    What is the working diameter of that thing? Can you do Langstroth jumbo frames (11 1/8") radially?

    A thing of beauty.

    Thanks for all of the positive feed back. I was lucky to find it ! It was in the basement of an old farmhouse and really preserved pretty well.
    Aunt Betty: I'm going to use it, but it is a great mechanical piece of history.
    Der Tiefster: The outside diameter of the extractor is 95", it would be able to accept 11 1/8" frames. I'll be using 9 1/4". It will hold 24 frames.
    Thanks again !
