1. Due to the amount of SPAM from foreign countries lately, we have made the decision to manually approve all new members. While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    This is the prototype . I prefer to just coat it in vegetable oil so it seasons with use

    You can fold it flat

    or take it to bits (3 bolts) - Don't worry the legs and sides that join are marked with the same number of dots (either 1, 2 or 3) - It will have new bolts. I just had these to hand :9:

    and it weighs in at..................about 550grams (1lb 1/4 in old money) and its not even titanium :32:

    though it has a 17cm side length

    Been thinking along similar lines myself recently.
    I was toying with a rectangular idea made from similar base material (flat 1/8" x 1/2" wide strap) with a frame that 'slots' together & then also has legs that slot in to support it. The side rails I was thinking of also cutting some smaller slots in to allow stainless rods to be placed for grilling upon.
    The idea was that the whole contraption could be easilly assembled/disassembled via that 'slotting' arrangement so it could be easilly storred in a leather pouch/roll. Just pull the vairous pieces of flat strap & grill rods out of the pouch & 'slot' the lot together.

    Hmmm, have to look into that one soon I think.

    Thought I would throw mine in the mix

    This was my project for bush basic improvised metal cooking impliment. I will have to file down the edges some more, but I think it will work pretty well. Each arm measures 8" and the legs are 4". I made it all out of one piece of 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" angle steel. I like WK's idea about seasoning it with veggie oil. I used 3/4" hex bolts with a 1/4" shank, double flat washers and a lock behind the wingnut. 7 bolts total.
