      Why not use copper pipe as a thumper?  My thumper is made out of 1/2" copper tubbing. A length of tubing, 90 degree elbow going down, 3 inch copper tubing vertical, a 90 degree elbow, 2" horizontal tubing, a "T" fitting with a 4" vertical tubing on top with a threaded cap.  A 2" tubing exiting the "T" horizontal. 90 degree elbow, 3" vertical tubing, an elbow, and a length of copper tubing.  Connect the thumper in line using unions, and fill thumper by unscrewing filler cap.  Place a few inches of water or tails into thumper.

      It operates just like a large thumper, but it heats up fast and producing higher proof alcohol.  One draw back to this design is that it does provide a great deal of space for solids.  Wash needs to be solids free to prevent clogging.
