Hi, my name is Herb, and for those of you who don't know me, I'm a tube-a-holic... Here's a little something I like to do in my spare time....
It's just a start, but more will be added as time allows...

Herb that is absolutely the strangest lookin condenser for a still I ever saw.

Nice bends. Keep posting your projects. :)

Well you see Franz, after generations of being hassled by "The Man" AKA Revi-noors, we had to get more wily... Now our stills are mo-bile and a-gile. Able to evade deep into the woods...

How did you notch those tubes?

Fit-up on cages is critical, and I tend to be pretty fussy about how joints look...
As for the tools, I use a JD-2 notcher, like this one, on a drill press:

Looks Great!! What type of bender do you use?

It's a JD-2 Model 3 adapted to air over hydro.

Bluesman, very nice. I have a K5 blazer and know the offroading bug hits ya pretty hard :). As far as the "blues" in bluesman, musically or other? If musically, is Stevie Ray Vaughan on your top list? He's my guitar idol!
