Not sure if joking, but definitely a bad idea.
A friend of mine ordered one online. He used it to make a lot of shine, and it was getting pretty popular in the area. He would stop by grocery stores and get all the fruits and veggies that were getting thrown out and would make stuff out of those.
One day, when he was at work, the ATF showed up to his house. His wife was home, and luckily she read the search warrant closely and the address was for his rental house. Apparently, he shipped the still to his old house before he moved. His wife told them it wasn't for this address so they didn't have permission to search. She called my buddy, he drove home and quickly disposed of his equipment. The ATF showed back up again, but could not find anything. He got lucky.
Apparently the company he purchased the still from was required to hand over all the information of people who purchased stills. I believe distilling equipment is illegal in all states but Missouri? (Without a distillery license, which is a pain in the butt to get. I've tried.) Heck, in Florida you weren't even legally allowed to own anything that could be used to make mash. Like corn.
