You guys who have watched the video's and are maybe already spinning, how do you plan to or how are you cutting your circles? Did you see that circle cutter yet in the second video?

This is my plan.
I am glad this fellow shared his inventiveness.

Distill safe. Make good cuts. Enjoy yourself. Give as much as you take. Have fun doing this incredibly hard work. Be a good example. It's your hobby.

Hmmm. That might be doable for me as well. Thanks!

Here's my rainy day concept of a spun copper still (boiler & head). No soldering required to this point. The little half rings outside edges are supposed to represent a clamping ring like a barrel top sort of.

Wife sees me watching the video. Askes what that is. "This is what we talked about the other night when you seemed excited about selling the stuff I could make in a little shop". "How much do one of those machines cost?" "I told you about 5K for a good one and you said it would be worth it, and about another 10K for some other tools that you have to have to make it all work and a shop to put it all in." "So how much we talking about?" "oh about, probably somewhere in the vacinity of more than you want to hear". "That's what I thought!"...wife exits the room. I go to bed in peace and quiet :|

I'm right there with you except I want to make the style that is in the upper let hand corner. In about a .75L size these would be nice to sell at a booth at the state flee market or something like that.

Probably sell like hot cakes and pay for everything in short order.

My son is going to be taking some classes on this. We are soon going to be in the market for a large lathe. We are about to build a
4000 square foot shop and this is one thing will be adding as we start tooling up to build copper boilers in house. This is a very neat craft for any still builder..

no braggin I just found it.. I am not very welcome over at HD anymore. They think I am to controversial I guess. I just found this thread and I thought, Hell this is exactly what were are wanting to do. Time will tell if we can make it happen. Pretty big step... but one we want to and are planning on taking.
Sorry if it came across as bragging that is not what was intended. maybe I should have refrained.

You ain't nothin' without your customers. You need to make amends over there or your business WILL die. Swallow your pride and make things right with everybody who complained................and promise to do better in the future. Make good on that promise!
