Whole roaster is original and I hope to find someone who can really appreciate the machine and will use this for sample roasting again.

    Let me know if you have any interest

    That is pretty cool. Quick question..why is the "wheel" wobbling so much on the left side?

    Well it's the original wheel so approx 90+ years old. And it's cast iron so hard to straighten if possible at all.

    After all of the work you're doing on it and the testing, do you think you'll be able to force yourself to actually sell it?

    If all works well and I have made a few roasts I think selling is the only option to give the machine the best life! With me it would be stored. Although I attend markets to sell my beans and the roaster would be a great eye catcher, but I do this only a few times a year.
