CLS Build Out Advice - Thank You!

IC Fam! Finally got my hands on some pro extraction components and a 20lb tank of butane (pics and COA snippet below)!! I'm wanting to build this system out in phases; starting budget conscious for safe DIY, and then upgrading with the end goal to be mining diamonds.

I currently plan to run 62% cured (unless advised otheriwse), market material (haven't determined solid or to grind yet) with butane and step up to dub and trip blends having access to the gas now with fresh frozen in a year or so.

I've been doing old-school open blast forever, took a hiatus and only have what you're seeing in the photos starting out this new build. Having researched and gotten overwhelmed by the options, I wanted to reach out to the community for advice on doing this right the first time, with the ability to upgrade over time.

Thanks y'all!

I would suggest replacing the tapered transition piece with a 1 1/2 X 24 jacketed column.

Do you have your hoses and propane valve tank adaptor yet?

You will need a barrel/pot/?? for hot bath and one for cold.

So you have access to dry ice or will you use regular ice?

@gray_wolf - thanks for the reply. I'm building it out, and only current accessory is the tank adapter converting to 1/4 Male.

Love the jacketed column idea, and do have access to dry ice, but will need pots and vacuum(s?).

Your link is crazy valuable, and will read through the articles in addition to combing through here as I research my perfect build out - thank you. Starting with about $1k to finish this first stage of the system.

You will need at least a vacuum pump, but have a choice of active or passive for recovery.
