Fritz Krueger is a bicycle tourist who also has a passion for researching, designing and building homemade camp stoves. He has contributed several articles about Camp Stoves to Bicycle Touring 101. This particular article is part of his Zero Cost Cookset series.
Regardless of how any stove was originally made, whether it was purchased in a store or made at home from plans and ideas seen elsewhere please always remember to use caution! Flames burn and a bad burn could go a long way towards ending a bicycle touring adventure far too early!
This article modifies the windscreen built in the previous holder to add pot holding capabilities.
Sketch a triangle of pot supports onto your tracing. Refer to the left picture.
Set the wind screen on the tracing. At each point of the triangle, punch 2 holes 3/4" down from the top. Refer to the picture to the right.
Cut and bend pot supports from a wire coat hanger. Important: the straight portion of the supports must extend outside the wind screen. If a curved portion of the support rests on the wind screen, when there is weight on the support, it will flip 180 degrees and fall out.
At this point you have a functional pot holder. The next article discusses the fuel you will need for your stove.
