a new column

I've been collecting parts for a new still column for a while.  Most parts came from my box of copper scraps but it was the 3/4" union, NPT adapter, and thermometer that I needed to turn my spare parts into what you see on the left.

The plan called for a 2" by 12" column pipe but I saw no need to keep a 4 inch piece of 2" copper pipe in my scrap box so it's a little taller than planed.  The 12" was just a guideline, anyway.  The important part is the 3/4" union that allows adjustment of the lyne arm coming from the column.  With this design I can include an eight foot horizontal lyne arm going to the condenser, or a vertical connection to the thumper, like the one pictured.  The angle of the lyne arm is crucial for flavor.  Horizontal will give you higher proof and less flavor, vertical will give more flavor and less proof.  Most rigs on the market have the lyne arm at a 45 degree angle for the best of both worlds.  This system is fully adjustable and for this application I chose vertical to include the thumper for maximum effect.

The addition of a thermometer is a luxury and a much needed tool.  In my previous setup I had to guess what the column temperature was by the sound of the marbles in the kettle.  Now I know the marbles start making noise around 105 degrees.  Since different alcohols vaporize at different temps, a thermometer comes in handy for making the cuts.  I should have a thermometer on the thumper, as well, to regulate the final product.  All in good time.

Before this run, I distilled a few gallons of water as a trial run and to clean out the pipes, I managed to bring down the total dissolved solids of the well water from 37 to 2.  Not bad.  Even better, it showed the system is tight and leak-proof and ready for anything.

I ran a rum wash to compare to previous runs, to see if any of these improvements would make any difference.  In my humble opinion, they sure as hell did.  After the first 150ml, which I tossed, the first jar came out 156 proof with a distinct molasses flavor.  Ordinarily, I would set this jar aside because of high alcohol and lack of flavor.  In this case, the flavor came through, as did the rest of the run.  As the temp rose close to 210F and the proof slowly dropped, I stopped collecting the good stuff at 110 proof and saved the last bit for recycling.  I managed to get a gallon of the tastiest 136 proof rum I ever made.  All it needs now is proofing it to 80 and whatever flavor I desire.

Analysis:  The shorter column hight and vertical drop to the thumper reduced any reflux that a taller column would produce, trading off proof for flavor.

The thumper acted as a secondary distill, eliminating potential off flavors and maintaining a consistent run.

The thermometer placed at the top of the column allowed me to maintain a consistent 195 - 200 degrees for the outgoing vapor.  Since ethanol vaporizes at 174 degrees, keeping it hotter carried more impurities in the form of flavor.

Once the temp reached 205 I detected a faint smell of tails, indicating I was reaching the end of the run.  The accuracy was spot on and the only unusable stuff was the very last jar that developed a slightly opaque look, indicating the presence of water and fusals.  This will go in the thumper on the next run.  A few gallons of dunder left in the boiler will be added to the next rum wash to improve flavor.

Now that the rum is out of the way, I can run that barley corn mash I've been sitting on.

I'll keep ya posted.

staff update

After working with the orgone staff for a few days, I kept thinking how I can prove this unit works.  Granted, the staff has to acclimate itself to me and the Earth but I thought three days was enough so I went on the back porch and tried a few things.

In the dim light of the back porch, I held the top orb of the staff to the dark ceiling with the bottom tip grounded, as I stared at the orb in a meditative state.

I trained my eyes on the staff orb and saw what I thought was hundreds of gnats in the background, followed by wisps of what looked like smoke oozing from the orb in all directions.  There was also this discharge from between the paracord wrap, about one inch below the base of the orb.  This was the exact place on the staff where a crystal was inserted.  According to all data I have on shapes in relation to energy discharge from orgonite, an orgone orb emits energy omni-directional and what I saw proves it.

A little background.  Back at the farm, I would meditate as I looked out over the meadow and focused on a spot in the woods. When I reached "the state" I could see a mist over the meadow, drifting left, toward the pond.  I could feel a breeze drifting to the right, away from the pond, as this was happening.  Whatever I was seeing wasn't obeying the laws of physics.  It was drifting against the wind like it wasn't there.  I taught this technique to a half dozen people who saw the same thing.  Being skeptical, I viewed this meadow from several different locations and all of them showed this invisible mist drifting against the breeze. 

There's a reality that runs parallel to this that doesn't obey the laws of physics.  You can see it if you train your eyes to see it.  I saw this mist enveloping the staff orb on July 10th, no matter how much I told myself it was more illusion than reality.

What I want to know is, what's the relationship between the meadow and the staff?

mobius coil wand

Not satisfied with the orgone mini-wand, I set out to build something a little more traditional looking but as effective as I could get, without going too organic.  What I came up with is the amethyst wand you see to your left.  The half inch copper pipe is stuffed with nine amethyst crystals in a simple matrix of resin, brass dust, and lots of catalyst to set up fast.  The end has a copper 3/4"x1/2" reducer to accommodate the larger amethyst crystal and smaller DT quarts crystal.

After building this unit, I noticed the balance was all wrong and needed something like a pommel to center the balance of gravity.  I suppose it would've been too easy to fill a capped, larger pipe with resin and shove in the back end.  Fact is, the thought never entered my head until now.  In hindsight, that would have been the preferred method I should have taken.  As we all know, hindsight is always 20/20.

Instead of simplicity, I was pre-occupied with graduated copper cylinders that fit inside each other, ala Joe Cell.  I had all the parts in raw form.  It was just a matter of putting it all together.  I found there was just enough room around each pipe to accommodate a single wrap mobius coil from a strand of cat 5 wire.  If I wrapped a coil around the end of the wand and another around a 3/4" copper pipe, I could fit one over the other and a 1" copper pipe over that.  The result would be three copper pipes inside each other separated by insulated copper mobius cable in a zero point energy fashion, similar to a Joe Cell.

Oh Hell yeah!  That was so much easier than filling a tube with resin... NOT.  Let me tell you, it was a giant pain in my ass to build this thing.  It's not just fitting mobius cabled tubes inside each other.  There's connecting the wires that make it work.  Somehow, I had to complete the Joe Cell circuit by connecting the two mobius coils and the inner and outer pipes to the mobius leads to complete the circuit.  The mass is too great to use a soldering iron and a torch will incinerate the insulation on the wire.  Soldering the two coil wires together was easy but copper pipes are just heat sinks.  It seems aluminum tape is conductive, so I made a conductive ribbon to make an electrical contact with aluminum tape to secure it without heat.  Pure genius! 

The only place to ground the 1" tube was the cap.  I hot glued a heddeka on the end to cover the aluminum tape.  Not really happy with it, I might swap it out for a suitable stone to complete the pommel.

How does it work?  This is all theory but the coils and tubes at the end are a reasonably closed circuit, meaning there is no direct connection between the first and third tubes but the gap allows a zero point jump, accelerated by the coils.  It's the same principle I use on the PVC CB where there's a gap between cone and pipe.  Or, in automotive terms, the gap on a spark plug that makes it fire.  The separation of the tubes, with the mobius cable as insulation, makes it happen.  This pommel stimulates the rest of the wand, packed with metal, resin, and crystals, to a higher degree than just the wand alone. 

It certainly improved the performance of this wand.  Without the pommel, you could feel a slight something.  More than orgonite and less than a field generator.  The complete unit, by comparison, is night and day.  I can feel the tingle a good five inches from the crystal.  For me, that's damn good for a passive device.  There doesn't seem to be any energy discharge other than the crystal on the end, making this unit perfectly directional.  The discharge all comes thorough the end crystal.  You point it and it works.  A tool like this would be excellent to organize an aura.  It's uses may be limited to what the amethyst is capable of.  Among other things, amethyst protects it's owner from drunkenness.  It also brings forth the highest aspirations of human kind, so I guess it's not all bad.

The world is full of different stones and crystals.  Pick one you resonate with for the purpose you want.  Maybe an all purpose wand with detachable ends could be an option.

As far as the feel... There's some weight to it but not too much.  Perfectly balanced and with a paracord wrap it feels real good in my hand.  I might make a few more of these, if the spirit moves me.  The length is exactly elbow to fingertip, proper dimensions for a traditional wand.  This won't make you fly but it could let you soar.

I'll keep ya posted on this one.

staff building 3, 6, 9

Unlike most of the sites out there, showing a stick with some crystals jammed in the cracks, there are a few people out there that take pride in what they do.  I am one of those people.

I started this project because my neighbor had a staff and, after some coaxing on my part, demonstrated what a staff was and how to use it.  I now understood the whole Gandolf thing and decided to build my own staff.

We took off first thing in the morning to Fire Tower Road to look for a suitable piece of oak to turn into a staff.  What I got was a rather large piece of maple.  Close but no cigar.  Later in the day we went to a local park, where I found a standing dead piece of hawthorn that caught my eye.  This turned out to be the one.

Let me tell you a little about hawthorn.  It's a craggy tree that doesn't give up easily.  It's tough and it's main use was axles in wagons.  Standing dead, this tree wasn't giving up without a fight.  By the time I got it in the car it had sustained multiple splits but still held it's shape.  If this was oak I would've left it on the trail but being hawthorn gave it dispensation worthy of attention.

I had an idea what I wanted but felt compelled to let the wood speak to me.  I cut off the splintered ends and bark and allowed this piece of wood to take shape.  I fitted a copper ring in the base to keep it from splitting and to provide a good ground.  I filled the ring with resin and a double terminated quartz crystal.  I used shellac as an outside cover to protect it and add an extra layer of organic material.  I inserted another DT crystal in the top with an orgone orb I made years ago as a dispersing unit for my first field generator.  This was held in place by a tensor ring, 1/4 cubit, with three copper wires to secure it.  I used paracord to finish it off.

The result is a staff with an orb at the top with more hidden goodies inside to make it functional, more than a prop.  The grounding of the staff while holding it turns it into a personal spiritual battery that you can use for expression when needed.  Like a battery, it takes time to charge, to acclimate itself to you.  In the short time I worked with this staff, I could feel the energy increase.  I calculate it will be three days before I conduct my first test of this unit.

Let's recap.  I conceived the idea and secured the wood on July 4, 2017.  Using numerology, that date is reduced to 3.  I built it three days later, 6.  I plan to implement it on July 10, 2017.  That's 9.  3,6,9.

Ya think Tesla knew something we didn't?

orgone mini-wand

The inspiration came to me to make a small power device.  I wouldn't call it a wand but it's a rather powerful device, just the same.

The construction is simple... A 5" copper pipe with a citrine in one end and a quartz in the other.  The inside has two SP crystals pointing out, sand, key dust, and resin.  That's it.  Almost too basic to work.

Later that night, we got to playing with this cylinder with different combinations of pyramids, tensor generators, and crystals.  Some worked better than others but none of these combinations impressed me.  Even wrapping it in a mobius coil and feeding it frequency left me flat.  I got better results from the simple orgonite I made, so I treated it like a piece of orgonite and put it under my bed to see if it would affect my dreams.

That night was the best sleep I've had in months and I woke the next morning fully awake at 5am with thoughts of a new pipe design that included lapis in the center.  For three nights I slept with this pipe under the bed giving me the most outrageous orgone enhanced dreams about aliens and men in black and endlessly discussing something that would repeat a hundred times a night.  My deep REM sleep was starting to get exhausting from all the night time activity.  I removed the cylinder before bed last night and my sleep returned to normal.  At least I know this thing has some wicked, hidden power behind it.

I keep going back to that first time and the idea for a larger one with lapis.  Maybe this unit is just a primer for the wand I haven't made yet.  If this small pipe has such dramatic effects, what do you suppose a larger one with five times the volume would do?

I'll keep ya posted.
