I would , but it's not a finished product yet.
The first MH-1 build is on this thread;

That machine was sent to Allen for some testing and improvements.
If the platform proves to be worthy....then perhaps a second one will be built. That's why this thread was started.

Maybe part II will be a propane thing Grin
We'll see....... -Scott
Over the last 2+ months I've had the pleasure of hosting Scott's very cool MH-1 fluidbed roaster open source build project. As described in his thread ?Maximum Heatgun MH-1 HRO Edition? the goal is to put the roaster in the hands of HRO members for testing and possibly improving if deemed advantageous by the member and Scott.

I've run it through it's paces and performed various tests including control of rate of rise using variable airflow only and trying various charge weights. This roaster performs wonderfully and produces some excellent tasting coffee. I've only made minor alterations to the heating element chamber so far and there are opportunities for more improvements by the next member selected to carry on the project.

I'm requesting volunteers who would like to be the next host of the MH-1 to take it to the next level of improvements.

Preferred skill set:

-Experienced in coffee roasting
-Have previous experience with fluidbed roasters
-Good understanding of electricity and resistance wire convection heaters

Scott has supplied an ample quantity of green coffee for testing purposes which I will forward with the roaster so don't disqualify yourself due to not being able to afford a few pounds of green for experimentation. Although, you will probably want to roast some of your own stash once you see what this roaster is capable of.

If interested, please respond to this post or PM Scott for clarifications and questions.

Thanks Scott for allowing me the opportunity to be the first member besides yourself to test run this fine roaster!

Oops, I edited this and saved changes only but somehow it moved it to the top. Honest, no bump intended!::trink25:

1.5" . It works out well for sourcing all the exhaust bits. Standard plumbing.
There is a link on post #5 of this thread. I bought one just a few weeks ago at "Target" for 19.99$
That's where I bought all the previous ones. Seems like a normal stock item. -Scott
