BTW, where
ya hail from?
Live in N. Indiana (Fort Wayne, Huntington area), all my life; sell and
electrically specify "automation" for  "Industry"; sold "PID" (what we
refer to as "digital temp. control"!) for many years (heaters,
Industrial ovens, SSR, etc were also a "small part of our "arsenal")   ;
was hugely surprised to find that "PID" was the "magic" to modify some
(notably Silvia) Espresso machines and some roasters as well!
BTW, Mike, nice job modifying your Rosto = very clean!
Nice start. Almost seems like a CSA application. :-)
CSA (?) Don't know if I'd be approved in Canada; maybe UL? :-)
Was asked if I had a Vac Pot.......no not yet; another "coffee
experience" awaits.
Was also asked about FR+ (8);
Seems a very solid performer based on my very limited experience; only
"drawback" is size of roast capability. Cooling cycle very good and
variac allows some control; would be very interested in all your
thoughts re: splitting fan circuit? May try HG/DB when weather breaks
(was 50F today!) and I have more roasting experience.
Thank You all for your kind welcome.
Jeff
