I've been using a Stir Crazy / Turbo Oven (SC/TO) style unit for several years now. I only do 1# batches in it and usually roast 2 batches every two weeks.

For those not familiar with this style - the popcorn popper bottom provides the stirring mechanism while the turbo oven top provides the heat. A springform pan ring provides the spacer between the two. I've built a few of these for others and I usually average about $75 total in cost for them.

This is not mine exactly... but, you get the general idea. The differences are that i cut a hole in the top of my breadmaker and simply stuff the heatgun in the opening. I also wired up an on/off switch for the "kneading" mode because it always went into bake mode:
