A friend just purchased a property with a large garage that was a honey house.

There are two old Root J-45 extractors built with a single motor and speed drive system for each machine.

Other than some cleaning, they seem to be in good shape.

Minus the drive system, what do you think an old 45 frame extractor is worth? I'm not sure that I can use them, but I'd like to give him an idea of what he can expect to get for them. They're galvanized, and will need to be re-coated, but I don't see that as much of a problem.

Thanks.
