Hi,

I have been working/thinking about making my own coffee roaster for 2 years now, and after more hours than i would like to count its soon too be finished, but its ready for its first roast, only waiting for the beans to arrive.

So i would like to precent my project as a journey starting from ideas to pictures (and soon videos) of the real thing!

The first drawing dates back to mid 2010,

If you're limited by the restrictions here, why not use an image hosting service or similar to put the attachments on?   Or sign up for a free blogging service and write the posts there, then come back here with links?

Just change your images to .gif format (if .jpg), and lower the dpi and image pixel width and height until you get to within the 75kb limit.  Easy enough to do with most graphics programs.  I've done it many times to fit within the image size requirements here on CG.

I think Homeroasters_dot_org currently allows 175k, and they seem to have more DIY drum roasters in
progress at the present time....if that's any help..

That's true, but Sverre (SimonSays) has a beautiful 6 page thread with excellent pics on the Home Barista forums.
