Stainless steel is not magnetic, ehh? While I was in the thrift store yesterday, I came across this basket and thought it might be stainless if it was for deep frying :idea:
Image
So I made a couple trips all through the store looking for something magnetic to test it with. Finally, I found a neat flexible LED grill light stuffed on the back of a bottom shelf. It just so happend to not only clamp to the grill but has three magnetic feet to attach that way(I bought it also :lol: )
The basket barely fit on the lip of the ghillie kettle fire bowl so I cut it about 3/4" up the sides and bent them out slightly to give me a raised platform. Worked like a charm and only 99 cents.

I love my dremel tools! :mrgreen:

I don't know if I can make it all fit inside the kettle with Daren's paint pot. The light was $2.99 and just what a gadget guy needs so I nabbed it. Uses 3 AAA batteries with 6 LED's but no dimmer. Beggers can't be choosers!

Good pin point light source, good deal!!! Mine is called "gorilla" super strong magnets on three flex arms. I'll try to remember to get a photo of it and do a thread on it.

Can you believe..........RG got another bike :D

College towns have got to be the best place for "good stuff" thrift stores. RG is in the right town, right resale town also. He does just fine with his bike sales.

I'm going to get a small stainless steel kelly kettle when they come out at the beginning of the year.

In my eyes, yes :mrgreen: I'm not geared to ultralight........I'm for rhino tough, no melt SS. I'll suffer the weight penalty for longevity ;)

It's a 2 cup version, backpackers size. Hang it on the outside of your pack and let it swing in the breeze. :mrgreen:
