    Agreed. Just sad to note another age old business no
    longer what it used to be. There are other suppliers
    though. Some more progress today. Managed to secure
    the outlet from the reflux stem into the condenser. Not
    a very good result, another learning curve for me. Job still
    requires some attention.,..

    Two steps closer at achievement. Found another supplier of
    copper sheeting and also stainless steel products. Both seem
    very reasonable.

    Now to find a company that does laser jetting.
    Got a quote today and it seems we are looking at
    R200 mandelas in order to create a flange of the
    copper square. The same required for the lid!
    (stainless)

    My problem being finding a seal that will seat both
    bucket and lid. Tried everything but alas.

    The copper flange remains to be a problem.

    Some more progress. Managed to turn the square copper plate
    on a lathe and make it round. Also the hole in the lid which was
    difficult being stainless steel. The gasket was quick.
