    R.I.P. Behmor drum

    You roasted well old friend.

    5-6 years of roasting fun.

    Last run - 1.7Kg in 3 batches.

    Decent innings! You could MacGiver a fix with a couple of screws and washers. Or it might be just fine without.

    Regardless a replacement I think is quite cheap.

    Cheers

      Will see what I can come up with.
      Perhaps a Franken-behmor-monster. 🤣

      Might see if I can find my old bread maker as well. Will need to recreate the bucket cooler if that happens. Dangerous trip to Bunnings = spending spree on unbeknownst "needs"

        Andy sells replacements. I had mine replaced last year, didn't cost that much.

        Good luck if you can Macgyver it though. 

          Thank you for the heads up Dan. I will inquire to Andy about replacement.

          I wouldn't mind dual Behmor Roasters so maybe a new drum to get the old one going and a new model with more controls.

            Full disclosure: I had been for some time been shaking the beans in the drum post-roasting to further de-chaff and cool them. (Does a good job).

            So I can confirm these drums are well made and have gone above and beyond.

              I assumed everyone shook the beans in the drum post roast to help de-chaff a bit?

                    I doubt it was the shaking that caused the vane to come off. Not much mass in there. Probably just unlucky the weld let go.

                      Andy has nicely priced replacement drums 🥁 so I should be back up and roasting again in no time.
