    Found it laying in the woods. Looks like it could have been used as part of a still. Any ideas?

    What type of metal is it if it’s copper it’s sure to be part of a still I would save it for a rainey day may be able to make some good with it. It could be the condenser

    Doesn't look like rust. It might be worth a lot in scrap.

    There's a reason it's still in the woods. It would be an operation to get it out. I may try it though. Not sure if it's copper or not, I was too busy chasing wood ducks. There are some rusted drums around it and it seems solid. I couldn't budge it.
