Two months ago the drawings issue 01 was posted. Making the microstill I found typos and errors that needed to be corrected. In issue 02 these are corrected.

Regarding the piping, the design was improved. Now it is possible to first solder the inner tubing of the cooler and then the outer tubing. The instructable step 2 is quite clear in describing the sequence.

Following the links to the drawings issue 02.

    Just a question. Are the led push buttons momentary or latch?

      The white button is latch. It will switch the AC/DC converter that powers the arduino.
      Buttons green, yellow and red are momentary. They serve as input for the arduino.

        Thanks very much Robert. Maybe that should be specified in the bill of materials.

        Another question. It seems that 18mm is not a common aize for copper fittings or pipe in my country. Would the still work if I replaced 18mm with 20mm. I would probably need to modify a fitting to create the outer sleeve, but would it affect the operation of the still?

          20 mm copper pipe will work equally well, I assume. I was optimising for small cooler volumes and the availablilty of material. Slightly larger outer cross sectional area will be okay.

          Keeping the total length of the cooler is more important than the volume.
