Joe Robson provide a contact with a company in Georgia, USA that buys pine gum and then produces turpentine and rosin from it. I have pine trees in my yard and there are plenty of pine trees around here. I am going to try to tap a few. Gather the gum, then distill it. Apparently the boiling pt. of turpentine is about 160C. Therefore I should be able to just boil off the water first, then distill the turps. Any suggestions or partners in this project? Maybe help keep me from burning myself up?
