I'm building a KKTO for a member

I have started another KKTO build & Bean Cooler for an enthusiast
Today I completed the cooler

I used a 13 lt bucket as the HELLER brand exhaust fan fitted snugly
Holes drilled for exhaust and opposite the power cord entry

[attachimg=1]

I used a wash basin and cut the bottom out for the sift unit to fit into it

[attachimg=2]

The fully assembled unit

[attachimg=3]

During the build I will post photos as it's happening as there will be a few small changes with the base and I will make a wire type agitator

Where's the sift unit from KK, and what is it made out of?
Looks a bit plasticy - is it alright with beans in contact at 200C+ temps?

Cheers.

Cheers.

All from bunnings
The perforated section is a hard plastic seed or soil sift
I an pretty sure it will be OK for heat and if not the design lends itself to interchange just about any metal colander type if required

Thanks. Might get around to sorting my bean cooler out again one day and it is always good to get inspiration from successful projects here

With that in mind I have given the new owner two options
By inserting a stainless steel ring and using the left over colander insert from the pot set I came up with this

Yes I have enough parts to make a few more
This pot set was supplied by the owner
However they come up from time to time on Gumtree and eBay

I will post photos of the next build just completed later tonight

I found the following sieve on E Bay: 1/8 Inch Mesh Classifier sieve for Gold Prospecting, Mining, Panning, was a bit expensive but works really good.

This second build differs a little cosmetically to Gouly's roaster although the aim is still the same

I used a solid piece of Acacial wood ( no glue ) that was formally a chopping board in another life
And I manufactured a wire type double agitator blade & more streamlined auto centre metal stays

Gouly just came over to show off his roast and do a roast while here under my watchful eye

Also to show off his cooler and cooling sieve

Took a couple of snap shots for the members
Fantastic roast Gouly

The preferred ones are the Arcosteel set
They are made with thicker steel

If you chose another set get 240mm dia and be certain that the handles are spot welded not riveted
And the insert not to deep

I have purchased a brand new Acosteel pasta 24cm set up from Ebay and look like I have a second hand one.
I will pass them onto any-one interested in building a KKTO. I know they are as rare as hens teeth, so I was very lucky to find them. :)

Great thread,
 I`m looking at building a KKTO type roaster,I have collected a few bits and pieces so far,
How much gap should there be between the bottom of the insert and the pot or false floor ?
I have a couple of pots that are different depths and my insert fits them both.

Thanks for the question

When calculating the false floor plate depth fitting distance
Aim for a roast chamber total volume for both pots and including the Turbo Oven dome of between 7 and 9 litres

However in noting the technical aspect of volume one only needs as little as 10 mm distance from the bottom of the perforated insert to the false floor plate

Excellent build KK! I see many new ideas here to add to my KKTO style roaster. The KKTO design is proven and works very reliably.
