    If this has been posted before, I apologize.

    Simple, insulating, leveling, non-slip stove stand.

    Made from a triangle of thick board covered in non-slip plastic and with a big screw in one corner to screw it level it with fingers. I used a steel bolt and MDF board, but you could use any lightweight insulating board and a wooden/plastic screw.

    :D :D it was only a small observation......I've a thing about wing nuts at the moment sadly.

    Once you've done that I'm sure our friends across the pond would enjoy your soda bread recipe in 'cup' quantities. :)

    Ok I'll go now.....

    When I was a kid ‘short back and sides’ was the mandatory haircut for pre-teenagers. We had a boy in our school who had sticky out ears which were very noticeable after his haircuts. He was called wingnut.

    @IvanN, I always understood it was a young lady on your side who devised the cup system for measurement.

    I'll have to go look again. Mmmm

    @gieorgijewski o Well spotted.
    Still going strong all these years later.
    Posted in 2010

    I use laminate flooring wedges to level the stoves for shallow frying.

    @IvanN, the 'cup' as a standard measure as you point out probably originates this side of the pond. As a measure in recepies as volume rather than weight then it sits firmly on your side I believe.

    Fannie Farmer - Wikipedia

    I have recipie books that quoted cup amounts and had to search to find what a 'cup' measure was and found Fannie. Everything fell into place.

    I thought all the good measures we have came from over there.:content: Hogsheads, stones, cups. I feel lighter at 14 stones than 195 lbs. But I digress. Nice base!
    I have been thinking of making a light base for my Nova. I remember guys mounting the bottle and stove on a stand and leaving it assembled tied to the outside of their pack for the whole trip.

    @Simes and @IvanN

    Cup sizes were invented by Formfit in the 1930s. But that's a different kind of cup.:lol::lol:

    So a young husband was sent to the bra store by his wife, to pick up a new bra. The clerk asked, “Do you know what size she needs?” 14 1/2, was the answer. Puzzled, the clerk asked, “ 14 1/2? Did you use a tape ?” He said no, my derby! Two 7 1/4s.

    I knew I had copied that idea from someone, but couldn't remember who.
    Many thanks.

    You may recognize the windshield. I left it at Newark in 2017 and you held on to it for a year and graciously returned it to me at the 2018 meet. I still use it a lot when car camping.
