Pot still construction
- Hey guys and gals I have recently started construction on a pot
still setup. I am using 2'' copper for the column and it is 2' tall.
Is that too tall, is there an ideal height for this? It will attach to
my beer keg and I will be using my propane for heating. Also I have
attached 1\2 inch copper for the takeoff and leyne arm.
- Sorry to be a little late, but a reminder to anyone wanting to build the x-flow, measure your fittings. Mine were way off from the measurements in Harry's instructions, which meant I had to re-dimension the entire design. My fittings were Cello brand. It was fine, just use the same design, but I had to make the condenser larger. Oh well, I guess I can live with even more condensing power!----- Original Message -----From: rye_junkie1Sent: Wednesday, February 25, 2009 9:34 AMSubject: [new_distillers] Re: Condenser X-flow 0r coil?
All of this was mainly for Doug if he decides to build. Doug, also see:

This is Harry's E book on the head. Page 13 is pretty important.
However i was unable to get it to print to scale so I drew it out in
Rhino(http://download. rhino3d.com/ eval/?p=25) and was able to print to
scale that way. Unless you have a CNC mill this is by far the easiest
way to go.
Marc has a lot of good pics here documenting his X-flow build.
He went longer on His where as I stayed within a 1/4" on Harrys 1/4"
tube length spec.

Those of you who download that Rhino eval will find it quite
a fun program to play with. And if you can pull off the student
cred very cheap as well.
