In the next week or so I should have 30 medium frames ready to extract. I am ordering an extractor tomorrow. However, when I look at accessories, I am kind of overwhelmed at the filters, knives, barrels, drums, planes, heaters, etc. I would appreciate hearing what you use and kind of get a direction for what I need to buy. I figure I can spend as much as I have on this stuff, but I really just need good stuff to get the job done. I may have a few more hives in the future, but I doubt it will get to be a great big operation. Thanks for your thoughts on this!
