    When I bought my WX10 almost 20 years ago we didn't worry as much about things being made of food grade material. The amount of leaching that happens when you're pumping sap is probably in the parts...

    I regulate mine so that the near syrup doesn't splash all over the place with a nice boil in the front pan. I regulate the flue pan so that the sap doesn't bubble much in the float box. At those...

    I light the fire in the evaporator and turn on the blower. Right after that I turn on the bubbler. I don't turn the bubbler off until the fire is out which keeps the nitre from settling to the bottom...

    The old Leader and King 2x6's were set up that way. The evaporation rate sucked because of the small flue pan.

    My 2x6 has a 2' syrup pan and 4' raised flue, flue pan. I have been using an RO...

    I believe most 3x8 evaporators have 3' front pans and 5' flue pans. That would be the configuration that I would want if I had a 3x8 evaporator. A bigger flue pan will give you a higher evaporation...

    Find the identification plate on the motor of the cotton candy machine. Multiply the volts times the amps listed on the plate to get the watts. If it's less than 2200 watts it should work.

    You can use any grade of syrup as long as the invert sugar is right. I find that sugar, candy and cream made with dark syrup tastes better but doesn't look as nice.

    It looks like elm to me too. They used to use them for wagon wheel hubs because elm is hard to split. It's not good for lumber and isn't the best for firewood. I have a couple of them in my woods...
