Kilogram Roaster Parts
Thrift stores have not been very helpful in finding more roaster parts, but I do want this one to look good B)
At least better than the first one.
Nope not aluminum s:3

I went looking for SS flashing on Google, and had no luck. Then I decided to try Ebay!

Guess I went a bit overboard, but it will look better than a beer keg or laundry hamper.
FYI you can get SS sheet on ebayGrin

This is what I ordered: Ebay Item # 7573406442, for me shipping costs as much as the item. I checked the welding shops in town and the stainless would cost more from them. s:6

Guess I could have bought it a few weeks ago and saved almost as much in gas cost and time.. but it is fun to do thrift shops ;)

Now I can make the inside so it works well, and cover it with stainless Grin

The outer shell can be easily removed to get at the innards for adjustment, if necessary s:2


I recently got some SS sheet for a project in the kitchen from the local sheet metal shop (AKA heating and air conditioning place). I really didn't have any schedule pressure so I shopped the net (a lot) and found what seemed to be the going price for full sheets (22 or 24 gauge). I went down to this guys shop and told him I needed 1/2 sheet (4' x 4' ) and it looked like it would cost me "X" without shipping "what can I get it from you for?". The difference wasn't substantial so I had him get in with his next order - got it in a week. I can't remember what it cost (could I have blocked it ?) s:4

I've had this guy do some little sheet metal stuff for me every once in a while (it would be nice to have a brake and shear) and he never rapes me for it. His business is pretty much installation rather than sales. It's nice to have access to a reasonable sheet metal shop, so I try to pay a 'little' more with him as much as possible.

Still at it, slow but sure. This week I went shopping for a silicon hot pad.
Cut it a bit smaller to insulate above the heater coil in the Turbo Oven.
Even though it is not very thick, I found some noise developed when I put it back together :(s:3.
Turned out that the fan used to cool this upper chamber was hitting the now round heating pad!
Only on the outer edges, so I bent the blades a bit up off the 'floor' so they would clear. Also I stuck it down with hi temp silicon sealer (600F)
Nice! s:3
Heading toward 'ridiculous insulation'
