Wow, I didn't know something like that would have an adjusment. If it's that
easy I will try and adjust it and get some use out of it. If you have to
take it apart how much should you turn it before you test it since I assume
you would want to put it back together to get an accurate test of the temp.
Thanks for the info

Beware, too, as a modded Poppery I will roast a lot of coffee quickly.  In my opinion, it's too fast.  I've got two Mk. I's, and one roasts to full city + in about 6 to 7 minutes flat.  The other takes almost 10 to do the same.  The faster unit has had a LOT of popcorn use, so maybe the motor isn't producing the full airflow, leading to a hotter airflow stream and a faster roast.  I need to do a bit of back to back at the same ambient, as I've only used the slower unit at cooler (60 deg. F) temps.
A modded PII is likewise quite fast at any temp. over 65.  It just doesn't roast as much (1/2 c. vs. 3/4 c.).
Be careful and have fun.
