load transmission

Just a passing thought! At present the weight from any pots placed on top of the stove is transmitted via the stove sides. Would it not be better to transfer the weight diretly through the legs to the ground, therefore bypassing the compression forces on the stove sides. This could be done either by putting a fixed nut underneath the top surface, instead of a pass-through hole as at present, that the leg would screw into, or instead using a weld nut on the underside of the surface (with the flat face on the "top") cinched up to the butterfly nut on the top-side. The latter is more fiddly but has the benefit of using existing parts already supplied, the former is preferable but would need minor redesign.

Agreed it can be done using the 2nd method with parts supplied however it is a little more fiddly. I do think long term it is better especially if doing heavy cooking . I would certainly suggest customers can use it. The fiddle may create confusion
