Here's what if got so far. Still need to make the reflux condenser and the product condenser. I plan to mount it to a 3" packed column. What do you guys think?

If you click on the picture to enlarge it you can see that it is setting on top of my freezer. Sorry for the bad photo I will take better ones tomorrow.

Looks good, nice work :obscene-drinkingcheers:

I'd be tempted to put an LM take off on the reflux return line. That way you can pull fores/heads with it, then use the VM side for hearts. If you pull tails can also use the LM for it too.

I thought about adding a needle valve on the return line. Dont know why I didnt, got in a hurry I guess. Still debating on what kind of reflux condenser I want to put on this thing. I have yet to wind a successful coil so I was going to go with a crossflow. But then I started thinking about a 3" deflag style condenser. What do you guys think.

Thankyou guys for all of the nice commits.

I would go with the crossflow. I haven't had much luck using a shotgun type reflux condenser on an open top column.

The LM takeoff can be added at a future date...
