    Fred - are you sure about this? I've just had a thorough look at the site, and it does read as though they come with the firebox.. (i.e. the main description mentions them, and no reference to accessories). I'd be very concerned if I ordered one, as per what they state on the site, and it came without the legs (every photo also includes the legs).

    I think it's more likely that anyone who doesn't have the legs has an older model?

    correct - the older models came without legs, but the holes for them are in the side plates.

    You can buy the legs seperate (I just did ;) ) for about £12 shipped - arrived within a week

    drop Derek an email at derek@woodlandedge.com :)

    no connection with the seller, just a happy customer :D

    And does the design warp badly? its justy that I have a firebox based on the original design and over time it warps so badly that I find it quite difficult to get the thing aligned so it slots together easily.....

    Graham S is the man to ask - though it's fairly heavy guage steel - how thick was yours?

    1.6mm steel.

    The smaller version is of titanium which does not warp. But...at a cost.

    The woodland edge one is 1.5mm stainless around the sides, and 2mm for the top and bottom plates, again stainless.

    weighs 1.8Kg without the legs

    I've used my stove on numberous occasions and not just for ten minutes at a time and have had NO problem with the metal warping at all.

    Mind you its now pretty black, so am very grateful of the bag it comes with! lol.
     
  9. :confused: Just received this from Woodlandedge,
    I asked if the legs, chimney, grill and flat cooking plate were included.

    "Yes everything, including a custom made pull top Firebox bag.

    No pots or pans though !!

    Hope this helps you, If you need any further information, please just ask".

    hope this clears things up.

    Gentlefolk, I'll try and find out what the bobby is regarding a group buy on this. As WE is a small firm I'd imagine they'll need a minimum amount to be run off in order to realise any discount.

    From what I understand the stove has had a few modifications from the original with thicker steel being used in places and legs etc. now coming with the kit so the price is going to be higher than the original buy.

    £61.70 delivered was a wee bit more than I was expecting, however:

    1) they appear to be excellent quality and now come with all the bits, &
    2) I expect the design will have been tweaked a little here and there, improving it .

    On that basis, count me in for one please! :) :) :)

    Thanks Mick

    I would take one but it doesn't look very strong and its very small especially for the price!
    I could probably get the same heat and usefulness out of my £2 Stainless steel cutlery strainer homemade hobo stove.
    So can someone tell me why they are so good, especially if I will be paying over £60.
