Looks good mate :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Just a tip, it might be the photo but it looks like she's leaning a bit. If you can get her to stand up straight the reflux will run through your packing better. The lean may cause the reflux to run down the side of the copper and it won't mix with the upcoming vapor or the packing as well. I found that my % wasn't quite as good when I've been lazy and left it on a lean.

You should only need to put a bit of wood or something under one side of the boiler to level it out. No need for fancy legs :laughing-rolling:
