So I'm guessing that azalnaught was just a tease and all this post amounted to is a few pictures of teflon porn?

Every time somebody pops in with this (non-novel) adapter idea, they just disappear.


!! ** POOF ** !!


When somebody can actually make these adapters, there's money here...

Give the poor guy (girl?) a minute! He's a student and doing this in his free time, after all. The space between his previous two posts was 10 days, and it's only been 7 since the last one. I think the fact that he cranked out a prototype after his first post is a good sign.

I'd also be interested in a paint can distillation adapter. Looks like this Teflon business is an untapped gold mine!

Does the teflon fitting have to be the part that connects to the paint can lid.everyone wants this for distillation not reflux right? I'm thinking a brass threaded compression fitting attached to the lid with a hex flanged back nut on either side of the lid which has a copper or SS distillation neck which has a teflon stirrer bearing on the end that attaches to a condenser.

Yikes, not sure what I was thinking there. Time to go home and rest...

Brass would be better, but the end goal is to ultimately connect this to glass, and a single piece of PTFE is probably the most achievable way of going about this.

The Kimble catalog actually has a "blank" which is a glass tube somehow attached to a metal tube made from some special alloy. It's designed for constructing the same type of devices we're discussing here. You'd need two different skill sets to effectively make use of this though.
