I was given a used (Dadant?) stainless extractor. Looks to be in good shape except for two rusted bolts on the basket (?steel) and a dirty honey gate.
I plan on giving it a good scrubbing with barkeepers friend and maybe run some Star San through it. BUT:
1) Is there a way to clean up those bolts?
2) Should I try cleaning the honey gate or replacing it
Also, how modifiable are small tangential extractors? I would like to put a radial basket in and motorize it.
