No matter what stove I use. Here in the mountains and the world over I guess  level campsites Are hard to come by. And a level picnic table, tailgate or place to put a high stand are hard to find as well. The problem becomes getting you stove / griddle set up to were that bacon grease or what have you to run the right direction to drain it away. Or the eggs all want to run to one side. The fix is To make a stand I could level and I wanted it to not take up much space. This is what I came up with. It has slots for a 425 and a 413 sized stove and simply slots together I tried it out and it seems to work perfectly. What do you guys think.

Should work good. Some of the places I camp I would need about 12 inches of adjustment ðŸ˜

I feel you there Toby. I am starting with 4”  long threaded rod. I may have to go longer for sure.

That's clever! 

I use tapered shims from cedar shingles.  and after getting the table close,  shim away. It wont do a lot of out of kilter, but for fine tuning seems to work.  using two shingle pieces opposed to each other and I ca change the height and still have  flat top side.

I've also used door shim stock, but that's more for point irregularities (like picnic benches with different thickness or warped boards...)

My method is very similar to Outlaws, i use tapered composite shims i found at a garage sale. They wont rot, appear very durable.

I used to use my left over levelers from my camper. One time I had a really bad campsite and did not have enough left over lol. So rocks and fire wood it was on that trip.

Nice work and a problem solved. I like that it comes apart and can be stored inside the stove.

I think that's a nice, simple, but quite useful device, Lee; takes up very little room, too.

Does it fit inside the stove?  the long rails look longer?

Unfortunately it doesn’t quit fit into the stove. It’s about a inch to long even corner to corner.  The rails are longer to allow for the threaded rod to stick up beside the stove. My plan is to build a box for 2  lanterns, 413 and my 500. I am figuring I will make room for this as well.

With my newer stove I used cable and  5 s hooks. My art skills needs alot of work but here is the idea. I used to hang it from a tree.
