    I believe I saw titanium ones on aliexpress. I haven't seen the square fuel blocks up here. Just round one and they look smaller.

    Done. Took a few trips to the hardware store to acquire a large stainless steel washer, E clip, cable, and many swagges.

    I started with a Primus classic trail stove. Then I added an old aluminum pot as the hanging frame. A center hole drilled to match the diameter of the stove's stem. There is a handy notch in the steam that took a E-clip.

    Drilled a few holes so that you could light the stove through. Then fished cables to hang. The cables are set up as 2 loops that are carabinered together. This is how Tommy Caldwell had his set up on the Dawn Wall. Getting the pot level was the most difficult part of the project. I made the cable on the shorter side for limited space hanging. You can enchain more biners to get more length if needed.

    That one side hole was my first attempt at a flame access hole. Here is my my brother testing the unit in is apartment. I made this unit to fit his GSI soloist cooking pot. I was concerned about the fold down handle interfering, but it looks like it was made for it.
