More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

looks interesting, do you have plans for this unit, or did you work from memory?  Glad it works well!

Thanks for sharing Bee-Bop!  Those are the best, most detailed photos of a home built model I have seen.  I have most of those parts sitting around my shop, but haven't got the project off the ground yet.  I would like to try to build something like that as a winter bee project, as I probably won't need it this summer, but if I can keep my hives alive through the winter, I hope to have a good harvest next summer.  Any additional details or photos would be much appreciated.

Just built a Whizbang chicken plucker. After looking at your extractor I may need another blue drum. Congratulations.

Yes it is a treadmill motor, had to add a small fan to cool electronic controls in metal box.

Got idea from the bicycle design, plus I used/revised plans from the " Yankee Beekeeper's Twenty Frame Extractor " available on the net.

Hardest thing was measureing,remeasureing, then getting it to fit.

Balancing the cage was about impossible, but did get it perty close

Any chance you would post a few more photos of your cage and bearing set-up?  Excellent work. Thanks!

Here is a picture of the basket;
 The shaft, 5/8 in dia. goes thru about 3 1/2 in and is somewhat pointed on the end, this is inserted into the bottom self alinging bearing mounted on a cross bar below the basket.



I turned the barrell upside down and used the large hole as the drain.



Attached to stand; You can see the honey gate.



For any one building a extracter let me know, I'll try to help.
