I KNOW that this topic has to have been discussed here somewhere. However, I did not find it. Anyone know of any web sites or suggestions on how to build a simple homemade honey extractor? I would be interested in knowing how the old timers extracted honey without the use of high tech fancy schmancy equipment.
My sister and I are looking for a co-op group in our area to share extracting equipment. Has anyone ever heard of this being successfully done before?
Are you a member of your local beek club? Most of them have an extractor that they lend out to members. If not, there should be a member who loans his, or extracts for a nominal fee. One club I belong to has all three.
The club's extractor, two members loan theirs, and one member extracts for 5.00 per super.
