Were those bees or just honey getting spinned?
Why did you do it(other than to test your back)?
Assuming it was your wife taking the shots, she sure enjoyed seeing you at your prime :roll:

Bernie, Bernie, Bernie:
Please don't tell anybody that you learned that from me (or anyone else here in N.S.)
Best laugh I've had all day, thank you my friend. :lol: :rolling: :rotfl:

She's used to my "experiments" by now.

I suppose it was curiosity about honey viscosity/rpm/centrifugal force/just can't wait to get at that honey/human robbing frenzy etc. I just should have done it in some secure footwear!! I did successfully separate a few frames later that day after my technique improved a little :D

Great show Bernie.
The first words out of my mouth were "He's gonna spin right of those shoes"
Post some pics of the honey you did extract.
By the way, thank you for posting the video. I used it as justification to my wife for buying a 3 frame Walter T. Kelley extractor.

Gunny,
If your buying already, go for a four framer. Balancing the weight of frames on opposite sides of the basket should be easier.

Already bought. Found it on craigslist. About 2-1/2 hours away, stainless steel, 3/6 frame Walter T. Kelley hand cranked........$60.00. Everyone says I didn't buy it-I stole it. I didn't steal it------I'm honest.
I've been waiting for the oppurtunity to brag about it here on the forum. Thanks. :yahoo:

Yeah, his initiation into the fraternity of beekeepers.

EF:
Thanks for the kind words. I used it last night to extract 10 deep frames-The prettiest (I know, I'm biased here) light amber wildflower honey, 50 pint jars. Then I ran out of jars. Gotta go tomorrow and get some real honey bottles. Still have 10 deep, and 20 shallow frames to extract.

Pic attached of my remaining 40lbs of light-filled honey. Beautiful stuff! Thanks for asking, it prompted me to take the photo. Common sense prevailed and we used a borrowed manual Dadant extractor, and like you, I now have clear justification to buy one in the future :D
