New Roaster Project Update

Ready for delivery

The new roaster works- it moves the beans without the motor stopping.  However, the rotisserie motor has proved to be much too slow, which results in an uneven roast.  This roaster will eventually work, but I am going to have to invest in a more powerful motor.  Eventually, I might be able to use the same motor for my drum roaster.   For now, I will continue with the Turbo Crazy.  I actually roasted my largest Turbo Crazy batch ever today- a full 14 ounces.  It didn’t have any problems.  I think I can probably do a full pound, maybe more, but I’m afraid to push it.  One of these days I’ll try it.
