Well done if finding one, I am struggling over there to get the same.

Works a treat though eh?

If the rollers could be changed, you could make foundation with it as well...

A single tub washing machine is indeed a great syrup maker.

If the water is too cold there is a built in heater and of course there is a pump to circulate it with.

I used one for years to make my syrup and the pump needed new fins after 10 tons but I thought it deserved them really at that point.

Kidding aside yes you can.

Spinners are used to extract heather and to clean cappings.
