The T500 boiler has a plastic skirt around the bottom that contains the elements which are stuck to the base of the metal section and the switch/thermal overload wiring (I've got a post here somewhere here showing the guts). I'm think that is what Alan is talking about rather than the plastic section on top of the column since he mentioned the plastic on the bottom.

Cheers,

Thats correct. It is a skirt around the bottom.

I doubt you'd find a replacement for it. I'd imagine the HBS folk would suggest you buy a new boiler.

For what it's worth, could you Macgyver a stand or something to get you through? :think:

After all. distilling has always shown that necessity is the mother of invention :mrgreen:

Have a look at plastic welding may be an option.

Or see your local hbs i actually was thinking of the plastic bit on the still not the boiler base. My local sometimes gets non working ones then you could swap the base over..
