      I also miss those old reversible extractors made by Superior Honey
      Company of Ogden of Utah. I used one owned by the leader of my 4-H
      beekeeping club back in the '60s. Built like a tank.

Now that I am getting back into beekeeping with the new survivor strains available I am getting catalogs from various companies, such as Kelly and Dadant. But when I try to find Root, all I can find is a candle company. Did they stop making beekeeping supplies?
