This is a multi-part message in MIME format. Ben, Did you also replace the timer with something like a Gray-bar photo = timer? I am not sure of the GB's contact ratings but a relay could be = use to do the heavy work. Vic
This is a multi-part message in MIME format. Just completed 5 batches-still in a learning mode so used lots of gas-heated up the garage-finally figured out how to hear cracks-turn off the bloody drum motor for a second-now got them cracks down to a gnats behind-at last now can roast decent coffee. Having lousy hearing is a bear. Oh the beans are not scorched by turning off the drum motor for a couple of seconds. Did some Col, Kona and Sum Man-about 7# or so.
This is a multi-part message in MIME format. Glad to hear something popping. If you are like me, I have been living = on a learning curve for 65 years so far. There is a Floyd Burton living in my town. But he is shorter than you. Vic

Victor Blackwell wrote: <Snip> No I just removed it, and use switches. I did tear a FR timer apart today looking to see if I could use a full turn (turns about 1/2 turn right now) to get longer times, but no luck. Ben <Snip>
