But there was a matching green thing so I couldn't say no.  >:D

Currently renovating a piece of bowling alley for these toys to live on. Getting quotes on a new shed to house the Silver Streak and the Slayer but council will be my only barrier to deal with as my space is tight where I want to build the new coffee cave.

Thanks Kev

2.6meters of lane is going to be the bench top, put the first coat of varnish on today after much sanding and destroying a saw blade hitting all the hidden screw nails  :-[ squaring it up.

BrettH - drugs are bad, just put your head in a bag of freshly roasted coffee and breath in deep, an instant relax.

Pfft... Ya saw is soft.. Tungsten eh! 

Drugs ARE bad but they're keeping me alive (Addison's).  They reckon the excessive amount of coffee I drank masked the effects of Addison's thus making my diagnosis more prolonged... I called it self-curing (both senses of the phrase)!  Inhalation is a good back-up!

Thats adrenal type stuff isn't it, low blood pressure etc, can see where coffee could mask it.

Do the drugs and enjoy the coffee, all in moderation.

Hi Lacehim

Yep social at my place once I get everything up and running.

Monday the roaster is off to get its new gas train and software, about 2 weeks before I get her back. In that time I will have started the shed build, well the slab should be down (as long as I can get council to work with me).

About 6 weeks in total and it should all be up and running, thats the plan.

Then, open crema day/weekend bring your green and brown play on the roaster play on the slayer  :thumb:

It sure is exciting. :)  I've been getting a lot of your roasted beans through C-man and they have been great so far. :)  I'll have to get some green and get roasting again while you're renovating.

Thanks Michael

Hopefully the process isn't to much trouble.

Did go to Bunnings today and buy all the stuff to do a temporary fit, so slayer should be up and running by Friday.

Can't leave a new toy just sitting there teasing me  ;D.

@Lacehim, roasting some nice beans to cover the roaster down time, check with c-man, he might share?

WOW! I wouldnt have picked that colour in a million years for coffee hardware, yet it looks awesome.

Nearly worth a trip south just to have a look when your setup is complete!

Already got my order in with C-Man.  I got him to organise me 500gm Zambia terranova (I liked this previously when I roasted it) and to treat myself 500gm Ninety Plus - Ethiopian Nekisse :)

Good luck with the build mate!  Progress photos are a must! ;)

All good Lacehim, C-man messaged me, will post some pictures of todays roasting in the roasting thread.

Thought I would add some extra photos now I have unwrapped the portafilters and moved the slayer inside.

Gold Coast tomorrow for roaster pimping  :thumb:

Arrange a sparky on Tuesday to put in a small sub board and the 32amp required outlet for the slayer.

Looking amazing!!  Who services slayers on the Sunny Coast or is that another learning curve?

Hi BrettH

Was a concern when we looked into them after all the stories of high maintenance on versions 1 and 2.

Version 3 is no longer mechanical and is good for a million cycles, the machines are super simple inside and lay out is very clean.  Any good tec would be able to service them.  They also come with a brilliant online owners manual with video links to setting up the machine through to servicing step by step, really well done.
Add in a well laid out service schedule outline, and I can't see any problems.

I will take some photos of the internals to show the clean design.

Get QM0996 up for a drive if you need repairs! lol.

Nice machine, love the handles and the green is growing on me.  Certainly looks different and stands out!   :thumb:

Your a lucky bloke, my wife would go mental if I brought that home (and a big roaster too! :) ).

Very cool! Also, I do like your colour very much but it wouldn't be my first choice.  Photos would be much appreciated.
