      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
