wow, you put a lot of engineering into this build. is the piping for air – to keep the drum cool? How well does that feature work. i have never seen one with this many features. – not even the store bought ones.

Very nice build Adrian.

Is the piping for blowing clean the paper on constantly during use, or only if needed?
what kind of motor did you use on the drive for the feeder belt?

I am sure you will get many hours of great use out of it?

What size drive motor did you use?

Best reg
