Some pictures of the finished (although not bolted together) roaster…

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

All the major parts of the roaster are done, the blower is here and bolted down and I am putting in the final wires for the control panel. I have included some pictures of the main parts of the roaster below. Obviously we are not done putting them together, but it is exciting to see them all ready to go. All that is left after we bolt everything together is to put the insulation shell on. The sheet metal fabricator is finishing the insulation shell as I type this and the insulation is here so once we get the shell it will be a quick process of attaching it to the roaster. Everything should be in and up and running by the beginning or middle of next week. This is the most exciting part of new roaster construction and I am looking forward to getting started. I will keep posting pictures as we are installing it throughout the week, so check back soon.
