    That is weird, its a solid chunk welded to bars than the drum outer ring.

    Pretty sure a replacement drum is quite cheap, I'm sure Andy will help out.

    Behmor Coffee Roaster
    The bit that separated was the cylindrical bit (that is squared off at the other end and inserts into the motor shaft) from the square metal plate that has a hole in it that the cylindrical bit sits in and is tack welded together. That metal plate is still attached to the bars on the drum.
    It's 5 years old and has roasted just under 200kg of coffee, plus a little bit of cacao and the occasional hazelnuts too. Not bad for the first repair needed.
    New basket/drum has arrived already, great service as always Andy.
    I'll still try and re-weld the shaft bit back on to the original once I borrow a welder, but no stress now if that fails.
    Oddly, fastway delivered the parcel from a regular car instead of a van/truck. Must have had a small parcel round today.
