I was on the list from SM to get one and just pulled the trigger.  I'll let you guys know how it works out.

Congrats.  I'm so jealous!!!

Personally I keep looking at it and not pulling the trigger because I can't decide if I want to go with a bullet, or something like a used 1K mill city roaster.  I definitely want to upgrade from my whirly pop just can't decide.......

Keep us posted on how it's doing!

That looks pretty neat and compact, I like it!.  The price is not too bad either especially if you can do a whole Kg like it claims.  I definitely am interested in  how it works out for you.

I'm thinking forward to my next roaster and this one is high on my list. Please let us know what you think of it.

Good luck!

I pre-ordered back in the early years, and have loved mine.  It does take a little mechanical maintenance, now and then, so you cannot be afraid of opening it up every now and then.  I suggest getting a nice set of metric straight allen wrenches.  You will use them.

When I got it, it did not come with tools, so I bought these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0006O4ADI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1.
