- Oct 14, 2013Keep an eye on E-bay. Will be selling water purification pressure cooker pot stills (wink), thumpers, and air cooled condensers on E-bay and my new up coming web site. They are simple to build, and you will know how to build one with just one glance. Just a lot of soldering 14 joints in one design and 18 joints in the other design.

Subject: Re: [new_distillers] thumper qustionWhy 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.
