I like! Being a DIY'er myself, I wonder how making those parts from piano wire would do? A little harder to bend but would be springy. My Dryer Altoids Stove is on this site and would go well with your stand.

I've tinkered with dozens of alcohol stove designs, including your dryer Altoids stove...nice stuff. It's always a struggle when I pack for a 2-4 day backpack trip, to determine which alcohol stove I will take
