Stop faffing and get a 3 or 4 frame stainless radial. Sell 2 supers of honey and its paid for. If the honey is theirs then you don't need one do you ;)

As far as selling honey is concerned, you don't have to jar it, which can be a faff both to jar and sell if you sell from the door and people turn up at random times. You should be able to find a buyer for 30lb buckets instead, whether its set or strained it doesn't matter as a beekeeper will be able to deal with it; just jar up a few for yourself with second-hand jam jars and you're done.

Lastly, this one is same make but a 6 frame one and has legs although no tank below which you could replace with a bucket!! You may even get something "thrown in" if you call??!! :)
