Blaster Modification

This is what I have:

I really like the idea of a foldable set up like Partner Steel or even more so the woodland power stove.

The bayou classic is mostly a stand for the burner, which comes off with one 1/4" bolt. Looking exactly like this (if you remove the hose):


What I want to do is make a new stand to hold the old burner. A stand that is foldable or breaks down in some way to make it much easier to stow/haul/pack.

I have a few ideas but am not really happy with any of the them.

My question is: Any ideas on how to best accomplish this feat?

(Master)Blasters

Sorry for the noob question but what is all the hype about blasters? I have been camping/boating for a number of years and have not seen anyone with one of these. Other than pure btu's how are they better/worse than another normal stove?

Thanks!

Because they kick ass. They boil water fast and are a great way too run large pots, strange large woks and other exciting devices. I use mine more than my stoves. Not just on the river but car camping and at home.

I love mine and wouldn't trade it for the cash I paid for it ...

but if you are insistent in reinventing the wheel, maybe this would be a good option ...

I'm guessing you could make a stand that just holds the burner in this thing. Its stainless, cheap, and it folds up ... (note: might be small dimensions however)
