I love the still head. It is very unique, and a thing of beauty. Every bit as impressive as the boiler. Master craftsman indeed.

The controller is also very impressive. I like the built in thermometer/thermocouple part. I have a few PID's, and was considering the same type set up.
The only "off" question I have is... I don't see any breakers or fuses in the schematic. Is there anything protecting the individual components?

I realize failures are very rare. It's a beautiful build from top to bottom. I admire your skill sets. :clap: :clap: :clap:

I may need to be "put down" soon.

You should be able to find room for a few of these AGC surface mounts... One each for the fan/amp/volt meters/temp console.
You could also build a separate breaker box for the element side. Plug your outputs into the separate box, and from there on to the elements.

I am in NO way critiquing the build. Just trying to help. A 15 cent fuse is WAY better than a melt down of the lower amperage components.

It's a beautiful still, and I envy you to my core.

It's a piece of mind thing. i read a few threads where the low amperage stuff lit up.

I also found (on FleaBay) some 220 volt Micro LED's. I installed them at each stage of power. that way I can see any failures as they/if they occur. Real sharp looking stuff, and around 2 bucks each.

Really a great rig, and I know it will serve you well. You HAVE to post up wasted after your first drinking session to fill us in on the thousands of great aspects of your still.
