Mounting the Still Shield

  1. Using a towel dipped in ethanol, clean off the rim of the shield (the part that will come into contact with the still plate). We want to clean off anything that has stuck to any left over thermal grease from the last mount.
  2. Using M3 screws with washers, raise and mount the shield to the still plate. It is easiest to work with opposites: one person holds the shield on one side, while another inserts a screw on the opposite side, and then switch, making sure to always be working with screws 180 degrees apart.
  3. Clean the outside of the shield using ethanol.
