Morning Ed, I haven't done any green coffee hoarding yet but am hoping the supplies don't end up like the toilet paper isles!

Convection/Turbo Oven Top Conversion
farmroast
For those running a SC-UFO/TO-CO or similar roaster. Just Modified a couple tops. This separates wiring of the fan and heating element. The heating element can then be run into a variac or rheostat or just switched on and off for heat adjustment. Thought I would show some pics. Any questions,please ask.

Here is my power plant that runs my heating element. Element cord plugs into the "Kill A Watt" meter that is plug into a Staco 22amp variac (15amp will work too). The meter monitors watts, amps and volts being used.

With heater guard already removed. To open the top 6 screws are removed. The 3 through the holes under the silicone caps. And the 3 next to the guard cover posts. The fan blade must be removed too (most of the fan blade nuts are normal counter clockwise to loosen but I have seen a couple newer brand/models that are opposite threaded.

Middle section rewired. I leave the thermostat in just to keep holes filled.

Chad I measure the air temp just before it hits the beans. I can get 525+ but I never need to be that hot. Ed
