Re: Harvesting honey without extractor or crushing comb?
Well, if you are a handy person, you can build an extractor for minimal cash. Here's a link to one of the more interesting treadmill motor powered home-built extractor threads (with photos):
Treadmills typically have a variable speed motor and associated control system. This makes them more desirable than a motor that is fixed speed.
As I understand it, you are wanting to extract from frameless top bar combs. To have any chance of doing that successfully, you will likely need to control the speed carefully.
