medina novice extractor
« on: June 03, 2011, 04:14:07 PM »
Just bought a beautiful antique extractor for 50.00   It doesn't say AI Root but must have been made by them.  All the cast iron and gearing is perfect.    It came with a old rusted smoker.  They will look great in my Bar.   Anyone have any info on this beauty

I will post some pics but I was hoping some of the real old timers would chime in and tell me what I have here.   It says medina O novice honey extractor The woman still had 2 more old smokers and another Root 2 frame along with the most amasing private collection od mint tools and hand operated machines that I had ever seen.   Her husband spent his life collecting cleaning and displaining everthing you can imagine.   ever see a bull mask?  theres one on the wall   She plans on auctioning it all off.
