My metalworking tools and skills are pretty limited. Skills being the more limited of the two. I'm a hack working in my basement.

Just about everything I've ever made has been fab'd with no more than hand drills, hack saws, files, and a bench vice.

It gets the job done, but can never come close to the artistry that DarenN is capable of.

I'm going to have to make a mental note to stop reading your posts. Each one makes me more and more jealous.

All kidding aside, beautiful and innovative pot stands. The middle stand, the one with the bent wires really stands out to me as showing good engineering. There's a term we use in engineering (I'm decidedly NOT a mechanical engineer, btw) is, Elegance. That terms means that the design functions perfectly in all conditions, isn't burdened with things of no value, and above all it's simple. Your pot stands are Elegant.

:lol:
i built that little stove last winter and it was my #1 stove all through the summer. about 30 nights worth of camping. kayaking on the west coast. that pic was taken at the end of the summer. you can see the green on the copper fuel line from exposure to salt air.

you can see the many iterations it went through in this thread:

Daren does impeachable work. I have not seen the gas Trangia stove. Does it use the regular cannisters(msr, coleman)?

MSR, Primus, Snowpeak canisters, yes. the Coleman canisters are a bit different and would need an adapter. i wouldn't bother.

I was referring to the Coleman Peak1 cannisters, not the propane monster ones. :lol:

i'll have to look that one up. i've never seen a Peak 1 canister up here.

just for a test, i made a valve adapter and ran my DIY canister stove off of a one pound propane bottle. it worked just fine.

Are you going to use the 1 pounders from this day forward. Easy to carry on your water pack :lol:
