The coffee I'm roasting is coming out fine but I have to cut the heat for a minute before charge and still get a fast turn and a fast dry but then I have no heat for ramp up and too much heat for finish..
I'll have to try lower changes around 300-350°
I have no PID temp just my ET and BT probes
I'd like to be able to see the PID temp.
I have a few weeks I guess before the new PID is here..
If your doing small loads I'm not so sure you will get a good BT
Most of the beans are on the lower left side of the drum wall..
What I did was use a 3" long probe..
I filed/ ground the crimps that hold the wire off and pulled the wire out..
I then cut the tubing with a cutoff wheel or tubing cutter..
I then drilled out the tubing from the threaded mount ..
I then bent the tubing to fit..
6" long probe might help so you have extra tubing to experiment with..
I had a piece of metal with the radius I wanted abd used a drill inside the tubing 1/8" from the bend to stop it from folding in 1/2 and bent a little and pulled drill out a little till I had the 90° bend.. Buy two probes as it took me some practice and ordering from China takes weeks.. These probes were only $5-$6.. Temps looked fine doing two 500G batches today..
