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

chaff unit not collecting
gary3917
Hi all, I have a Santoker 3 kg and it will not send chaff to my chaff collector. I have played around with the air flow,reduced air flow to low and to med and hi , and my chaf goes out the vent pipe . I even put a screen with medium size holes in the chaff vent b4 it goes out the vent to stop it but it only clog it up real fast but I do see all off the chaff going straight out of my exterior vent .Is this a bad idea for my Sedona Elite 3200 ( Santoker 3kg) .The chaff collector is completely useless . I'm thinking the chaff motor is too strong and I have tried to reduce the suction ...but no help .Sure would love your ideas to help me or should I not worry about it ?

Have you checked the bottom opening of the cyclone cone? Maybe it's plugged... Hidden above your chaff removal door...

yes I have ...everything cleaned out . maybe I need to change the chaff door gasket as it is gone. I did not realize that little bit of leakage would be a problem ...but I am hearing it is bad to have a small amount of air loss
