Mann Lake has an 18/9 frame radial hand crank extractor for $699. Now, I know this is a big extractor to turn by hand, but it can be modified to add a motor if it is too cumbersome. My question is, has anyone out there tried a hand crank extractor either with 9 or 18 frames before and if so, is it feasible? Or, is it just too much extractor to turn?
