Can someone help me for using forced propane burner as my heating element. I rather want to use lpg than electric. Do you think it would work

DIY 002 Roaster Kit
hankua
Same one on YouTube and he posted here awhile back. I set up a meeting last month for a demo at his friend's cafe; Coffee Play in Taichung. The guys name is Sonny Tsai, and he brought all the assorted parts and put it together for me on a table. Then he roasted a batch on a tiny gas camp burner outside on the sidewalk.

I thought it was very well made and easy to take apart or modify. One of the really cool things is he has a charcoal adaptor (real wood charcoal) that works; and I tasted some coffee roasted with the method. Other thing, it's well insulated with ceramic fiber.

It's kind of pricy, heavy, well made, and something that might appeal to the homeroasters crowd as it's in kit form. The capacity might be a bit overstated, didn't check it as I'm probably not a potential buyer. Sonny hasn't sold a ton of these and none to the US, but using PayPal should be safe.

Sonny posted here, but ran afoul of the forum rules. His YouTube video's can be found by searching "DIY 002 coffee roaster". An in-person hands on observation goes a long way, if someone was really seriously considering his machine. Like I said, the DIY might have some appeal to a member who wants some hands on experience, but doesn't have the tools or know how with metalworking. It's good to have options, and he appears to be experimenting with electric elements according to his blog.

There are coffee roasters, cafe's with coffee roasters, commercial coffee roaster manufacturers, smaller roaster builders such as: Quest m3, Huky, Rotate Fun, Bullet R1, Mercury, DIY 002, and more in Taiwan. It's impressive indeed, especially in the roasting end of the spectrum.

Is this the same roaster?

http://forum.home...post_60625

I think it is a great idea but he should setup a web site for information and selling. He is welcome to post here anytime but direct selling using this site is against the forum rules.

Yup, that's it!

The builder is somewhat similar to Huky500's Mr. Li. Both gentlemen have limited English abilities, although the DIY 002 builder has a blog describing his journey (in Chinese). And google translate does a less than optimal job of translation.

There is no web site for the Huky500 or the DIY002. Interested customers have to deal directly with both builders regarding questions.

Asked for a quote and all I can say is that this guy is overestimating his work... can't sell raw materials for the price of a Huky...

If your saying it's a bit expensive I'd agree. But as a Huky owner, the DIY has a real gear motor, chaff collector, standard bearings, heavy plate construction. Contrast that to the lightweight Huky with toy gear motor and hacked chaff collector; maybe the increased price is justified?

Or possibly it needs to be priced at or below a Huky?

Don't get me wrong, Huky's have stood the test of time and punishment far beyond they're intended use. They have an extremely loyal following, for good reason.

When I get a Huky, I get a wonderful masterpiece of hand crafting, while this pile of tin, to assemble yourself... don't inspire value, don't let me wrong...
Anyway, I can roast 800 grams for far less money, if we talk about crafting myself.

Pile of tin? While I will agree some may find spinning some screws to get their roaster assembled distasteful, calling it a pile of tin is a little harsh. People are routinely diy assembling a good portion of their furniture and sports appliances these days from whole office desks, book shelves, bicycles, you name it so diy kit assembly isn't a dis qualifier to most. As far as value for the money? The Huky and DIY 002 are miles apart. For just one example, the DIY 002 is an insulated, double wall design with construction features similar to how a serious shop roaster is constructed and that would be just the beginning of the differences.

In watching the youtube video, it looks like a very well engineered and thought out design. If I hadn't already built my 1 lb drum from scratch, I would seriously consider this roaster.

Sorry, would not mean to be disrespectful, surely language barrier.
All my roasters you see listed in my signature are DIY or the commercial models are heavily modified.

Probably the issue is from the great degree of details he give when presenting the "pile of tin" :)
When you see the presentation of a Huky, you see a shining final product that inspire me a Harley Davidson.
When I see him mounting the DIY 002, I see the "insulated, double wall" as a piece of insulating ceramic fiber costing $4, (just bought 1.5 sqm these days for my future roaster, cost was less than $20), and another piece of tin that probably would cost ME less than $5 to supply, ready cut, bent and holes done.
So, adding the parts I think the total cost of DIY 002 is maybe less than 1/4 of the asked value. 400% profit is too much for any market. sorry.

One of the 'rules' Ginny had was this.
If you don't own something you can't bash it.
After I sold my HT, I couldn't say anything bad about it.

I think this applies here.

I'm sorry for not realizing that he had used the term "pile of tin" in his write up of the roaster. I had assumed you were using the term as a pejorative against it being a pile of metal with little value but such was not the case.

As far as his price point versus product delivered. I will agree it seems steep when comparing what is delivered with a fully functional North 500 gram drum roaster complete with controls. So your point on this is valid.

Please continue to contribute to our forums, we need all we can muster!

Everyone is welcome to post criticisms of products they don't own as long as it is constructive, accurate and serves a purpose. This helps all of us to make buying decisions. Ginny's concern was to discourage people from making negative comments about a roaster without it serving a purpose.

Any idea what the price is? I am guessing the shipping will be very high too.

I'm seeing 50,000 NT which converts to around $1600.00 without shipping for the base model without trier or other enhancements. Not sure what shipping would be.

I have the shipping price, not with me at the moment: @$165 usd by EMS air I think.

And the roaster price, same notebook. The pricing part is a tad complicated in that PayPal is going to charge the seller a fee, and hopefully would accept payment in usd. Otherwise the buyer would be on the hook for PayPal exchange rate fees/charges.

One important aspect of the design, it uses a perforated drum and the optional solid drum still has scattered holes as well.

For me the quote was $1800 + $152 shipping to EU + $35 bank fees, no word about PP.

I was just wondering the price range for something like that. I think I will keep my KKTO Turbo roaster. It meets my needs for now.

I do like the bolt together design of this DIY 002 roaster. One of the big stumbling blocks for me building a drum roaster is the welding and having machinist experience or a friend who owns a machine shop.
