Bobby M15's drum

You have been working on this for quite a while. I am glad it worked out for you.

KKTO Roaster.

Thanks Jack!

Yeah now it is easy-peasy. When it is summer here it is too hot and winter too cold to roast outside, so, I cut two holes with a large hole saw in my garage door to exhaust outside. When I am done I have covers I put over the holes. This is working out great since I have heat and AC in my garage.

My wife keeps track and we are near our 100th roast! woohoo

Amazing. What an achievement, building your own drum roaster (that works!).

I CAN tell you it cost me about $ 550.00 out of my pocket when I cut the end off of part of my right thumb lol.


Guess you really put yourself into this project ... (bad humor, sorry!)

What a story. You would have me as a customer!
Roast: Kaldi wide, SR800, various other projects

Congrats on doing a 100 roasts. That is awesome! On top of that you are able to enjoy a really good drink.

Keep up the good work.
