Always embarrassing, but I am willing to stand up in my kitchen and
applaud.  The neighbors already think I am nuts - but what a great job you
have on your roaster!

cool!
This method intrigues me.  I have the parts, and I think the motor on  
a BM probably has better longevity than the motor on a SC, the  
gearmotor in a BM is just designed to take such a heavier load.
Could you possibly give an example of the temps you use on your TO  
for a typical profile?

If there is anything worth doing, it's worth doing right.

SWEET!!! Is there any way to get you to provide detailed instructions  
on this so I can make one too? Bread machines are cheap at the local  
thrift stores, and I can't quite tell from the pictures how you've  
done yours. I remember asking about the driveshaft, but you said you  
worked that out. I would LOVE to make an all-in-one unit like that.  
How much can you roast at a time? A pound?
Scot "oh, and can you make it a PowerPoint presentation? With music?"

Scot, Justin    Scot  here is a  pic  of the stir rod and shaft. The shaft
and knuckle I took off an old microphone boom stand pipe I had. It basically
fit over the BM drive shaft and cut to needed length. I drilled through the
BM drive shaft and stir shaft for a small bolt and nut to lock the two
together. The stir rod is just small threaded rod with nuts on each side and
then I ground down the threads to make it more smooth and the nuts too so
the rod stays about an 1/8" off the pan bottom. Depending on how handy you
are and if you have access to small tapping and threading sets there are
more ways of making the same thing. Shaft and stir rods stock available at
most hardware/building stores.
feel free to ask any other question,
Ed
