Topic: WBP Falling Apart? (2 msgs / 82 lines)
1) From: Jason Brooks
It's been a while, but while I've been silent, I've been lurking a bit.  My
roasting habits are single roasts in the trusty WBPI, roughly every other
day.  The other night when I dumped the beans, I saw something fall into the
colander.  Looking, I saw that it was black plastic.  I turned the popper up
under the light and saw, about halfway down, the inner black tube of the
popper is coming out in smallish chunks.  So, now the questions arise.
I don't see any direct danger here, but am I missing something?   I know
that I can remove the top and re-sleeve the popper.  I've seen the pics of
the bread tube atop a beautifully frankensteined WBP1.  Would that be
viable?  Other repair options for the existing plastic/bakelite?  Other
options on adapting?
Thanks all,
Jason

I've seen pics of them with glass lantern chimneys, soup cans as well as th=
e bread tube. Anything that fits, is tall enough to keep the beans from fly=
ing out, and will not melt or catch fire would probably be OK.
