    Somebody told me some years ago an extractor needs three castors (or ballbearings) - like washing machines.

    I fixed mine to an old dolly I had with two swivel castors and two fixed ones. I thought that probably works a bit like having only three castors (?). Itís now working a lot better than when I had it fixed to the pallet on which it arrived. Then I could hardly set it higher than 7 or it would hop around frighteningly. Now a 10 is easy.
    I have three legged extractor with castors... it does hardly vibrate...(I ignore the spelling politzei :-)

    As for 'caster' also being a small maggot ... I shouldn't want to literally translate my own surname with that: a pot maggot (a foundryman, I think - somebody who casts pots).

    Charming!

    I'm "associated with the drinks industry" .... but only on Friday and Saturday nights ... hic!

    What a filthy afternoon. Raining hard in St Andrews and a few peals of thunder. I have 14 wet supers to return to colonies and I've forgotten my welly boots. D'oh!
