      There's no need to try to do it at the same time. Once the plate is in, it
      won't move, even during the second soldering.

      Subject: [new_distillers] Soldering on the ministill


      I'm making a slightly larger version of the bokakob ministill. I'm
      confused as to the construction details the 1/4" tube that connects
      the needle valve to the 2" column.

      I'm using stevolate's adaptation for the plates (- a cut in the side
      of the column and wedge the plate in rather than soldering to the
      condenser or the inside of the column - and I figured I'd solder the
      outlet and the lower plate in one go. That's probably the only way to
      do it, come to think of it. But do I need a special fitting for the
      outlet tube, or can I just drill, then file for a wicked tight hole,
      fit the tube flush to the inside of the column, and solder it? That's
      what bokakob's diagram looks like, but I don't know anything about
      this stuff and I'm worried I might be missing some accepted and sound
      technique that was assumed in the diagram.
