BLACK SOLDER AFTER CLEANING *HELP*

Hi all I’m nearly finished with my build and while I’m waiting for some post to arrive, plus the luxury of having a spare 1/2 day this weekend for myself, I thought I’d take my column apart and give it all a good clean, so placed all the sections into a large plastic container containing a 50/50 vin...

Cleaning a new build rig

What do you use to clean a freshly built rig? white vinegar? distilled white vinegar? Only asking as white and distilled vinegars differ fundamentally in their acetic acid content, and knowing what one to use when cleaning a newly built rig would be handy... I can't be the only person to question th...

Hi Otis, I'm glad my work has had you thinking and I'm cheering to hear how neat you think my work is, but I believe I've covered some function...not all beauty and no brains.

Re: Just Post a Pick of your Rig

I know, I know, my rig isn't complete yet, but it's getting there... plus the forum page didn't specify completed or in progress rigs. Feedback would be amazing.

See the full build so far below.

WOW, that's a good looking piece of kit for sure. Thanks Tony, not bad for a newbie with no build knowledge...what so ever. Been learning a lot on this including the build part, that I enjoy just as much as anything. I do have a massive box of scrap copper and SS now, but failures are the pillars o...

Re: NNB aka Newbie New build

All soldered up, water tested and cleaned up. So so pleased with how this looks and I feel it adds a nice handcrafted touch to the top section of the still. I know its overkill on just the connection of water for the RC but really wanted to make this a feature part.

Re: NNB aka Newbie New build

More support up top, this is to help with the weight of the tubing when filled with water and as a 2" tri clamp blank is limited, thought I would try and incorporate a nice touch to mate the same angle as the copper 90 degree section.

Didn't realise how tight it is on the SS real estate lol.

Re: NNB aka Newbie New build

Added a support bar to the connection ends to help make this a little more robust while considering the amount of connecting and disconnecting this will go though, plus had some advice from a good friend/industry pro regarding support and safety. Looks amazing and very pleased so far.
