  1. I've been meaning to mod my Gene CBR-101 roaster for quite a while now, but as with most things I do getting started was the first challenge! The next problem was that both the dimmer and power meter mentioned in the Coffee Time wiki are no longer available so I decided to do something different. I found a power meter (ebay link) and decided to use a motor controller (ebay again). The controller says it's rated at 2000W, but as it's from ebay I'm dubious, but it handles 1250W OK. Anyway it looks like.. And inside The box is possibly on the large size, but it allows for greater heat dissipation than if it was crammed in a tiny box. One thing I noticed when opening my Gene was that they seem to have changed the design from that in the Wiki, the heater connection is arrowed. Checking further the terminal labelled 'Ter4' was at the same potential as the neutral line, meaning the terminal marked 'Heater' is the heaters live connection (arrowed). I've tested it and it works OK, hopefully tomorrow I'll try roasting some beans in it
