Hello from Down Under
mick_in_oz
Hey everyone from sunny Queensland Australia, I've been lurking for a while with thoughts of a drum roaster build, but thought it impolite to throw a barrage of questions up without the initial introductions.

I've never roasted a single bean in my life, but have run plenty through the grinder and as with my quest to always find something better or make it better or modify something to do a different job, a coffee roaster seems like a worthy project, to help maintain my coffee addiction :-)

Howdy Mick! Big Welcome to HRO. Lots of great roasting and roaster building intel with our incredibly talented group at your service. No question too simple or too complex for us. If we don't know the answer we'll make it up, just kidding.

Thanks for all the welcomes!

My background is as an electronics technician in 2-way radio, but due to geographical location we end up working on a huge variety of stuff.

I've got a bunch of electronics based questions to come all aimed towards an automated roaster using the later version of Artisan.

The roaster idea came from a sales guy at the place I buy my roasted beans from showing me a Hottop. I bit of digging about had me find the Quest M3, which I love the look of, and then I saw a heatgun based roaster that I thought was very clever, but I know the noise would annoy me a lil too much, but the sound of the beans running about in a drum sounded like something that would almost be therapeutic, plus I love to build serious stuff. with a full workshop, Mill, Lathe, TIG, MIG etc etc etc all at hand nothing is really out of reach.

I've started a spreadsheet to keep track of information and links and what not but it still has a few vacant areas that need filling before we get to a firm set of guidelines for the collecting of parts and starting the building of the hardware.

Time to start posting questions it would seem :-)

I think there always was a character limit on the shouts. Meant to be short messages.

Thanks for getting the site back up. Only issue I've found is the quote button seems to just dump the whole thread. Well edit is working since I put ever instead of every and I could edit the pos

I was trying to repair postfix to get email working again and the reinstall broke and took down the whole server.

That's great news that you were able to get things recovered and back up and running. Any idea what caused your server to explode?

I apologise for the downtime. My server exploded...
