuff?

I would not use it on a rocking picnic table, but that is good advice for other setups. Otherwise, I would be willing to use it on a multi-day hike.

It has to be disassembled to fit in the pot. I made the horizontal sections as long as I could for stability, while still fitting across the inside diameter of the pot.

I was busy with R&D of my CFS. Now that I have a stove to test, I can try the stand. The CFS works OK in snow and ice, but since it melted the snow it was resting on, I want to try a test on dry wood. I will look for a suitable testing site and wait for low wind and no precipitation.

Appears to be an unhappy child at that house since Daddy stole his darts for his toy gun.. :lol:
Now you need to find three small polished equal height rocks to stick them to.. :roll: or a piece of metal plate or aluminum..
