We sell a copper still electric upgrade kit that comes with all of the parts needed to upgrade a copper still to electric. You can checkout our copper element adapter kit here:
Our kit includes a copper ferrule which easily solders to the copper boiler. When installing the ferrule make sure it is installed high enough on the boiler so that the element adapter is not lower than the bottom of the still.
1) Hold the element adapter up to the still so it is higher than the bottom of the boiler and make a mark. Next simply trace the copper ferrule with a marker.
5) Test for leaks and clean up the solder
6) Attach the electric heating element to the ferrule with a triclamp and gasket.
