Brian's Poppery build - 2 too hot?
So I'm getting the first pops of 1st crack @ 2:30 even w/ an extension cord. Maybe add another cord? How do I maximize the out come with the P2? I tried a 1100w Chefmate I found at Goodwill but alas; same results.

Bringing craft and coffee togeather.
If you areadept at modding you can split the fan and heater element into two separate circuits. There are many varations of this. Here is a more simple one. I am attaching two diagrams: one is a pictoral diagram of the heating element"pancake" to familiarize yourself with the layout. The second is a schematic that shows the factory wiring plus a circuit that uses an extra transformer to power the fan, because one portion of the heating element controls the fan. Once you've disconnected the fan if you plug the heating element without it, you will get the heating element. So a transformer is connected to a lamp dimmer to run the motor. This circuit simply switches the heater(s) manually on and off as needed, while leaving the fan connected all the time.

Pretty sure first time I've heard someone complain the Poppery II was too fast :-). How much beans are you roasting? You can also add more beans and stir away if necessary.
