Milk Can Stand - Adding Feet

Has anyone added feet to the milk can stand? I'm thinking of adding a conical buffer before I trash the flooring:


It's an M8 thread so looks fairly simple to attach with a joiner nut. I'm checking the heat tolerance, but the max weight is 170Kg. This leaves about 100Kg for everything above the milk can boiler.

This got me thinking about raising the milk can stand on a M8 steel rod extension. It would be nice to fit a 15L bucket under for draining purposes. I wonder at what height the centre of gravity change makes it dangerously unstable, if an M8 rod will be strong enough for the job, but the important trade-off is the loss of headroom on the column.
