Steaming from the ears by now due to the exams (soon done), but some progress has been made nevertheless. We have the kettles needed for the boiling setup. Now we are working on rebuiling them for our needs. Here is a little glimpse of the punk looking device:
This is somewhat how our steaming kettles will look like. All the temperature control has been taken out, more details on that later. You might wonder about the kettle melting, but then concider that water boils at 100 degrees Celcius under normal circumstances, no more, no less – excellent temperature regulation. The bevelling outlines are RTV silicone. I am also rebuiling my welder to produce DC voltage and current, giving better welds and also enabling the use of eg. aluminium and copper electrodes. Back to textbooks!
