    Hey that looks something like the one my dad had in the 40's to extract honey from the frames.

    Perry, you got me courious. There was a D. Moore and Company Ltd. that made stoves in Hamilton from 1828-1915. They were called "Treasure Stoves and Ranges". Seems odd that they would bag the stove business for extractors. Do you think this was a another line or maybe another company altogether? That cast top seems to fit the timeframe.

    I don't know Walt. It's something I'll have to do a little research on and see what I can find out.

    Oh, and it's not worth $75


    I just got it for $65 a half hour ago! :wink: :lol:

    Thanks Walt. :thumbsup:
    I'm going to see if I can figure out how old this thing is. It is in excellent shape, almost no dents at all. It is super easy to take apart, no wrenches or anything needed, just lift the basket out. The workmanship in the details on the baskets is cool. The bottom is a raised conical design with a trough built into the bottom for the gate. Very interesting.

    Well, at least you know it's between 1845 and 1915. That narrows it down to 70 years. :wink:
