Bee source has drawing for a mod that seems important.  An adjustment that allows you to change the roller spacing to accomodate the deep drawn 8 and 9 frame spacing comb.

IMHO you do not need these modification if you are going to use a cap spinner
I do use these bags in my extractor for cap Spinning I do not need a metal inserts on the extractor I have.This is what I use in a Maxant Model 3100P for a cap spinner

If you need metal inserts here you go.
