    I am curious to know if anyone has actually made or used the USDA-model 4-frame Honey Extractor http://www.beesource.com/plans/extractor_4.htm

    It looks like a fun project, I prefer to make most of my own supplies, and would like to give it a try if the expense is low and performance is sufficient. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

    I don't know anything about the above mentioned extractor but I was at the Northeast Oklahoma Beekeepers Assn. meeting once and they demonstrated a home made extractor with a plastic trash container with a block of wood in the bottom to support the basket arrangement. In the hole in the center they used the rattle ball from a paint can to cut down on friction. They used a variable speed cordless drill to drive it. The guy said that he had used it himself. Have fun.
