Stove stand arrived today.
It's slightly too small for my bulin stove with the legs fully extended but I can just leave them in a bit. At some point I will find a metal tin lid about an inch wider and drill 3 holes to locate the legs.

It's a shame there is nowhere convenient to store the legs... perfect.

I do like the simplicity of that design and your solution too Gerry. I had thought of doing the same thing years ago with a MSR Trillium base but couldn't justify the cost, still can't!

yes mate
I have the 25,27 and mini plus lots of different spirit burners
I have been using them for donkeys but the banks of the Tidal Trent are the reason I bought the leveling device in 2016
a blooming site different to any pit I have ever fished

Getting it all level is easy to do with the Trangia as the burner (fuel or gas) is built into and as one with the pan stand and the wind shield surround. The burner will always be perpendicular to the pan or kettle base. If the ground is uneven a twig or two under the base in the correct position sorts it.

As a Trangia owner Iím sure you already know this OG. If there was any benefit to one of these adjustable pot stands with a Trangia then they would be available as part of the kit. Those Swedeís ainít daft and they certainly donít only cook on level ground.

the point of these its to get your stove level on uneven /sloping ground a Trangia would benefit in some cases

Re the windshield. Can't see me needing more than 2cm for levelling, 2cm for Steady Rig base and my stove is 9cm high, around 13cm total, coincidentally same height as that stove base. I already use a half height shield at 15 cm (off memory), I do have a standard 1 somewhere too but prefer not to use it (wind).

Looks good but you're going to need a big windshield. I'll stick with my Trangia 25. Does it all.

Sorry, only just seen your Q.

My 2 stoves have small triangular feet with holes in them, I think I'm going to drill the base and put some pegs in so they lock the feet into place. My stoves are tri leg and share the same 120 deg angle as the supports on the steady rig. Both my stoves are also 17cm circ on the feet so fit nicely. Only problem is 1 of them (Vega) has the gas pipe supported on the feet so it means I have to use the steady rigs legs at almost full height, not a problem as still quite low. I'm thinking of putting a pot support over the stove for added stability, the combo should add stability and I'm again wondering about chopping the pot stand legs and drilling the stand to take the legs, modding them as needed or just taking the legs off.

All overkill, probably not needed but its cheap as chips, keeping the grey matter ticking over and I like to fettle

A pot stand like this, 16x17cm so matches stove base nicely.

had one of these for a few years I went on ebay where you can buy round galvanised sheet metal disc`s of your specs ( I asked for a hole to be cut in the centre)
bought 2 one I fitted with ba nuts and bolts so my Primus gravity stove legs drop on the other one is big so I can put any size stove on used it all the time on the sloping banks of the Trent very handy bit of kit and a steal at that price !!

When I found out they existed I managed to speak with him on the phone. He said they cost too much in parts and time to make so he couldn't sell them cheap enough.
He said they were unavailable in this planetary system, but said if anywhere might have one it could be Johnson Ross. Five minutes later I got the last one!
I ended up selling it when I swit he'd to gas for what it cost me about 15 years later.

I think the screw thread was just using parts that were already made up, it's useless for the stove stand.
It did originally have little black plastic balls on the end of the stainless for feet.

Pity Steve Neville doesn't make them anymore.

The advantage to them was the screw thread in the centre for a bankstick - great for a brew when you were 20 yards from the bank in your chest waders in the reeds.

I tried to buy one almost 20 years ago from him. Spoke to him on the phone about it and he said he no longer had the templates he used to make them as they had been lost in a fire. As the demand for them was low he had no plans to re-introduce them.
