    Default Great Grandpas First Extractor

    Pulled this out of storage to give to my brother today. Heres a few photos. I'm wondering what year it was made.

    Does it have two baskets inside that flip for tangental extraction? If So, my first was just like it. I loaned it out when I moved up and come to think of it, never got it back!

    It is the 2 frame "Novice" extractor. They made these in the early 1920s.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures. I love old bee equipment.

    I had one that looked a lot like that in 1978, it was well used then.

    I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up :)
