Apparently this roaster was sold in 2018. I was interested in it too and looked at the comments on "roast video #8"

I recall seeing a post from another Forum member letting us know that roasterguy passed away at the end of 2018. I noticed that he signed one of his earlier posts with his real name ( Victor Allen Mondry ) and I did a Google search and there is an obituary for him. The obituary mentioned that he was involved with all sorts of things related to coffee.

For that reason, I am going to close this thread.
