What to do with an old extractor...?
Below is a link to some picts. of what I did to rehab. an old Ohio Churn Company galvanized 4-frame extractor. I enjoy tinkering (call it therapy) so the hours were well worth it.
I stripped all of the old green paint off of it and coated the entire extractor with Cam-cote. Then I took off the old hand crank and replaced it with an oak top bar and fitted it with a large pulley. I then mounted a 1/4 horse power motor to a hinged apparatus outfitted with a 5-star turn knob to achieve belt tension. Finally, I topped it off with a Grizzly magnetic on/off motor switch. Walla...it works pretty slick.
Since the extractor and the motor were free, I only spent money on the cam-cote and the motor switch.
