Honey extractor RPM's?
« on: February 08, 2010, 07:59:54 AM »
Almost complete a DIY extractor and I'm trying to figure out the best speed for a motor.

Any help?

Variable... One speed only will either destroy your comb or take forever to extract.

You always start out slow and gradually speed up, just not so fast you collapse or throw out your foundation.
