After the full tear-down and cataloguing of parts, our German went for thorough cleaning and sandblasting. The frame, cabinet, plates and all moving parts received the treatment.
The electronic cabinet was blasted with media, and new holes routed for temperature displays. Times have changed since the machine’s “birth” in 1958 – the integration of roast data capability is the biggest and most obvious change to those in the know.
After this thorough preparation, the roaster and its fittings went into the spray booth to be coated in high temperature primer. Next post we’ll show you the various surface finishes that make our restored machine pop.
