A beekeepers  review of a homemade heavy duty four frame electric honey extractor. Visit http://www.mahakobees.com/store.html if you need good quality extractors.

This beekeeping 101 video looks at a DIY homemade four frame honey extractor that can accommodate any honey frame sizes. From ideal honey frames to full depth frames. It has a built in speed controller, and is mostly made out of washing machine parts. It is belt driven, has a large food grade bucket with a standard beekeepers honey gate at the bottom of the extracting barrel. The stand is very heavy duty, and holds up very well even if the honey frames are uneven in size or weight. Extracting honey can be difficult without a fully automated and motorized honey extractor, and we found this one in a garage sale for a couple of hundred dollars. We did not build this extractor, but if you have, and are watching our videos, let us know and we will be happy to mention your name or link to you beekeeping website.

Hope you enjoy this short video. We will follow up with another video so you can see this four frame stainless steel motorized homemade beekeepers honey extractor in action, or also often referred to as a honey frame spinner.

(via https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kh_zYrlLHUc) Beekeeping honey frames are essential beekeeping equipment for any beekeeper. Backyard beekeepers or young bee keeping beginners need to learn how assemble frames and how to embed beeswax foundation sheets into a wired honey frame. This video covers that in detail. All parts can be sourced from our online beekeeping supplies store at http://www.mahakobees.com/store.html at great prices, especially if you order bulk beekeeping frames, wax sheets, or hive components. Visit our store and get started in your beekeeping hobby.This video is the last part of our beekeeping equipment series that looks at honey frames specifically. Watching all the below beekeeping frame assembly videos will teach you all you need to know. PART 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRWxK2zc4qQ
PART 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=–xHCd9k4kk
PART 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fltI7Zcg3bQ
PART 4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLDLg0P-9hUIf you are a new beekeeper that has one or two beehives, you may be interested to learn how to save your already wired frames after extraction. This video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LJeMEf2lN0 shows a very simple method of removing beeswax foundation honeycomb structure after it has been extracted. It is wise to replace beeswax foundation every year or two to reduce the likelihood of diseases in the bee colony. The wax does not go to waste as you can melt it down and reuse for new foundation sheets or for many other craft projects such as candle making, cosmetics and so on.We hope these videos are of use to those considering joining the beekeeping community and possibly getting a beehive of their own, or those that may have a few hives already and are simply seeking new ways of doing things. We appreciate your support, so do give us thumbs up if you feel we deserve it, subscribe and share the links.Visit us on http://www.mahakobees.com for lots of new content.
Have a great day
