Re: Finally extracted our honey
The bottom bearing are the (2) motor bearings. Have you ever seen or heard of oil or grease drip down from a ceiling fan? Not likely in twenty years of operation. The top bearings are cabinet slide ball bearings (4). They have a plastic race and it is very unlikely that oil or grease will end up in the honey. The wooden support arms are painted white. Do you see anything coming from the bearings?
