I am interested to see how these plates perform... I have noted that some of the commercial seive plate stills do have larger holes than the hobby equivalents. So I think there is a case for larger holes being effective. But as I only have smaller hole plates. I wonder how the larger holes add to or detract from the plate action.

Larger holes will work if you have sufficient vapor to support them otherwise they will collapse, 3/32 is ideal for home use.

Does that mean I will have to throw a lot of power to the boiler ? I'm completely new to this type of column thus my question.


Thanks, WVS.

Change plates ??? Not complaining it's just that a plated column is completely foreign to me .

I tried to post a template of the hole spacing I used for the Flutes, but being as it's in PDF form the forum software would not allow it. PM me your email address, and I will email it to you.

Edit last post; these plates are 3/32 and I've also done 1/16th" holes with not much deference, other than I went through a lot more drill bits :(

That's really pretty. If you need a test driver, I'm available.

I got those fittings in the mail today WVS, so I will be firing it up for the first time this weekend and we will see what this thing can do, im hoping for around 70~80% full flavor off a 10% UJSM.

Looking good cacti, nice work.
I reckon you'll get your 70-80% easy.

You'll work it out pretty quick WV. Clay will help you the rest of the way, I'm sure.

Like SD said, you're along for the ride!

Ok guys here's a sneak peak of WVShiners still with the new all copper 3/4 " hose fittings that he found. I think there pretty cool and worth the wait good job WVS.

I will do a test run with it tomorrow and if all goes as expected I will shine it back up and send it to its new home :handgestures-thumbupright:

I've been running a little slow this week after blowing my ear drum out by banging on my flaring hammer. I just want to remind everyone to make safety your top priority, even if it means going out of your way to put your ear plugs in and wear safty glasses when building a still.
