So our fairly new honey extractor chewed up the bushing that sits between the motor and the vertical rod. Can anyone point me at someone who sells these? Spent a while searching but am coming up with nothing other than a co that wants $30! for a complete coupling.

This is what it looks like but from what I see online 90% of powered extractors use something near identical.

It looks like it would still work, though it will be a bit harder on the motor and a bit rattly. But I second McMaster Carr, god bless em. If you take careful measurements you should be able to find what you are looking for or something close enough that you can modify.

Try VIVO honey extractors. They ship an extra part with every new extractor that looks just like the part in your picture. Their number is 1-800-371-5654. I bought one of their brass parts like that for an older extractor and it was about 11 dollars with shipping.

Good call Schultz.
I suspected a lovejoy coupling but had my doubts.
Note to OP

Unknown, eBay and the photo was in the original post.

I looked at multiple other extractors and most of them seem to use the same motor/coupling setup. Anyway I think Schultz has already nailed it. I will take measurements and order through McMaster Carr, I always forget about them. They
have just about everything.
