Homestrand 205-32A Gimbal?

Anyone know if it is possible to gimbal a Homestrand 205-32A stove? they are affordable and easily convertible to Kerosene/Paraffin for a cheaper and faster cook time than Alcohol. I'm just wondering if they can be gimbaled and if there is someone who has already figured out the answer to my dilemma? Thanks in advance for any help any of you salty sailors can send my way.

Re: Homestrand 205-32A Gimbal?

My Parker-Dawson 26 came with a gimballed Kenyon Homestrand 206 which I converted to kero.

The 206 is nearly as common and the gimbally part is not rocket science to put together if you have access to a welder.

It's really nothing more than a internal and external frame with a 1/4 inch shoulder bolt and bushing for the pivot then a counterweight and lock pin.
