Paul, I'd suggest you save your $70 plus shipping
on a HWG---the modification which someone linked
is simple and will turn your WBII into a
powerhouse. Then you can spend the $70 on beans.
I used a WBII for about 9 months until Bob
Holland sent me a WBI. The older machine (WBI)
is built like a tank, and there is a very simple
mod (moving one wire!) which will allow you to
turn the heating element on and off. With this
unit, I can roast 2/3 cup at a time, hear all the
cracks, fine-tune the profile, cool down in the
popper (not too well, since there's so much metal
in the unit--it stays warm for awhile)...heck,
anything you can do with a HWG.
Of course, if money's not an issue and you want
convenience PLUS the best coffee in the world, go
ahead an order the roaster from Tom. It probably
won't do you wrong, but you can do better for
