Not so.
My father in law had an old galvanized tank extractor that had a lot of rust on it, inside and out. My sister in law still uses it.

$2,500.00 ?

Is that an offer? LOL



No I was considering your post and was thinking, surely he does not mean $25.00 dollars. 😊 or did you? 😊




I've purchased a replacement that is  made of stainless steel
James, where did you find that and at what cost?

Acebird: eBay. I found a seller of surplus equipment that sells at half price, though the "regular" price they had listed was already about half what I'd found elsewhere. It was certainly already half of MSRP. So, they  had it at about a 4th MSRP. Started to hit "Buy Now" then noticed they had a "Make an offer" option. So I offered 25 and they accepted almost immediately. I've found that the actual bearing insert can be purchased in stainless steel by itself, as well. Those are much more common but still more than what I paid for the entire ss flange bearing with food-grade grease.

For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

Ben,
The $25 was for the bearing.

Thanks Jim it went totally over my head, I was not reading closely enough.  :shocked:  :grin:

 :shocked:  I have an old galvanized extractor but have never used it. Thought about camcoating it and using it but figured it wouldn't be worth the trouble as it only holds two frames in baskets that have to be flipped. Likely worth more as a collector item. The Hubbard 2401 is stainless.
