Small, yes, and simple – just two frame, but a must have if you want to preserve your honey comb frames for repeated use. Place frames in baskets, crank, handle until the one side is empty of honey. Reverse frames, crank again. Repeat until honey is satisfactorily removed. Draw honey out of the bottom of the tank through the honey gate. There are bigger, faster, more efficient machines, but for the hobbyist this little beauty will do all that needs to be done.
