the oils (supplier) you mention are not that expensive , as someone has already said it will cost a lot more to produce them yourself once you take glassware ,heating and the time spent growing your own into account.
im sorry but you are not going to produce anything pure or worthwhile using kitchen utensils or stuff lying around the house with little or no knowledge of how any still works.
you have not said what it is you are actually trying to get or do , oils can be stripped in other ways such as using high alcohols (such as making cannabis oil from material )

This is meant also a hobby and learning experience.  From everything I have read, I don’t want to use solvents and would like to use steam.

I would like to make candles, scented lotion, shampoo, & things of that nature.  Do they have classes on making essential oils? 

There was a copper one that caught my eye. It was pretty simple 

I also seen one that resembled a coffee maker of a sort. I can’t remember the reviews on that electric ran one but I fear that it would not hold up.

People often underestimate just how much material is needed for making essential oils from flowers etc , its just not viable /worth doing on a kitchen stove etc .
https://www.aromaweb.com/articles/essential-oil-yields.asp

any still will do the job (though glassware would be better for what you want), the one you mention sounds like a copper pot still.

just do a google search for ' how to distil essential oils at home'  , do the same for your area to see if you can find any classes.

Yes i use this copper destill. you still need alot of plant material for essential oils. it depends on the plant, for example you can get up to 20ml oil out of 1kg lavender

Thank you all for sharing.  I have seen many of the cooker set ups but they don’t look safe with the lid being flat.  I have been looking into it more and have seen clay set ups that seem to do the job.
