Hey guys, I just bought my first alcohol stove. Lit it up, put a pot on it and quickly discovered I need a pot stand.  Any suggestions?

I know the trangia has it's own pot stand, windscreen system. But it seems bulky and cumbersome.

You could make one out of hardware cloth. I've also seen some made out of wire that is bent into sort of a V shape on top and a trippod on the bottom. Check out some of the alky stove websites and get some other ideas.

Alcohol stoves need a wind screen.  I used a wind screen from my MSR white gas stove. I took two aluminum gutter nail tent stakes and drove them through the wind screen at the right height, one stake pinning the two ends of the screen together. It worked great and easily lasted for the whole AT. Scroll down half way on this page to see it.

How high is the "right" height for windscreen vents?

I have made a couple out of metal coat hanger like material.  Bend the wire into a " [ " shape.  Make 2.  Make the legs tall enough to clear your stove.  I then wired 2 legs (from opposite supports) together with green craft wire, so that they could open up and support my pot.  Works pretty well, not very heavy.  If you can't picture it drop me a line an I will take a pic and send it to you.

The Clikstand is indeed a good one.   I like that it's a) stable b) packs pretty compactly so I can fit a lot in my pot and c) provides pretty good wind screening.  


It's also really sturdy.


I've got a review of the Clikstand up on my blog if anyone is interested.
