We purchases an older honey extractor an online auction for $25..will hold at least 4-8 frames it didn't come with a hand crank or motor I'm trying to figure out how to install a motor to extract honey. Anyone have a good idea?
I have one just like it. Theres no name on it, but I think its a old A.I.Root. Ive been told that Kellys used to make one like it. The top bar on the extractor has 2 holes on one end, another bracket fits in these holes, it has 2 verticle pulleys, a big wing nut, a fiber washer, & a thrust bearing. The more you tighten the wingnut, the faster it spins. Has a belt from cage top pulley to bracket pulley, then a belt from other bracket pulley to motor. mine has a washing machine motor. I have it mounted to a wooden stand, with the motor attached to the stand. I can send you pictures to a cell phone if you want them. I bought this ext. along with a pickup load of other good stuff about 30 years ago. I camcoated the extractor because it is galvanized. Been using it all these years & its still good.
