The complicated part would be the water jacket!
If not for that, why couldn't someone build something similar out of wood? Paint it with Cam Cote and there you have it.

They are known as clarifier's or sumps, used to seperate a lot of the wax from the honey as it comes out of an extractor.
:thumbsup::thumbsup:
Usually honey and smaller pieces of wax from uncapper and honey from extractor are directed to one end of this tank, baffles will separate most of the wax that can be scooped from the top, honey flows to the other end where it's pumped

Also, in this set up a float switch could be installed, so when honey level raises to the certain level, the pump wil kick in.
nice safety gadget to prevent honey overflow:shock::mad:
