Re: Question on electrics
Yes. you are 100% correct
8mA is not heating it up, and 10V for a simple supply it's strange
either. But no supply should never warm up for such a small draw, are
you sure you have measuerd that correctly?
The heat from the vapor alone accounts for all the trouble with the

Oh... I have modified my still to be able to fill it while it's
running. I will post photos once I have it completed. I have a valve
that I can set to add a drop or two a second. I'll let you know how
it turns out. Only thing I was thinking now is that I will end up
with too much left over water at some point in the still.

- Luckily some people here are helpful, took genuine interest of the
problem and were able to provide correct answers. Thank you for your
non productive and offensive post.
