Any reviews of factory built stills?

Postby PIDnerd » Thu Aug 04, 2016 12:25 pm

I want to make fuel for a small Stirling engine. Having battled with my homemade 2" Boka for 8 months with no success, I've had enough and am looking at purchasing. Are there any sites where this equipment is reviewed: principle of operation, stability, ease of use, etc? The various suppliers I've seen on line don't go into much detail about their products. Having real user reviews (especially from a newbie perspective) would be most helpful.

What seems to be the trouble with the Bokakob build...??? That's the right tool for the job, or one of the right tools anyway...

lowes has denatured alcohol for less than $8.00 per gallon

there is no way for you to produce a gallon of alcohol for that price.

That was my thinking as well...
