That would be my choice... and it would be the only thing I would buy from BeeCommerce because I could drive to pick it up.

I wonder how many suppliers are selling the SAF Natura extractors?

no clue, but it seems to be well built. was worried a little about the plastic, but I think it will hold up well as long as its maintained...

The lid assembly is plexiglass, isn't it?

Devdog,

can you measure the shaft?

And I wonder how many turns per minute the average user cranks out?

Yeah, its plxi on the lid. The strainer and the tank are directly below, which i like. Shaft length from bearing seat in the bottom to gear assembly on the top is 20.5 inches. The gearing is not bad at all. Not sure of what the ratio is, but it wouldnt take a whole lot rpm to sling some honey....my 10 yr old will learn quickly!

Hey Mike, PM Bigbearomaha and see what he can do for you. The shipping was the killer, but i would recomend it either way. It wouldnt kill you based on you being in KY!
