Well, a big thanks to everyone who gave me pointers. Mission accomplished!
I ditched the ally bending idea and just made two support bars and a platform that would sit on them. The platform has rivets in it to stop the burner shifting as well as fitting into holes I drilled in the supports for stability: i would not want the burner to tip hot alcohol all over the floor!!
Here are some pics:
The complete assembly, boiling the kettle, the individual parts, where the bars go, and finally how all my stove stuff packs down!
Also, using this set up, I can also lower the height further meaning the frying pan could be used. I also found out that the FS could make a sturdy windshield as a cannister and gas stove can easily fit inside it!!
Complete kit weighs just over 1kg (without any pots or pans
)!! So quite heavy, but very easy to pack.
Adventure: it's an experience, not a style!
(so ride what you like, but ride it somewhere new!)
