A while back I wanted to make a very solid stand for my pop can stoves. It worked good but the sweet spot was above the top of the stand. It worked great for slowly cooking stuff, but I wanted something that used the full potential of the stoves. Like this one that boils water faster than my trangia A few photos of Version 1, I made it out of 1mm aluminium but it went soft so remade it out of mild steel. That's really when I found out it was too short. It would boil water, but much slower that it should of done. Really there is much better. The way the flames came out the air holes meant it dose cook stuff nice and slowly. So today I made the Version 2. Made a template, didn't quite follow it, but came in handy. Loving my new angle grinder! JUST fit in my belt grinder to smooth the edges. I wanted to make sure there was plenty of air holes, Good thing about mild steel, it wont go soft with heat. Drilled all at 5mm at first. Then Drilled them all to 10mm. Next I used a 13mm Drill bit to counter sink both sides of every hole. Unsurprisingly it bent with all the drilling, but I just used the vise to straighten it all out again. I've seen people hammer stuff flat. A vise is easier and less effort. Done. I don't have a stove to hand, but there it is with a can in it.
