It all started when I built a vapour managment system as per Mike Nixons
"The Compleat Distiller" appendix 6.
During the constuction phase it occurred to me that I should be able to build a liquid managment and vapour managment still head in one unit. At the time I didn't have any idea if it would have any benefits. I did it because I could.
It turns out that it does have advantages.
Here is my second effort after some rebuilding and some excellent help from Mike Nixon.
So the planning started.....
The last design is it. I could have built a much simpler system but
decided that I like the idea of symmetry.
This means I could use either side for VM or LM....... STEREO ( could be a radio station )
Firebox condensers would allow for a shorter system.
The following constuction story is about an untried idea. In the end it may not work and need modification. It is a 'fast track' plan in that a lot of actual design work will be done as I build. I am trying to write these pages as I build so the end result could be different than what you see here. You'll just have to read on and see how it turns out.
As you go through the pages you'll see some things in italics. Like
If you plan to work in copper and brass on this scale you WILL need oxy-acetylene equipment. LPG, propane, butane are not hot enough unless you can get some oxygen into it. MAP gas is far too expensive for the amount you will use.
They are my hints and ideas about how I do certain jobs. In some cases there may be better ways to do things. Let me know.
