I spotted this linked on a page full of T500 aficionados. They really weren't very impressed! (Although it may have been the coffee pot comment that set them off! :lol: )

There seems to be two types of "stillers", those who build their own, and those who purchase one.
The builders seem to have an attitude of superiority over the purchasers.
I give full credit to builders, they've accomplished something very difficult.
None of that should discredit purchasers, but, unfortunately, in their mind, it does.

And, that's the world we "stillers" live in.

Quite correct Bill.

I do detect that builders on some forums think they are better than me and maybe they are.

Building is beyond me and I know it, so do what is best for me.

That is a slight over simplification methinks.?
The "those that build their own" group need sub-dividing into the realistic home producers, building for whatever personal reason; and the "I'm going to build the biggest Still that I can" group.
I can look at this from various ways, I built mine, not too big and it works.
I run it once or twice a week.
Someone else built one 4 - 8 times the size and only needs to fire it up once a month.
So what?
I don't feel superior to some or inferior to others.

On this site no-one disses another for running a bought still.
Forget what you have read elsewhere.
This is the friendly place. :)

It is also worthy of note that most builders are NOT inventing but copying.

If you've done something different and pushed the boundaries perhaps you have something to shout about... But those are typically people that don't. They are builders not inventors who are thinking about it.

The "Silly Still" being a fine example!

I built AND bought.

Does that make me a better person than me?
Something... something inspiring and Signature related.
