1) From: Sean Cary
I just ruined some aged Sumatra Mandheling...my modded SC keeps stopping
now, I have to lift the CO and push on the modded shaft to get it stirring
again.  It never did this before - back to the drawing board!
So I have a melange roasted Sumatra with burnt tips...
Was an odd roast anyway - but with the addition of the modded SC and my lack
of practice for the past 7 months...all is adding up to crappy roasts.

Ouch - that always hurts. The recent roast I ruined (roasted too dark) was
partly (forget what else) Panama Boquette. At first, I thought it was fine -
then after a rest, it was obviously way too roasted. Now, I could have
cried.. but a friend of mine likes dark roasted coffee, so I'll give it to
her, with a caveat that it MIGHT be awful.

Sean,
Maybe washer(s) binding with the deck of the SC? Try adjusting the play and
then run it with a load of pinto beans as a test.
If that doesn't get you going, I'd be glad to mail you my original plastic
shaft so you could start over.

I think I can tell the difference between the taste of coffee and that of
chocolate.

I have to check it over - luckily I can turn off the heat now!
I have on old shaft with the metal screw in it should I need to revert
back...  I am also thinking of getting a bread machine and using that...  My
wife volunteers in a thrift shop, going to ask her to score one for me.

My SC/TO setup.  I do not use the Stir Crazy heat.  Don't need it.  I roast=
ed today in 20* weather.  No problems with the SC/TO.  The operator, well t=
hat's a different story!

Sean,  I bet your arms are stopping because beans are getting trapped betwe=
en the arm and the roast pan.  Just make sure the arms are almost touching =
ever so lightly the roast pan and you should be ok.  Also they can get trap=
ped where the arm bends down from the center bolt.  Need to make sure the b=
end in the arm is again almost touching the roast pan.

My setup works very well with no hiccups what so ever.  I do want to do two=
 things though.  I want thinner stirring arms for smaller loads as the arms=
 I have now sort of push the beans around until they start to get lighter. =
 Then the fan helps to 'push' them over the arms.  1/2 to 1lb. though no pr=
oblem.  Another thing I want to do is add two stirring arms(for a total of =
four) just to churn things better.

I'm going out on a limb here but I bet it might be a very tasty roast.

It was flat and grassy this morning...letting it sit a day or three before I
try it again.
