Another electric 1kg roaster
danst
This is my old Ugly roaster, in fact up to 700g greens :
https://forum.hom...rowstart=0

After almost 5 years of roasting I decided to make a new one. 50% larger.

Why ? I´d like to have a roaster that is capable of roasting in batches with 500-1000g result.

I have positive experience with Ugly 600, so I use this model and I change it a bit.

The changes :

Drum 219mm x 190mm (dia x length) , 3 mm stainless. (Up to 1200g greens ?), intended mostly for 630 and 950g batches.
Perforated material is very difficult to obtain, so I use now solid drum design. But with large diameter and perforated back (RV 3-5).
The frontplate not welded- only screws, it can be replaced with another one.
There is stainless only on drum and frontplate (4mm thick at first).
I believe the roaster don't need 100kg...

I need to make the roaster group shorter (room space reason), so I use a new smaller chaff cyclone.
The fan must be new, with smaller diameter.
I use a new short drum motor with angled gearbox.

The heating is the same , with main part doubled. The total output close to 4 kW.

I use old cooling fan and electronic of Ugly I (3 probes PT1000 and RpI with my SW). I make (I hope) motor powered cooling tray.
With other details -I have no precise idea, some things must be solved on the fly...

I must complete parts and then recycle the old roaster, without big dwell time.

With limiting tools and skills it´d be ugly again, I hope without functional compromises.....
(toy welder and 1mm sheet metal - it´s a pure fun)

Here some pictures of progress:

Make sure your filename is normal and without spaces or special characters. Do not use the "preview post" or "Preview reply" button. It somehow causes problems with the images. You can have a file as large as 10MB.

No special characters and spaces, only numbers. I try a to z only.
Nothing.

And now longer name.
And another, It goes now, I must get only one picture and repeat it by editing, although it ´d be max 8 together.
(It was only 7 but failed)

And the answer is : the 7. image caused problem, after opening and saving (ungchanged) it goes now.

Sorry, bad luck, it is too much needless replays.

Odd problem and I am glad it works for you now. The system is Linux based so I usually suggest avoiding Linux reserved characters like / > < | : &.
