I'm looking to get hold of an iron tri pod for campfire cooking. Can anyone suggest a uk supplier please. Ideally looking for the type offered by GSI outdoors but theyre the other side of the pond...

Also wanted is an enamel boiler for coffee tea etc.

Ive drawn a total blank in finding this kit...

Regards
Spencer

Squidders is the man to ask ,i think he got some made up a while back and was selling them on here.
Pretty substantial looking piece of kit IIRC ,looked like it would last a lifetime or two.

Try Cabela's for the Dutch oven's.
My mate got one from them a few years ago and he thinks it's great kit.

I can sort out tripods... I have been meaning to get my rear in gear anyway so give me a few days and I'll let you know... PM me to remind me. You're probably looking at about £20 - £25 + postage.

I use one of those fencing pins as a lamp holder for my Colman. I noticed some workmen left behind when they left a site near my house. I spotted it every morning for a month then pounced! Hey, I’m a crook what can you do! I was purely concerned for the well being of motorcyclists, children and small animals who might have impaled themselves upon it. It works really well though.

I’m sure you could acquire three more honestly, and then perhaps weld a short chain between them to link them together.

Try your nearest farm supplies shop. After hoping to stumble upon a fence pin I eventually parted with £3 for one from my local shop. As long as you can bang it in the ground I think it has some advantages over a tripod - its cheap/ free, there's only one so its less bulky and you can get to your pot from any angle. I've got one set up in the wood where I'm working and its perfectly capable of supporting a gallon kettle. I have a short length of chain and a couple of butchers hooks so I can vary the cooking height. It does the job- respect to makers of tripods though !!

The tripod woody was showing us at the spring meet looked brilliant and it was really light. Has he said when these things will be on sale? :confused:

Rob, most of the kit Woody had on show was under developement, but I would think there will be more news on it when he has set up completely :)
