befor deciding on a roller system I used rebar for the drum
shaft. Easy to find and weld.
If you're going to do any machining on it (flats for drive gears, threaded ends 
etc.) or if appearance matters it's hard to beat drill rod.  It's relatively 
rust/corrosion resistant, works easily, welds easily, just generally a good 
material to work with . . .http://www.use-enco.com/search "drill rod"

 That's right! It's been a few years now and I forgot. The rebar
was for a differant prototype that just needed some strong
pieces of metal sticking out from the end plates that a long
"fork" hooked into to roll the basket back and forth in the
oven. I still have a spare basket with drill rod running through
it that sticks through the end plate so that a wing nut holds
the plate to the basket nice and tight and comes off quick.
