    A while back i asked for dimensions of the MHSP object being that i could make a case to which end i bought some copper.

    I did try straitening it out but really quite a hard job actually it`s 16gauge and the heat from the small gas cylinder is not enough i have got a small blow lamp which might do the trick but would also need to make some formers as i dont have a proper bender would really liked to have made a copper cube

    Now the dilemma is it`s so beautifully made i feel it would be a shame to drill holes in it drilling SS might also be a problem. i thought just keep the billy can as a storage tin and try and make (or buy) some sort of wire holder for the pots. What are your thoughts that`s my dilemma.

    I would keep the billy as a storage tin. If you keep the stove in a good, zip-seal plastic bag you can keep the inside of the billy clean and use it as a pot.

    You could make a tripod similar to this one I made for a Primus 96, except yours would have to stand on the ground.

    Two very good ideas I think the tripod might suite my limited skills
    I think a visit to b & q might be in order the windbreak and burner belongs to a 17 b so I will just use them.
    Regarding a heat shield never really thought of that I thought that piece was only to hold it in position for travelling you can always tell an novice

    Hi @henry8
    Been wondering about the zebra pots for some time. Thanks to your pictures I now know I should look for the 14cm version.
    I’m curious to know how the plastic clips for the bail arm hold up to the heat in repeated use though.
    Regards
    John

    They don't, but many people have made metal ones. Here's a vid. There may be better ones.
