[Homeroast] WBP Falling Apart?

I've seen pics of them with glass lantern chimneys, soup cans as well as the bread tube. Anything that fits, is tall enough to keep the beans from flying out, and will not melt or catch fire would probably be OK.

Subject: [Homeroast] WBP Falling Apart?

It's been a while, but while I've been silent, I've been lurking a bit.  My
roasting habits are single roasts in the trusty WBPI, roughly every other
day.  The other night when I dumped the beans, I saw something fall into the
colander.  Looking, I saw that it was black plastic.  I turned the popper up
under the light and saw, about halfway down, the inner black tube of the
popper is coming out in smallish chunks.  So, now the questions arise.

I don't see any direct danger here, but am I missing something?  I know
that I can remove the top and re-sleeve the popper.  I've seen the pics of
the bread tube atop a beautifully frankensteined WBP1.  Would that be
viable?  Other repair options for the existing plastic/bakelite?  Other
options on adapting?

Thanks all,
