Some nice pics here. The open in slideshow format. Not that I'm planning any new builds at the moment, but sometimes it's good to poke around the net for new information. I hadn't known about the onion formers before...

Another, but Scottish. Click on the slideshow/gallery. Interesting - this is not Forsyths in Rothes. Damn, that elbow would make a good boiler on its own!

Astonishing! Slides 4 & 5 look more like he is working in a ship or a swimming pool than a still. That is some truly massive copper smithing.
