    Looking for ideas for a pot stand for a Primus 71, Optimus 80 and Sea 123's.
    I have 2 sigh cook sets but several stoves without them. Had looked into the Transit style but everyone warns of overheating.

    I'm looking for ideas for DIY ideas for a stove stand for the slightly taller stoves
    Stainless steel for durability and light weight is not so important in this case. Any ideas on this would be most helpful.

    Look for cylindrical stainless steel cutlery holders (the ones with holes).

    It's not home made, and I don't know if it would meet your requirements, but looks to be a cool setup for a single burner stove. I know I've seen an evaluation somewhere, but cannot find it. It goes up to 19.5cm in height per the description, but doesn't state how low.

    I assume that you mean Sigg and Trangia.
    What purpose do you have in mind that those do not work?

    I have 2 sigg sets but I have other stoves Optimus 80's and primus 71's. I thought about the tragia sets but everyone says they won't work so I thought about trying something else

    Can you give more details? If you already have 2 SIGG kits it is hard to imagine your needs that the SIGG kits will not suffice.
    Real food is cooked in them just fine.

    You can stack bricks around the stove and put cast iron pans on them.
    A wire frame can be made to support any number of pot/pans that you desire.
    The imagination can run wild.

    There is a pot kit that went with the Primus 71E.

    Glad you could join us Ed.
    The Sigg is a great cooking kit.

    I have 2 complete sigg sets. I am asking because I have several of the primus 71 and Optimus 80 stoves that do NOT have a stand for so basically they are incomplete I am asking in hopes that someone else has ideas on what to use for pot stands for these stoves I know there are ALOT of these stoves out there without stands and are rendered unusable without something to go with them

    @snwcmpr is right, what kind of cooking?

    You've kinda said "I have a small block Chevrolet engine, what vehicle should I put it in?"

    The answer would obviously depend on what your needs and wants are.

    Back to stoves, are you looking for a base camp stove where you'll be supporting a Dutch oven and weight won't matter? Are you backpacking and need light weight and wind protection? Either of these can count as real camp cooking.

    It is true that those present greater problems. I have two or three 123s that I've used often, but come to think of it I never use my 71s and 80s....

    Svea 123 in cutlery can.JPG
    Here you go -- stainless cutlery container from Wally World with a Svea 123 inside it. The height is not ideal; you can either cut down the cutlery container to the correct height, or put a spacer of some kind (can of beans?) under the stove. I would also cut some narrow rectangular holes under the rim to reduce heat buildup on the stove, and a big rectangular hole on one side for the same reason and to allow for easy use of the valve. Running a self-pressurizing stove in a nearly closed container will cause the stove to overheat and blow out the safety release valve.

    I am also concerned by your "everyone says they won't work" comment regarding Trangia and (I infer) Sigg cook sets. There are many of us on this site who have been cooking "real food" in the backcountry on these for decades. (Not long ago, my daughter fixed us spaghetti with mizithra cheese and kalamata olives at 12,000 feet in the Sigg set. Real food. We've taken a Trangia 25 set out for a week, and ate like royalty.)

    If your cooking is being done while car camping, then yes, a Coleman or Camp Chef suitcase stove or a high pressure propane stove or a campfire and a big cast iron pan will do a better job. In the backcountry, unless you're trying to be Norman Clyde, you make do with lighter-weight gear and steaks sized to fit in the pan you have.

    Hi,

    I used the smaller stainless cutlery container from Ikea for making a pot stand. This pot stand can also be used as hobo.
    On the pics you can see a Juwel 33, but I used also a Primus 71, Radius 42, Other Juwels and similar small tin stoves.

    Ciao, Bastian
