The lid is flimsy. It has a center section that is 1/2" is lower than the surrounding area.

It is difficult to install the tri clamp on the 1 1/2" ferrule on my lid. I had to use a regular nut instead of the wing nut that comes with a tri clamp as there is not enough clearance with the lower section. Get an extra long ferrule.

I would not try to support much from the lid. I use an 18" section with a LM head. I wouldn't go any taller or heavier. My plan is to operate it like a pot still.
Thanks. Please keep us updated on how your new lid plan works out.
