Topic: Abbott's mixer/engine roaster (13 msgs / 256 lines)
1) From: AlChemist John
I was at he feed store this weekend, and what was out front you may ask?  I 
cast iron cement mixer, stirring vanes, 3 hp motor driven w/ drive 
chain.  Next to it, a 55,000 BTU propane turkey fryer.  Total price just 
over $400.  It's not a jet engine, but a really good start.  Just mount 
them together and you probably could do 10-15 lb  :-)

I WANT IT!!!    Turkey fryers get really hot - especially when they flame 
up ;O)

John,  Probably not cast iron, but sheet steel, still we get the =

rated at 1 million BTU, but they even SOUND like a jet engine.  After =
all, what do you think a jet engine afterburner is? Just a huge weed =
burner.  ;)  To complete the picture you'll need a wheelbarrow to catch =
the roasted beans in. Just drill it full of holes and mount a fan =
underneath.  ;)  It would be a cute rig at the county fair. Dan

I see you know how weak I am - temptation like that is hard to ignore! The 
wed burner is probably going to be cheaper than the Pratt&Whitney :O)

Actually, I think it was cast.  Just didn't look like sheet steel.  No 
seams.  OTOH, I think I was way low on the 55,000 BTU.  That just sounds 
too low.  I know my brewing burner is LOUD.

But could you also use it for mixing concrete?  Maybe a new type of terrazzo
with beans instead of pebbles.  Hey!  A new use for Vietnam beans!

Okay, that clinches it.  Check the bottle that your medicine came it, 
John...  I'm just certain there's a side effect warning for vile puns 
printed there.
Either that, or you need to get back to more decaf...

I don't know it seems to me that would be a step down, only 10-15 lb...
I thought you were going for something really large ;-)
