These are not all that easy to find, I ended up buying new since ones for sale where only about $1000 less then new.

Sure. Sit down, take a deep breath and let it out slowly. $8550, that includes a custom table, SS hopper (which i believe is included now at no cost) and crating and shipping. So call the roaster around $6500. Diedrich roaster are one of the more expensive machines and the Ir-1 just came out this year so I doubt you will find a used one available yet, my serial # is 008.

I saw a used price for the San Fransican 1lb for $5500 this year but it is already sold. http://www.coffeed.com/viewtopic.php?f=33&p=31550
JonR10 has a 1lb Us Roasting Corp machine that sells new for around $5k, the Toper Cafemino 1kg roaster is around $5500. Feima out of Taiwan makes some very nice roasters and their 1 lb is under $3000 and their 1 kg is around $5000, the 1 kg was my second choice for a roaster. http://www.feima.com.tw/en/product.html#b

There are other options for less money like the Sonofresco air roaster but it really has no control over the roast and there is building your own if you have the time. I will say that the Diedrich are worth every penny but understand that it is built to roast all day long and go for years and years, not exactly what a home roaster will put the machine through. If you are thinking about selling coffee I would seriously consider a 2-5kg machine otherwise you will put many hours a day just into roasting and not into business and they cost a small fraction more then a 1-2 lb machine.

So for say 10K you come close to a 2-5 kg Diedrich??
not all that bad that is if you end up selling some to offset the cost?
Thanks for the info where did you have your shipped from and would you have a contact at Diedrich you recommend?
there is a used Diedrich IR# for 12K on ebay??
Thanks Bill

Diedrich is located in Sandpoint Idaho and the roaster was crated and shipped to Philadelphia Pa. Shawn Countreras who is director of sales at Diedrich answered all my many questions and took me seriously even though I was just a home roaster, after many emails and a very long phone conversation I knew I had found the roaster I wanted.

Do take into account that an IR-12 weights 960lbs and would almost certainly need an after burner and commercial gas supply and one day I want one! If you do consider buying a used roaster you will want to know all you can about the machine, for instance the Toper Cafemino does not have control over the gas pressure (heat level), only air flow, there are posts about modding it for control through.

Great! I hope you will document your build, i am sure there will be many that will want to build there own and as you know there is a lot of research into coming up with a plan for this project. I will be very curious as to your final costs and hours in the build, my gut tells me it can't be cheap but the savings is in all the man hours it takes to build. Keep the details coming!
