Yeah mate! There you go.
Motor was bought on amazon (20k reduction ratio) to allow a top speed of 67rpm, next to it in the blue is the fan speed controller (the fan itself is under the bench, connected to the other end of the chaffe collection bucket, and then outdoors).
Gas is a wok outdoor hob, connected to a small lpg bottle.
Still not perfect, the pvc pipe leading to collector gets hot and mangled (I am trying to find a suitable rubber hose to use which is less temperamental with heat)
@Wild Goat thanks for those pictures...brilliant...it wouldn't win any beauty awards but as long as the end result is good roasted coffee beans then i'd chalk that up as a win win win ...i love seeing peoples homebrew projects...keep up the good work...and keep us updated.
Yeah. I've been toasting a Peruvian bean to medium roast which has been coming out beautifully. I used to roast with a heat gun, and the swap to gas was interesting and much more challenging... But 8 am using artisan, and can monitor closely now. Still loads to learn
