Finally got the new 4" flanges for the 4" Crystal Dragon glass column with the 6 holes instead of 4 rod holes yesterday (BIG THANKS TO @Law_Of_Ohms!!) and today went and got the allthread connecting rods. They are sold locally in one meter lengths.
The two extra rods should add a great amount of stability and I also "double nutted" but doubt that detail shows well in the picture above. Maybe this?...
OK, maybe not entirely scientific for plate count but the one meter lengths allowed for 9 glass sections and 9 bubble plates so I went with it. No sawing off of the 1 meter long rods were necessary with 9 glass sections.
Eager to put this into action to test out a few new bits! If it is not raining tomorrow (big if because a super typhoon is heading my way soon) I'll see what this puppy can do. And see if it feels solid with the heavy condensers hanging off it.
The 4 rods with 6 plates felt a bit wobbly and hoping the 6 rods with double nuts and 9 plates will feel more firm.
