Ok, don't know if this is OT, but I can't get into the OT forum (used to see it on the index page, it isn't there now). Anyway....I have been trying to figure out what I want in a milk machine over the last few months. I finally have settled on what I want, I just need some help on how to put it together. Because I am not milking a lot of goats right now, I have decided I want the belly milker from Hoeggers, I already have a Vacuum pump (Robinair 6 CFM) And I would like to be able to use that instead of buy another pump. Can I do this?? Or do I need this part?? http://www.hoeggergoatsupply.com/xcart/product.php?productid=3616&cat=8&page=1 It is a pretty expensive part, can I build one on my own?? Also, I know that this bucket doesn't have a pulsator on top, could I put one on a tube, and set it all up like this: http://hambydairysupply.com/xcart/product.php?productid=1071&cat=215&bestseller I need someone in the know to help me here, I know someone else on this forum (don't remember who) bought the hoegger bucket & set it up w/o buying the whole set up, so I know it can be done. Thanks everyone for all the help!
