    What is the desired rate of rotation for roasting? I need to figure an inexpensive way to rotate the drum, and wonder if there are any good ideas?

    Hi Dan, anything from about 40RPM -60RPM will be ideal. Though you can actually do it with as low as about 10 RPM. You’ll get more consistent results however above 40RPM. Finally, whatever method you devise, make sure you can pull about 15-inch pounds of torque. Pretty much any kind of motor that meets those specs will do the job.
