Bottling bucket holder/tipper.
« on: May 26, 2019, 08:08:24 am »
It has always been a problem to tip the bottling bucket and alway a concern that The whole bucket would end on the floor with a lot of honey spilled.
Yesterday I came up with this idea and it works.
It is very simple and easy to make. It is a one by twelve cut so that one board is just big enough to hold the bucket and the other is about thick as long to keep it on the table. There is one door hinge between them and for now, something to put under the bucket board to lift it up. I just found a spare 3 gallon bucket and cut a slot in one side that is big enough to all the honey gate to slide into and I screwed it down onto the bucket board. I plan on buying a bracket that I can use to raise it to any variable height and lock it in place. It is one that you find on toy boxes and chest that keep the top from falling backwards.

Good idea Jim. Looks like it works great!  Thanks for sharing.   Now, If I only had one of those 9-18 Mann Lake extractors like yours, I would be in honey heaven!
