Here's a couple of pics of where we're up to with our entry level 2" boka styled still, they're going to be pretty much exactly like the copper models I used to build for forum members.

First pic is the main area with take off and sealed temp probe

Looking down into the coil and it's housing

Once the coil heads get here I can get the offtake sorted, hopefully we'll see them next week.

As with all our gear they are modular too :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Hopefully once we source the valves & get the take off sorted we can keep the prices competitive with the other types of HBS stills out there :pray:

Cheers,

Mac

Looks good so far Mac. It'll be great to see a properly developed, well built competitor to some of the shit HBS rigs getting around :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Looking forward to seeing the 12" version :teasing-neener:

Looking forward to seeing the new gear Mac, I think there will be quite a bit of interest in this new addition to the 5Star range of stills. :handgestures-thumbupleft:

We were really busy in the shop today mate, I got a couple of the bokas together and they're sweet little rigs, unfortunately I just didn't get enough time to get some decent pics so you'll all just have to wait until Monday when it's a bit quieter in the store :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Just getting to put this little rig together now, thought I'd share a few pics :D

Almost completed, just needs a thermo and copper take off tube.

Nearly there, should be a great little starters rig once packed with copper mesh and take off completed.

Cheers,

Mac.

Looking at being competitive with the T500's etc, just need to add all the bits up and figure it all out.

We'll have them available in the web store in the next few days :handgestures-thumbupleft:

A mate was looking at buying a T500 to replace his SS Super Reflux, but I think I'll be convincing him to build his own boiler and plonk one of these Bokas on it instead
They look brilliant Mac!

Looks great Mac :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Glad this wasn't around when I bought my Neutraliser as I probably would have bought the boka instead. Haven't regretted a single minute of buying the Neutraliser :D :D :D

Do these still have slant plates like the original boka mac or is that old technology? Because looking at the pics they have donean awesome job of grinding/polishing cant even see where there welded in. Anyway looks shit hot :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Correct Punchy :handgestures-thumbupleft:

This is much different to the slant plate design.
