My 1kg Electric Air Roaster build
greencardigan
Not sure. I will spend time getting the heating elements and heat chamber better this time and go from there.

I've decided I want to try electric again before I turn to gas.

... I am seriously considering scrapping the BM and building another 3/4 kg (1.5 pound) electric air roaster. Many advantages but a few disadvantages. More controllable, better mixing, easy cooling, lees chaff mess with chaff collector, no need handle hot parts with gloves. Downsides are less efficient (will need approx 3.5 - 4 KW of heating) and more expensive.


You probably write exactly about this:

If the shipping costs were not so high, I would have sent it to you.
And if you have a weak electricity supply then I have a friend of an electrician in Woollahra.

That looks fantastic!

Here's my lame version.

And yes, I would have to get a 15A 240V circuit installed sometime.

On youtube I posted some of my videos.
Many of you have already seen them.
I focused mainly on showing the deficiencies of some of my constructions, I have corrected these shortcomings later.
Their sense was not to show how well it works, but what needs to be improved.
I hope it was so understood because I added a short explanation to the video.

My philosophy is a bit different than the OGH roaster, I think we have the same opinion with Brad. That's why I do not even create my own thread.
Now it's 5 years since I bought my first TC4 and thanks to Brad I use aArtisanQ_PID.
Previously, I used manual control and Artisan on PC.
I have not enough patience to write extensive contributions, not the ability to write in this language.

But I think it will not be a big problem to fix Brad's lame roaster, I'd like to help and try it out beforehand.
And perhaps also make further bigger.

Nothing is resistant to improper handling.
To TC4 I connected a smaller roaster 80/70mm, electric cord to the heating I forgot to replace.
There is not much to guess what happened.
Now I can take pictures of how to make a new heater 240V/4kW.
