Hottop Project outside the box
OldMan41
Man I thought the first probe was tough.
The last probe came in.
It took me alot longer...
It still tests good so I didn't break it.
I had to stop. My neck hurts & I need more, (wait for it) COFFEE! Roflmao
I'll finish putting it together later.
I'll test a dry run first.
Then I roast some Ethiopian...

Still no guinea pigs?¿?

Today after a whole week. Omega finally answered me.
I was having trouble with drivers. Would work for 1-3 hours.
They did not offer to help, but said if I buy their cable and software for 40bucs.
I'd be good to go...
Pissed,,,
Found what I thought would work in UK, same company for free.
But it only lasted longer before reinstalling drivers! Again.
But they sent an answer for free!
Followed link and seams good.
Will update later in the week. jazzyhands

Yeah but I saw where someone put 2 probes in the chute lid.
Didn't even think of that!
Also had to tweak both of them.
The 2nd one, I did not allow for the beans to jam up against the 3/8 compression fitting.
Had to move 1/8th" and make stainless washers to fill the larger opening,
that's now in the back wall.
Dammit...
Also now have a hole in the chrome cover.
Making it harder to resell when I'm able to buy a Huky.
Testing the drivers/software today.
So far it looks good.

Anybody want 100grams of free roasted Ethiopian?
So I can test this...

OK! This is without the new upgrade UK-105.
Data logger drivers are much better.
Buuut! It still drops out almost every 1-5 secs.
Though allowing the Artisan software to fill the gap so most of the graph is normal looking.
I think I need to calibrate the data logger probes.
Not sure it 100%.
Last 3 batches of Ethiopian are Ok,Ok, not tested yet.
[b]Breaking news[b] New upgrade arrived!!!
But my neck is really sore!!!
Need to heal.
Wait for it....... Ordered a 1050W heat element & PWM!!!!!
Think I'll wait till next week end to put it all together.
Need fusible link info to get a new link.
Hottop had a 900W test unit.
Never put it out for public!
Wish I had that info!!!
I'll wing it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!limb

Well I installed all my UK-105 upgrade but the element.
I am waiting on a 1000w element to arrive.
WAIT! Don't yell at me.
Hottop had a 900watt prototype.
I got a PWM to tone it down. limb
Now quietly, any thoughts?¿?

Set roaster on auto to see what happens.
Seams to roast alot faster...

Auto ran 3 mins faster than program.
Manual without charge took 1.5 minutes less.
Manual with 250 charge and 240grams took exact time minus a few seconds.
Will roast Sumatra lintong this weekend.
Ran outta Ethiopian.
OldMan41
OK!
I roasted 300 grams Sumatra set to 18mins.
Dropped beans in at 16mins, 174degrees.
Made some fan, heat tweeks...
Had to dump at 15.5 mins first batch.
Second batch all the same.
But... let it go 20ish seconds longer to hit 10ish seconds into 2nd crack..
Both smell good... 1 a touch fruity and other woodsy?
Will taste monday and tuesday.

Consistently roasting 300G. Like it but will try something other than Sumatra soon. (30lbs so far)
From charge to drop has been, 13 minutes and 15 seconds.
Give or take 10-20 seconds.
Any thoughts??? coffee drink
