    Question 20-Frame Honey Extractor

    Has anyone done this one?

    Does anyone have a good source for the hardware for the bearings and bushings?
    Any tips for motorizing the thing.

    I did not build this type, however I got all my bearings at Orschlon Farm supply.

    I used self alineing bearings top and bottom.

    A word of Caution,,,, THE REEL MUST BE BALANCED ALMOST PERFECT

    I used a treadmill motor and speed controls, works perfect.

    Size 10 mediums or 5 full & 5 mediums

    PCM,
    Thanks for the tips. I like your design I will now look for a plastic containment vessel as it's got to be lighter. I hadn't thought of the treadmill motor but that would be ideal.

    Here is the motor, the pulley on the basket shaft is a 5/8 id hub used to weld on different size pulleys etc. for farm equipt. The cover is a old small stainless steel doggie dish.
