I had originally drilled my defleg. plates with smaller tubes. afterwards I found that smaller tubes will make the vapor pass quicker through the defleg. not giving an opportunity for a proper reflux, (so I was told anyway).

Well Dfitz, I will just have to put that theory to the test. If it fails it fails at least we will all learn how small is "to small". If it doesnt work I will just have put one on there that does, gotta love tri-clamps :handgestures-thumbupright:

Plated columns with j traps and bubble caps with down comers do you always have to take it off the boiler and invert them to drain

Getting the water manifold drilled and soldered up square proves to be the hardest part of the build for me.

I flanged the 3/4 pipes and installed them from the inside it helped keeping the pipes square and gave the solder somewhere to flow increasing strength. Problem is that the pipe cab only be 2 inches long in order fit it . but it also helps if you don't have a press fit for the pipes . I hope that makes sense lol

Nice build you got going there cacticlaton. Loads of fun building these columns and of course runnin em.
I started on another build a few weeks ago, four plates with different hole dia. and count. Will be interesting to see how differently they run. This is the link to the boiler build. viewtopic.php?f=47&t=1924

Thats pretty cool linny, Im on my way to the garage to give it a try.
Stainless dude, ive followed your boiler build and have been inspired to tig one up of my own. It will be quite the learning experience as I have never tig welded before. But I will practice practice practice intill ive got it down.
