    Default Old 45 frame honey extractor

    I have recently bought an old 45 frame radial honey extractor. It was sitting in an old barn but it is pretty fair condition. It has a fairly complex clutch system mounted on top with a way adjust the speed. There is no manufacture name on the tub and i was wondering if anyone has a similar type extractor or knows who made this large of extractor. I will post some pictures later today

    Without looking up the rules, as I don't remember, you may need to contact the forum moderator to post pics until you have made "x" number of posts

    hi
    If It holds 45 frames it is a root. It has wooden pegs between each frame.
    by putting a frame under the 5 rods it will hold 50 but was advertised as a 45.

    What do you mean by a root? There are no wood pegs on the extractor. There some slots on the bottom where the frames set into. There are 45 of these slots so that is why i assumed it holds 45 frames. One of the questions I have is should there be something that holds the frames on the top? I am not sure if i am missing some pieces.

    yes, there were wooden pegs 4 0r 5 inches below the top of the reel. root was the parent company of bee culture mag. they were one of the first companies to sell bee supplies. now they only publish the mag. they made a 24 frame model also. I will have to look it up but I can send you a picture from an old catalog. we are going to south carolina soon to work some bees. in about two weeks I could send it to you when I get back. send me your mailing address by e-mail. these pegs could be made from a dowel with a hole drilled in the middle for the little bolt. probably could be used if the food grade coating from kelley was applied.

    @ beeware,

    Thanks for your help. Greatly appreciate it. Another question i have is that the folks who had the extractor prior had flipped over the "bottom" of the reel so the slots are facing down. It appears the reason why is because the frames I have dont fit into the slots, the frames are too wide. The frames I have are older also. My question is, are the slots suppose to be facing up?

    There is a forum called Rules and Announcements. Not sure I can make it any easier for people to find.

    There's even one called Image Posting Rules.
