    Hi, in a recent post I showed photos of a pan-holder I made for Heavy Duty stoves:

    https://classiccampstoves.com/threads/pan-holder-for-large-classic-stoves.12100/

    I have now made a windshield, which should give both the stove and pan shelter from the almost constant winds we experience in the North of Scotland.

    The windshield was inspired by DeLorean and contructed from a stainless steel bin housing from the local recycling centre:

    DeLorean-3.jpg

    DeLorean-4.jpg

    DeLorean-5.jpg


    In these two final shots I have included a British Monitor No.96 stove, then a Primus No.96 boxed stove to give an idea of scale:

    DeLorean-7.jpg

    The bin-housing was split and the raw edge folded to pevent shredded fingers. I reckon the gap is sufficient to manage the stove and allow it to breath, whilst still giving sufficient shelter from the wind.

    I am sure it is just a coincidence but DeLorean have just announced a re-launch of their iconic 1970s/80s auto:

    O.K. I'll go out and dive for some crabs while you go out for beer. Meet you back at your place in an hour. :lol:

    Looks like a superb crab fest is in order! Weren't the early Delorians built in Ireland?

    That's magnificent, George, you just need to instal a flux capacitor, get the whole thing up to 88 mph and you'll get Back to the Future in style.

    Hi John, you've given me an idea..
    Now if I use the pan-holder assembly as an armature, and wind three symmetrical coaxial coils, fed from synchronised phased-pulse units we should be in business..
    All I need now is a good Press Officer.
    Watch this space.
    Best Regards,
    George.

    George,

    Don't go to all that trouble. Just order one from an online auto parts store.

    Elegant solution, George. Will the new DeLorians be able to boil crabs?

    What a great idea, the big pan holder really fixes the problem with large pans, I really like the stainless steel windshield. Well done

    Cheers
