New Stir Crazy Motor?
Tony_C
Anyone change their Stir Crazy motor out for a stronger one?
 
JackH
I went through the same thing with my Turbo crazy. I could never find an exact fit motor that had more power.

I then altered the stir crazy case and added a motor in a box mounted below. I rigged a 1/4 inch socket extension from the motor to the arms. Used it for a while then went with a KKTO style roaster.

1/2 pound...no problem, full pound...reverses often then stops.

I have most of the parts to start making my KKTO, just needing the false bottom and insulation. I have a wiper motor, so there will be no trouble there.

That is about what I was seeing too. The motor is wimpy and reverses. I found that the beans would sometimes get stuck under the arms and cause the motor to stop.

I bought a surplus gear motor for my KKTO and it now has plenty of power. The wiper motors work well too.

Looks like we have another KKTO in the early build stage
Well I can tell you that the design has stood the test of time and there are many satisfied owners

So get to building Tony
False floor is easy to make - you can even source an alloy pizza tray and cut to size
So if you want help - just ask the questions we are here for you

Yes, building will start soon. The pizza tray idea sounds good. Is there an insulation available at Home Depot or Lowes that can be used?

I am just a little bummed out on the Stir Crazy motor being weak. It's a cool little roaster, and I have been closing in on getting it how I want it. And I'm still getting some great coffee on every roast, even with the problems I have been overcoming.

You should find it easy to source insulation
Just make sure it's rated to handle the max heat from the turbo oven plus another third to be certain
