Presto PopLite Roaster Mod Maintenance Tips
After looking at the mods a bit more Im not sure modding the unit is the best use of money. I mean I can buy a Fresh Roaster SR500 for about the same cost and it is in a nice clean package. My biggest issue with modding is I am horrible with electrical work, it might as well be written in latin.

If you aren't comfortable doing the electric work, then don't do it. Consider adding a drum to your BBQ or even using a whirly pop. If you are an occasional roaster, or roast in small batches has, you could get by without a motor on the BBQ and crank it by hand.
Instead of trying to wire up a transformer could I simply use a 19.5 VDC output laptop power supply? I understand I will need to remove the Rectifier Circuit from the fan motor but this seems much simpler and a little cleaner of a build.

My question/concern would be can the fan provide enough airflow at 19.5 VDC?
