    Can't you just use a foodgrade tub or 7 gallon bucket?

    Cut a proper hole and Install a spigot to the bottom 1st inch, and install a screen filter with 2 inches of clearance from the bottom of the bucket. Shouldn't be too hard I wouldn't think

    I've seen a lot of old ones made from an old hive for the uncapping portion and with some kind of wooden piece to suspend this over a tub. The new plastic ones are modeled off of this, but made of plastic instead.

    Wouldn't a plastic utility sink work pretty well? They are cheap, readily available (Home depo etc.), are big enough to hang frames in, and have a drain in the bottom already.
