Is it a 4 sided basket? If so, this is not a radial extractor like you were going to build. You put the combs in sidebar first, with the side of the comb facing the basket wall. Spin about half the honey from the one frameside, then stop and remove the combs and put them back in with the other side facing out and spin out all the honey on that side, then stop and flip the combs one last time to spin out the remaining honey from the first side. flipping twice like this does less damage to the combs than just extracting one side fully, flipping once and extracting the other side.
If it is not a 4 sided basket, then disreguard this reply!
I've been keeping a few hives for the past 20-25 years, and no longer treatment free as I got tired of the losses.
