Potstillhead stainless steel.

It's been a while since i had time to build some equipment, but there were plenty of ideas circeling my head.
Due to a lot of help to other people, i hardly had time for all those ideas i have.
So i decided to be a little selfish and nurse my ego a bit. :)
My plan was to build a proportional splittinghead (it still is)...
Unfortunatly some material i had seen implemented in my build was used otherwise in the workshop. :ranting:
So..determent not to leave the workshop empty handed, i improvised a little.
For a potstill i have my tee from my CCVM with a endcap on, only drawback is i have to disassemble it.
Not that it is an issue for me, but anyway i liked to have a head dedicated only for a potstill.
It's nothing special, but i would like to share my build with this forum. I hope it can inspire someone with similar ideas.

Hight: 220mm
Diameter (body) 2", Ø51 mm
Takeoff: 3/4" male threaded pipe on cone
Bottom: 1,5" ferrule
Fillerrod: Thyssen Krupp, Thermanit TG 316L
Gas: Argon
Bottom cone, fresh from the lathe

With ferrule to connect boiler

Almost finished, have to polish it a bit

Nice, it looks good in stainless. Looks easy to pack, too, if that's your thing.

I'm finally going to try soldering stainless on Monday, to get my heating element attached. It looks like it's second nature to you, must be nice :]
