1) From: R Nepsund
I got an old pair of nylons from somebody and cut a section out.   I
goes around the heat gun barrel and over the air inlet vents.  I just
have to occasionally blow or wipe the chaff off.

II have used burlap, socks and nylon, but the best thing I have found is
very fine screen made into a little cage around the intake. I found every
thing but the screen gets clogged with dust and smoke. With the screen, even
if some chaff gets sucked onto the screen there are many more holes not
blocked.

Malvene,
I use a shield to keep the chaff from flying back near the heatgun intake
vent. Here's a link to a couple of photos:
I cut the shield from an inexpensive aluminum cookie serving platter --
thicker than a pie pan, but still thin enough to cut with scissors. This
keeps 99% of the chaff away from the heatgun vent and does not reduce the
air intake.

John,
I like your setup.
I was wondering about placement of the probe in the bean mass. Any
chance of posting a picture of that?
Thanks again,
Brian
