Walter Kelly Extraction Tank

been cleaned, food grade camcote painted inside for safety, comes with food grade grease tube (not in pic – ask me for it). i added a dimmer switch for variable speed control, works better than the slip disk on the pulley mount.  works great,  i am gonna miss this.  sigh.think  i have a pallet for mounting.
