Sure -
3/4 pound of beans
Preheat the sides and then the bottom of the stainless steel popper 
until there is some smoke.
Put the heat on pretty low and add the beans.
Shake a lot at first, then less, for a minute or three, depending on how 
much pre-heating you want to do.  (Note that the bearings on the device 
are shot from heavy use: you cannot use the crank; you must shake the 
unit.  Note also that this will require you to use a higher flame than 
you were when the crank still worked, since the popper is often farther 
from the heat source.)
Turn the heat up pretty high (fwoosh, rather than hsss).  Agitate the 
beans frequently.
In perhaps three minutes, you will notice wispy smoke.  When the smoke 
smells grassy, ease off on the flame, a bit, then a bit more, not too 
much though.
Continue agitating and easing off as you approach first crack.  You will 
hear some early cracks.  The flame should be a bit higher than preheat 
level when first crack is really rolling.  You will know you have 
adjusted the flame correctly when you hear no cracking after first crack 
and before second crack, should you want to roast to second crack.
Stop roasting the beans when they are done.  Pour them into a colander 
or a big strainer.  Open the garage door, and cool the beans outside, 
far enough away from the garage that the chaff will not blow back in.
Regards,
Elliott
