New Equipment Development

Any sort that runs continuous. Examples are beer stripping stills that have a continuously, vodka stills fed from a beer stripper or any sort of spirit doubler, meaning continuously fed pot still.

Hi Patch,

So far I've got plates, plate fittings, and the 1st stage. Built them all in my very meagre home shop. Currently I'm working on feed assy.

Pledges have dried up, so I'll have to see how far that $400 and another $600 of my own money will take me.
I've had some promising enquiries from a few people offering to bankroll the project as a commercial venture.
However firstly I need to prove (to me) the concept is do-able. Then we'll discuss further developments, like how best to proceed.
.


Slainte!
regards Harry

So much to do, so little time.
I'm wrestling with a number of fabrication changes at the moment. Progress continues...

Hi all.
Apologies for my infrequent appearance online, and to anyone who's donations I haven't yet acknowledged.
I've been laid up with poor health for a few weeks. Work on the project will continue when I'm able, God willing.

Heat stress actually. Complicated by my heart & diabetes issues.
We're going through a heatwave here in Oz. Bushfires everywhere. Doc says I gotta lay low in aircon for a few weeks. No undue exertion.

We're a bit worried about Harry. He hasn't logged in since the 1st of Dec and is not answering emails. If anyone does have contact with him can they ask him to let us know he's OK?

I just sent a message of our concerns to an old address I used to use for Harry. As appropriate, I'll keep you posted.
