Subject: Bought a roaster, does anyone know what it is
 

So, I already posted this on coffeeforums, but no one has had any idea.  

After spending several months roasting for farmers markets on a 2 barrel Probat sample roaster, I lucked into finding a used roaster in an espresso machine store, which will cut my roasting time from 30 hours a week to less than 2. The shop owner had bought it used from one of his clients who was selling their business and knew nothing about it. He said he had been told it was custom made in South Carolina, though the Asian numbers on the temperature gauges make me skeptical. I decided to buy it anyway, and pray everything works as it should.

Has anyone ever seen this before? Know the brand? I was told it was 5kg, but looks more like 2.

Any insight or words of wisdom would be great.

Thanks,
Chris

Don't know the name, but it looks like it would hold 10 lbs. beans to roast.  Looks bigger than a 4 pounder.

Could be wrong but it looks a lot like a roaster North coffee sells.

Looks like an older model of one of their 5 kg roasters.
