Hehe thanks for the kind words folks :) As you can see, the cleanup is 
done http://www.flickr.com/photos/svladcjelli/7065184849/ and the old 
Behmor is still kickin'. I did a few cleaning cycles and one roast of an 
old bean to re-season it since I stripped it down with simply green.

I must say I am impressed with the quality of the Behmor, it weathered 
my stupidity with nary a problem.
