Stevea...
The Speed control is an extension cord dimmer switch. :)

I have a second fan for cooling but have never used it. For now it's a back up fan.

I have a slide on the drum that makes it either solid or perf by just sliding a handle.

Having to tilt the machine is the only thing that bugs me about this machine but it might be fixed now, I was a fairly early adopter.

The burner is silly good I think, never had issues with it.

It came with the roaster but I'd really like to source something like it as a back up.

IR propane burner, highly adjustable and roasts like a bazillion batches on 1 tank. :)

Hmm ... that sounds like an extremely high number.

I liked what I saw of your roaster. I also liked how your bean cooler worked. I now have roaster and cooler envy!

I'm on about 90 roasts and have a lot of gas left. Isn't that close to a bazillion?  8)

Gas cost so far is $15/90, or $0.17 per batch.

This would be a good foundation for fabricating a roaster....After looking at the Huky, it doesn't seem all that much of a challenge. The Lysander pro 200 looks simple enough as well.

I agree.

It's simply a drum sitting on top of the burner. The cool part is the fan drawing the air.

One outstanding setup for sure!
