Pffft!  I'll be in class.... Phooey!  Well luckily possibly because every time I visit Chris I am tempted far too much.  Don't get me wrong, I love Mr Unico Splendor but that dual gauge Galetea makes me weak at the knees and the Stratega... Why didn't I buy one on special... WHY... oh that's right. I'm a responsible husband and father now... Time for a reward surely???

Thanks for catching up with me today Paul, I really enjoyed our little impromptu meeting!

So, I've got pretty much all the bits now. I'll take a photo in a day or so. Going to try and catch up with Lacehim sometime in the next week to start the actual build process.

Picked up my wiper motor today. $20.

Will post photos as soon as I can.

Need to see if I have a spare transformer lying around and pop down to Jaycar to get a plug.

You can also have one of a few cooler inserts that I am giving away on Sunday
The roaster is only the start of your build journey

I have attached a PDF of the cooler build stages

Not sure yet Brett, I'll be catching a lift with Lacehim (hope that's still OK!) so I'll depend on him!

Now I need to figure out how to mate the motor to a driveshaft and keep it in the roast chamber rather than falling out with the beans.

Now I need to figure out how to mate the motor to a driveshaft and keep it in the roast chamber rather than falling out with the beans.

Hence the reason I offered you an older type driveshaft at cost
Its done like this -
1) See the nut on the motor - tighten it down so it does not work loose
2) place a 1/4 inch drive socket on it - this allows the square section to face towards the shaft
3) calculate the distance / gap required for connection without a need to cut the drive shaft down

And you have a roaster

I can see how most of that works Paul.

I'm looking at the drive shaft on the KK site now, but I'm having trouble picturing how it connects to the roast chamber pot in a way that the drive shaft and agitator stays in the pot?

The shaft feeds in from the underside of the perforated pot
It has a flair so it stops at a certain spot
The blade is fitted from the inside of the pot and its locked in to place
All it can do then is spin
The springs work like a flexible pendulum bearing

Kelsey,

I'll PM you re sunday.  aiming for to arrive early maximise the time down there and head home early ish to avoid the peak traffic.

Will be home for a few days if you fancy a drive up, you can see my KKTO, either that or KK might have one at the Sunday meet for you to see.

Paul, in the first pic, the blackened wider bit of the drive shaft that's right on the bottom of the pot - is that the flare you mentioned?

If so, I see now how it works, but don't recall that being part of the drive shaft you showed me the other day?

Yes that is the flare but we also use a copper washer as well
Its supplied as part of the set

I've found a 12v 4.5amp power supply in my junk boxes, so now I'm hunting around for a 'quick connect' between the motor and the PS.

This site has an example: http://monsterguts.com/index.php?act=viewProd&productId=103

I've had a look on Jaycar and only saw 'female spade' ends, but not an entire cable as per the above link - i.e. female spade ends, cable and power supply connector.

Is there anywhere else I should look or a way to achieve this without soldering?

For $2.49 its worth every cent, and perfect for the job

Totally agree!

For once, it's not about the expense - it's a U.S. site so I don't know if I'd get it before Christmas!

Ideally I'm looking around for somewhere locally I can get it.

That site is almost ideal for our purposes in many respects too - they've got some great package deals.

It's apparently not possible to purchase that cable pre-made in Australia. Or at least, in Caloundra!   ;D

But I have acquired all the bits to re-create it in an even more useful fashion:



Rather than sacrifice the power supply by permanently wiring it to the motor, I've decided to go for a plug-and-cable system similar to KK's design - which is superior for mobility, safety and replacement of parts.

I've got two minor roadblocks at this stage:
  • I don't know which is the ground, high speed, low speed and (I assume) parking terminal
  • I don't have a soldering iron any more (and any skill died around the time Dick Smith stopped selling electronic kits) :D
