Copper Flange

I see this sight with a copper flange that could possibly used to attach a copper head to a SS pot. Dose anyone know if this one would be OK to use?

Re: copper pot still clean up

Is it OK when you clean up after a run with hot slop but do not use your rig for a month or so to leave the green patina
in the column? Or should that all be cleaned out before your next run down to the copper?

Re: Balsa Wood

Up date,
