My stove has these metal arms added to it. Looks like they have been there for a while. Any thoughts on what they were used for? They tuck up under the burner.20190811_152735-725x967.jpg 20190811_152745-725x967.jpg 20190811_152742-600x800.jpg 

I have no idea what I am doing.

Just a guess of course but - maybe they were used to hold turners/spatula's, spoons, coffee cups, or a pot lid when needed?

Sure, they don't like wind however If it held a wind screen (in the shape of a "C") it would need at least a third arm to hold it up or it would dip. Besides those arms would just be overkill for a light weight windscreen.

I thought windshield but as Chuck said it would need a third support at least
Then I wondered if the windshield had a slot to fit and sit over the valve stem?

If they swivel out some more, then the valve would act as a third leg.

I am thinking windshield with a notch to sit on the mixing chamber that would be the third support, that's how I would have done it.

Hmm good call everyone!! Heat drum or windshield arms seem very likely. I guess I may have to fab something up to go with it. 

I have no idea what I am doing.
