  • Behmor Drum Lid Broken

    Can anyone suggest what to do. I cleaned the drum today after roasting, and the lid fell off. The little metal wire that was holding it in place just got detached. I have no idea what to do. I am guessing it can be soldered or welded on if soldering is not appropriate but wanted to check here first before doing anything stupid and destroying it completely. I have no idea where to get the replacement if needed. Bought my Behmor here about 1.5year ago.

      I get that :-)

      I was hoping it won't come to that stage.

        G'day jabbba...

        You know those very small stainless steel chains that you sometimes see in pet stores and the like; don't see why you couldn't grab one of these, open and remove a couple of links and then position them appropriately as hinge points back on the drum and re-close. Have done this sort of thing many times on small devices and works a treat...

              That's a great idea Mal, as long as the chain is indeed stainless steel. Galvanized or chrome plated chain would be a bad idea though.

                Take two of the most smallest keyrings, put each aside of the double middle-bar and fiddle tease according to the drum-ring, I bought this week a second hand 1600 and these had the same problem, and solved it today with two of these rings and yes the are nickel plated "so what" ??

                Enjoy!

                  Many (Maybe even most?) chrome platings are not food safe. Additionally; cheap platings commonly delaminate/flake off both when the part has been bent or when the part is subjected to high heat. Combine those two and the chances are even higher that delamination/flaking will occur.

                    So what again, what do you think that there will end-up in the cup? right, nothing! Or do you thinks there will be flakes in your espresso?
                    But only for You I made a pair of others (the rings where to loose) see the picture for some detail. Stainless steel.
