Thanks for the addition to the group. Seriously considering building a drum roaster along the lines of oldgrumpus's. Love the design and craftsmanship.

from the looks of things I do not see......

Chaff collection.
Any type of fan
The heat control appears to be on/off
Can you find out the BTU rating of the burners?
no way to tell what the drum vains are like (agitation)
Tryer?
Sight Glass (looks like a maybe there)?

How are your design and engineering skills?

If you are rocket scientist material and know how to use a welding torch to create art it should be a snap.

Fan is at bottom rear. Chaff collection is most likely collected in a pan behind the black hinged door at bottom right. A question I would have is if there is any connection between the blower and drum exhaust.

This is a nice looking roaster. If the price was right, I would buy it even if some additional fabrication was necessary. Gaining good control of the burner would be easy by adding a decent needle valve.

I'd like to see manufacturer and model #.

A reverse image search of the photo leads to Turkish sites. I think it is made by Uskan. They also make coffee roasters. Not much information.

I agree Allen, it looks like 90% of a coffee roaster. Some tweaks and maybe more power. If the price is right.

You have a lot of room to spend and modify starting at that price.
