    Needed frames, so pulled 3 hives, got 49 capped mediums, still lots of uncapped honey, much more than I expected.

    It's a long process now pulling each frame by hand, can' even lift a medium box of honey any more.

    Have to start extracting tomorrow.

    Fun fun. Too bad nobody in your local club could give you a hand. Don't you have like an eight frame radial home made motorized extractor? I remember the picture, it looked very cool.

    Just seems everyone is busy in this modern day.
    I thought all these modern day work savers were susposed to give us all more free time ?

    Yes, I have my home made extractor, it will take 10 mediums, or 5 full, or a combination of 5 & 5 .
    This will make my 4 th year with it, Knox on wood so far no probems.
    Most all my junk/stuff is home made.
