Here's how to make an inexpensive primitive removal handle frying pan. We all know some of these guys are folding handle frying pans that are starting to get pricey.

I made two different style pans very easy within a few hours. Go to your local flea market or junk store and pickup a few inexpensive steel frying pans like your grand parents used, I paid $4.00 a piece for these. At my shop I cut the handles off, and then cleaned up the edge of the pan. Found some straping for one handle and a stick of square rod for the other. Heated up the handle with the torch bent them to the desired shape (put a few twists in one handle) and I was ready to drill holes in each frying pan. Once the hole locations were decided on it was just a matter of doing so. Now I have frying pans that pack easy and fit nicely in a primitive camp.
