Bread machine build!
icantroast
Anyone have any ideas how to either strip the teflon from the chamber or maybe even use a different chamber altogether? What things would I need to transfer the base of the current chamber to another of my choosing?

I'm not too worried about the teflon, but I've noticed as i have been roasting some of the teflon on the bottom has stripped off, and I definitely dont want to be consuming any more teflon than I absolutely need to...

THANKS!
-Jim

Jim. As to the Teflon: the roaster where I get my beans told me that once a Fatima has developed on the surface of the Teflon it should be fine. Ok with me. Once I started seeing gouges in the Teflon I started checking my roasted beans but not really concerned. Any pieces of Teflon were sucked up by the Cooler. Now to put a base on another vessel. Cut the whole bottom out, leaving as much flat area as you can. Then, use RIVETS to fix it to whatever you have to put it on. Hope this helps. Ben.

Thanks for the advice Ben! Extremely useful as always. I dont use a vacuum to cool the beans down, but I toss them around a lot. I doubt I'm getting any in my system, but I guess its something to think about. I mostly just want a reason to switch the base! Now to find a good vessel...

The teakettle has plenty of room for beans, really, and the shape helps keep the beans from flying around. You can do a pound easily.

The picture on the right uses two mixing bowls nested together, topped off by a turbo oven. There are lots of possibilities.

Here's a pic of how rivets can be used for attaching a base to a roasting vessel:

I like this, may spawn some ideas for a new winter project. Just picked up a spare bread machine, identical to my first for $10, so I do have some spare parts to play with...

I have literally no idea how to remove the base of this so I can use a different chamber. We have a bread machine that we actually use for bread that has screws, but not this one. Here are a couple pics if anyone has any ideas! https://imgur.com...

You can't just remove the rotating mechanism. Some of the bottom of the pan has to go with it.

Use a Dremel or other rotary cutting tool to cut out the entire bottom including the attachment mechanism. Include as much of the margins of the flat bottom as you can.

A hacksaw will also work to cut the flat, square piece out of the bottom of the loaf pan. You'll end up with a 3-4 inch square that can be rivetted or bolted onto the next chamber you select.

Here's how it looks on the bottom of the Red Kettle.

Jim: ditto what David said plus if you look at the pics closely, you can see where we basically have a square with the corners cut off. This corresponds to the picture you posted. Plus, it is the same base that Dave posted. And the same base that I posted. Mine looks a little rougher, but they are all the same. I found that the breadpan is as flimsy as any breadpan and tinsnips work just fine. And an important thing to do is to try to get the riveter on the inside of the pan you attach it to,because the resulting rivet protrudes on the outside instead of the inside when you do it that way. I can look for more pics if you'd like. Ben

Good point about the riveter.
 
icantroast
Man, you guys are amazing, thanks a ton! I'll have to buy a riveter which I'm not looking forward to and try to find a good vessel, but other than that it doesnt sound too horrible.

I found another pic for the breadpan cutout. This may help.

Thanks for the pic! Do you guys know how much a riveter I could use for this application would be?

My first bread maker roaster broke, so its time for me to make a new one. I'm gonna try to do this one more nicely!

I just checked Harbor Freight and they have a couple for under 20 dollars.

The ones with swivel heads are best for hard to reach places, like down inside a roasting vessel. ThumbsUp

Aha! Item #40690. Swivel head hand riveter. Rivets included! 9.99 on sale. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the link! That's a great price, I'll pick one up soon! I'm wiring a new bread maker and am kind of lost. I made a post in the wiring thread, but in case no one sees that here's the link.http://forum.home...post_52673 Any advice would be appreciated!

Hi Jim. I thought to post a pic but the wire pair color is different.Does the blue/ white wire pair connect at a point on the board that says" motor" . That's your power connection. This was the case for a breadman I rewired.

Two wires power the motor/starter. The starter has two separate wires connecting to the motor.

Are you calling the motor start capacitor a starter? I agree with you that the blue and white pair that plugs into the control board is the pair he should intercept to power it from. Hot side of power cord from wall into on/off switch then to blue lead that was plugged into board. Neutral lead from power cord should go to white lead that was plugged into board. The blue and white leads I'm referring to are the pair now attached to the plug attached to the breadmaker control board.

Interesting! So the hot side of the power cord and the blue wire go into the light switch, and the neutral and white wire are spliced together?
