1  I recently received a new plaything: A fine refurbished Behmor from Mr.
John Chocolate Nanci, Alchemist at large. The drum has five squares to the
inch. I presume this is the fine one rather than the original one as I can't
imagine any beans getting stuck in it. Could someone please confirm for me
that that is correct?
2  Anyone have a reasonably priced Variac or buck & boost transformer to
sell? What Variac should I look for? I'm assuming I need 1.75 kVA or so.
3  I burnt up my old heat gun. (The duct tape on the air vents to increase
heat only worked for solong - HA!) What are the current recommendations? I
don't mind looking at "the best" but would also entertain suggestions as to
the "best bang for the buck".
4  When brewing instructions call for heaping tablespoons or for SCAA
scoops, are they likely referring to grounds or beans before grinding?

So it looks like you do have the regular mesh basket. And yes, smaller  
beans will find their way thru the whole. One of my favorite beans,  
Idido Misty Valley, definitely looses some beans in the regular  
basket. I mostly (but not always) use the finer mesh basket.
