Topic: Poppery II Air Popper (6 msgs / 77 lines)
1) From: cja
What air popper is  best to use? I just picked up a Poppery II from the 
thrift store. That name rang a bell from past postings.

2) From: Eddie Dove
The Poppery and the Poppery II are the most venerated, with the original
Poppery (I) being the most sought after due to its reputation as a "tank".
You made a good find!  The Wearever Popcorn Pumper of years gone by also
holds a position of high esteem.

Besides being built like a tank the Original Poppery (P1) is about the
easiest to mod' because of AC rather than DC fan...

first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment

I believe the old original 'Pumper' had line voltage AC fan motor
similar to the P1.  Either of these two are superb machines as is, or
as a starting point for a serious roaster.

The same applies to the earlier of the Wear-ever Pumpers, Cat. No. 
72000. I actually prefer the 72000 Wear-ever over the P1 Poppery as it 
is less "discovered" by the homeroasting community and hence goes for 
about half the price of a P1 on Ebay. I have found that comparing the 
two with the fan voltage of each boosted to 160VDC the Wear-ever is 
only about 1oz less in the load of beans that can be circulated.

How much do you loft at a practical maximum?
What do you use for your boost?
My Variac'll do 140; I'd love to have a fixed 160 and then dimmer that.
