Hello Admin, .... I'm still ticking over, :) ............. or is it falling over ?

I had a good chat on the land-line with Hivemaker a couple of nights ago following a look in here.

What ones do you have for sale Frisbee?
Oh....two old ones, y'know the tinned variety, a 6 frame and a nice little 2 frame. Although no longer useable due to hygiene regulations, the gearing on them (and smoothness of running) is far superior to the mechanical ones available today. I had the dubious pleasure of watching someone trying to extract in a Thorne's budget 2 frame which is a direct wind and has no gearing.

its a shame we dont have anyone on the forum that works in a stainless steel tin bashing shop where we could get the outer tanks made and we can make our own frames for inside,

and hello john nice to see your out and about on the forum again, you must pop around for dinner again some time and Alison can feed us a slap up meal again

I dare say you could but the cost would be approaching the one on this auction site, I would have thought, if not more.

At around half price of the new item, it looks to me to be very good value for those with only one or maybe two hives. All ways round a starting point and will not lose so much, if the purchaser wanted to move it on later and buy a bigger extractor.

No personal interest here, of the item in the auction.

Regards, RAB
