Top job on the still Jim , plenty of effort gone into that :thumbup:
Unfortunately the use of glass thumpers is frowned upon on this forum for safety reasons. :(
A nice little copper thumper will look better anyway. :thumbup:

Hate to be the bad voice but the glass thumper should go. On the coil for the worm. What size is it? Needs to be at least 3/8 inch ID to prevent a possible blockage and pressure buildup. Also It looks to have some low and high spots in the downward spiral. This will lead to puddling and possible huffing when it is in use. It need to be a nice continuous down hill spiral . I check mine by filling the tube up with water and letting it drain, then blow in the tube, if any more water comes out you have a trap in the coil.
