    I've used the stubby and adapter and find that I like the one piece seasonal spout better. There's no chance of the spout and adapter getting pushed apart on a hard freeze and something new goes into...

    That's exactly what you want to do. Raise it so that it's a 1/2" below the bottom of the flues and fill in the space behind it all of the way to the back of the arch.

    No, once you get it fine tuned you leave it where it's set. Later in the season you'll need to use more defoamer but that's it.

    My holes are 1/16" too and they're spaced 1" apart. I copied a bubbler that they had at Bascom's when I made mine.

    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...

    I sell my bulk syrup for $35 per gallon, maybe I need to raise my price. Just kidding, I'm keeping my price where it is. I get more selling to other producers at that price than Bascom's will pay so...

    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.
