That's how I understand it. I like the 4 adjustable feet for stability and being able to achieve "level enough".

Technically if the item placed on a "three legged stand" or table was evenly "weighted" front to rear and side to side it would be fine.
Something that was heavy one end or the other or heavy front or back might be an issue.


merry christmas to everyone on FRF !

About 20 years ago, I installed four 3/8" nut-serts in my old Coleman stove to level it on picnic tables.

Worked fine, but wouldn't fit back in the area where I stored it w/o removing the carriage bolts! Went back to rocks. LOL.

My immediate thought was a transit... They have to be level and easily done so... They have THREE legs.

I think for this application the four legged board is the correct design.

With a transit, like a photographer's tripod, the load is centered. Also, leveling a tripod IS easier. But for the OP, the 4 bolt design is best.

Very neat idea. I have always used wood shims to level mine up. Very easy to slide under the stoves and they stay put. If they get dirty, they become kindling.
