I've had the parts for nearly a year now but only just got around to boring out the tees and assembling.

Happy to write up a BOM if there's interest. :wink:

Enjoy, :roflmao:

Nice job, love the look of that!

It has a bit of a "steam punk" thing. Nice, very nice! How long is the chilled copper section? Is it 1/2" or 3/4" ID?

The boro tube is 170mm long, I think I used 1.2mm wall thickness at a guess, only realised after I had 1.2, 1.8, and 2.5 to choose from! (19.6, 18.4, 17mmID)
I'll try and remember to measure the two I didn't use tomorrow. :)

I think the 2.5mm wall thickness might be the best choice to really encourage the spiralled coolant path but I'm not sure, may experiment, any predictions?

I am looking forward to see how she preforms! She is a beauty!

With only 170 mm or 6-3/4" long what are you going to condense with that.

About 500 watts at 2 litres coolant per minute. Rough guess.

It's a component of the rucksackable continuous still pipe dream. ;D
I have slowly been acruing parts and pondering over the last few years.
500W would probably be plenty.

My product condenser is also glass, I had trouble at first with it leaking during heat-up went to the following gasket with hose clamps to seal it and she works great.

Hey AC, it's not good manners to comment on the size of someone else's equipment, I'm sure it has a lovely personality :D

"Rucksackable" is a nice idea. I have built a few small pack away pot stills, but not a continuous one. I am more interested in what seal you used in the compression joint. Did you base it on a glass tank level indicator with the rubber or PTFE packing cones for the glass tube, or did you seal it with a different method?
