Of course for distilled water only.

I was looking at an amazing still, then an easy still, then a spiral bucket still.
A day of reading and I thought why waste time and money, do it right.

Try this link, the book by Nixon & McCaw (The Compleat Distiller) is verry good. I have this one and found it to be a big help.
