Heights of Short and Long Leg PowerFlamer Stoves? Are the legs (bend) done properly?

Customer (PF13L160_Stabilizers)

Are the legs done properly ? Is the completed height 31”. I thought there were short legs for tabletop operation and extensions to use on the floor. Are the places where the longer legs attach considered the short table legs?


The short leg stove uses the short legs from the base plate, about 1.5 inches.  The long legs have bend such that they can spread out wider to increase stove stability.  Entire long leg stove should be about 30~32 inches in height.   This is to consider a wok depth of 4 inches, such that the wok handle height is at 36 inches.   We consider 36 inches as the average height for people’s elbow, comfortably lifting the wok with elbow in horizontal position.  

For how the long legs spread, please see the “Usage Examples” section of the stabilizer product   For how to spread the long legs, please see “How to achieve stable long legs for PowerFlamer propane 160 stoves?” at

Not stable during tossing

Customer (PF13L160): 

Thanks for the guide. I noticed that the legs are stable enough for normal cooking but wobbles when rapidly tossing food. I’m thinking that it can be much more stable if the legs are bolted to a metal triangular plate and a weight like a propane tank is placed on the plate. Have you tried that?


You have very good thought.  Making a plate holding the tank is a very good idea.   We did not try it out but we are sure it should help to stabilize when tossing.   Making a plate like what you describe requires welding.   A simpler way is to tie 3 strings from the long leg adapters (next to the stove base plate) to the tank to lift the tank up a bit, or hang some heavy weight like bricks from the strings.   We don’t offer these as shipping charge of these does not make sense.
