[QUOTE=ownst1100;8788732]They're not really a one off anymore as i've made 13 of these cooking platforms. They setup in less than 1 minute and fold down to fit the lid of 1 Jesse Bag.

You are one seriously talented guy. Nice shop by the way!

LÄMPLIG Trivet

$6.99 US



Product dimensions
Length: 20 " 50 cm
Width: 11 " 28 cm
Height: 1 " 2 cm

Thinking it may work out well for a camp grate and it's cheap enough! Maybe buy 2; take one and cut it in half crosswise to create the legs, then put the cut pieces under the un-cut piece where the cross braces meet each other.



Maybe this would work for a rear rack material.
Very cool and a great price. Did it look like the welds would hold up to cooking on it over a fire?

Welds? I didn't see any welds!

Seriously, the pieces fit tightly and if it's welded they may spot weld the whole thing at once. Cutting one apart would reveal the construction. The actual use of this product is to put hot pots and pans on it, so I would guess a wood/charcoal fire wouldn't ruin it. I would put some tiny holes in each tube to bleed off pressure and not rely on the connection points have any gaps.

If I get back up there in a few weeks, I may just go ahead and pick a couple of them up and try it out.

Takes less than a minute to set up.



Other uses are on the tailgate of the Land Cruiser when 4 wheeling, and it's small and light enough to fit into a backpack for mountaineering.

Thanks ownst1100 for the inspiration!

In a hurry I make a grill bottom from aluminum foil, cover with the same, and cook. Lots of butter or fat keeps the contents from burning. But your grill makes sense and is small and portable. Might look into this, or make my own. Great thinking!

Come to think of it, the Ford Motor Company used to make small grills inside the engine compartments of model A's and T;s back when roads were dirt and you traveled for days. Someone could make a grill for the motor of air cooled bikes? You could heat/cook food while you rode?

Well, I gotta put this one to the test first, take it on a coupla trips.
After that, we'll see!

Seriously, it's close to what I need. I definately want to keep it simple.

Thanks!

MSR Whisperlite International (Run on 87 octane) with windshield and GSI Halulite cookware.

Ive found that the aluminum windshield for the Whisperlite is more than sufficient for wind coverage. I see a lot of the post have very large windscreens, but I guess coming from hiking/backpacking before I got into motorcycling, I was more concerned about weight.
