Excellent work. You put us all to shame! Now you just need to is connect up one of the new Arduino PIDs and you'll have the latest and greatest!
AWESOME dude!!

Simply beautiful art work!!!~

Shock Your mad skills are showing!

(I'm embarrassed)

Roaster: CoffeeAir II 2# DIY air roaster
Grinder: Vintage Grindmaster 500
Brewers: Vintage Cory DCU DCL, Aeropress, Press, Osaka Titanium pourover

Making some progress, built the wood base and have been working out the remaining functional details.

The motor/vacuum/flame controls will be mounted on the aluminum plate seen on the back corner. Should leave plenty of room for a PID later on...

Still needs the ducting to allow a shop vac to pull air through the cooling tray, and a few other minor bits a pieces before its ready to go.

Barring anything to break the momentum, it will be roasting by Halloween! Grin
wood looks very nice, what type?

Western red cedar - happened to have a wide board left over from my last canoe building project. Perhaps a bit soft for such an application, but it will take on a "patina" more quickly than most hardwoods... ;)
fantastic job, now .....lets see the shop. ;)

Beautiful work! I think I can see one of these on the counter of a home in "Lives of the rich and famous" in the near future.

Any updates?
This is a very cool roaster and I'd like to see the results :)
Wow, simply wow..... stunning work. More pictures please!

No updates yet... :@

Now that its warming up un the evenings I will be more inclined to work on it again!

Have a new, smaller drum to fit, which will neccessitate an additonal baffle inside the drum housing to reduce empty space. Still on the fence with what type of heat source to use; have both 10k btu burner and nichrome...

Stay tuned!
