I got a phone call from a friend that knew another guy that just bought a honey extractor . The only reason he bought it was for the stainless steel tank for his wine and spirits hobby , when he found out it was a extractor he thought it was to good to cut up for what he wanted so he passed the word around that he had a extractor for sale . I went over the other day to look at it and hopefully buy it, here is what I found .

My mistake , I thought I was linking the complete unit , it is a tank with paddles and lids , no motor . I wondered about its value and what I could use it for . It has two fittings for hot water on the bottom . Whats it worth , I might be able to get it fairly cheap .

Two fittings for hot water? Are you sure that one fitting, a small one, isn't an outlet and the other one, a larger one, isn't a threaded hole that a heating element would fit?

If it is a stainless steel water jacketed tank, you aught to be able to find out what a new example of the same thing would cost from Kelley Co. If you could get it for scrap price seems like that aught to be better.

Maybe it does take a heating element , can't find the complete unit on the kelly site although the picture in the link I posted is the unit , not sure what size it is .It would be alot of creamed honey if you filled it !!!!! I don't think I have any use for it , if someone could use it I will find out what he's asking , when he thought it was a honey extractor he wanted 250.00 but now that he knows its not maybe it will be cheaper .
